Beyond the Scoot: Happiness Measured in Coffee.

Shalom Tel Aviv: the best way to say goodbye, that only makes you want to “stay, stay, stay for a while“. 

Yesterday’s goodbye to Jerusalem at the Austrian Hospice: a peaceful rest from the chaos below.

Boker Tov and Shabbat Shalom.

My favorite cafe in Rehovot: Chef Emmanuel. So charming. 

This past week has flown by and I’ve covered a great many kilometers trying to say “Shalom” in my own way before leaving. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy some rather great moments in all the chaos this past week and take some time to enjoy the now that will soon be only memories. Today is my last day of rides with the vespa, as my scooter insurance covers till the end of the day. 

The range of feelings I have experienced this week has left me a bit exhausted. I keep floating from excitement to return stateside (and seeing my loved ones at home) to yearning for more time with this beautiful land and loved ones here. At least I know that October’s return flight will be here before I know it and there is comfort in that. I can’t wait to eat tons of Tex-Mex and Chick-fil-a. Woohoo.

I’ll only add these few photos today and get the vespa adventures posted soon, but I thought these moments were worth sharing. I hope all of you have a very lovely weekend. Cheers.
