Trip to the North

As the temperatures drop and the weather gets rainier and colder, we love taking advantage of the last bit of warm sunshine to travel and explore. This weekend’s choice destination was Rosh Hanikra, a beautiful geological site on the Mediterranean coast in northern Israel.

ImageIn order to access the geological site, one must take a cable car into the site and on the way enjoy stunning scenic views. The first stop to visit is the old railroad built by the British during the British Mandate in Israel. This railroad was built in attempt to create train access from Israel to Europe that would travel from Tel Aviv to London through Lebanon, Turkey and other countries.

The idea of a railroad that travels from the Middle East into Europe seems like a wonderful dream that in today’s reality seems impossible due to the Middle Eastern conflict.

The next stop are the beautiful grottos: cavernous tunnels formed by sea friction on the soft chalk rocks. We took a stroll inside the grottos and enjoyed the stunning views, some of the world’s most beautiful views in our opinion! The turquoise Mediterranean water was splashing everywhere and sunlight that crept in through the openings made this place appear even more magical.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and wishing you a great week ahead!
