Searching for the sharks in Hadera, Israel. The elusive sharks visit the power plant in Hadera once or twice a year to escape the cold waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
We went searching for an Air Force Memorial Airplane in the Forest and we found a beautiful picnic area and an extreme mountain biking trail!
Over the last year, I have explored these off-the-beaten-track areas. Some of my favorite areas to explore are around the centrally located Modiin. I have created an ever-growing video playlist on YouTube of these adventures so you can watch and plan your adventures in advance.
I am excited to share my author story, from dream to reality! An inspirational story of 20 years of writing and never giving up on making it a reality.
We explored Tel Ayalon in search of the House of Arches and flew my DJI Mavic Mini in a cave! Along the beautiful hiking trail in Tel Ayalon, there are many species of cacti as well as huge fig trees that are a tree climbers dream.
I took my kids to explore a local Tomb of the Unknown. When I was in elementary school I was obsessed with hieroglyphics, treasure maps, and treasures in ancient Egypt. Being able to pick up the kids from school and take them to explore ancient ruins and an actual tomb is unbelievable!
I took my 2 oldest to explore Ayalon Canada Park located in central Israel between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. We discovered the Tomb of Ibn Jabal, a cave, and PHD student, Tomer Urca, who is tracking giant beetles with mini trackers! Oh, and there are also some incredible drone shots of the park and its breathtaking views!
My children and I explored the Ben Shemen Forest, centrally located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. This was the perfect way to spend a few hours on a Friday with not a soul in sight. Come explore with us.
I visited the famous Grasshopper park in Modiin, Israel designed by Ruslan Sergeev with amazing shots captured with the DJI MAVIC MINI drone. In his own words, “I try to connect my creatures, with the tradition of the Arts in the Middle East and its reflection in European Art tradition. I want that my environmental sculpture invites observers to take part in the experience, drawing them to touch the sculpture and become part of it.”

I am happy to be able to show you a small piece of the beauty that is Modiin, Israel. Modiin has been coined the “best-planned city in Israel”. One of the reasons is because of the beautiful parks built throughout the city. Here is a small glimpse at the beauty that is Modiin.
