As the country of Israel starts to open up again, and hopefully, the skies will be next, I thought it would be good to offer alternatives to the mainstream tourist attractions. You know what I mean; the museums, the Western Wall, the Hall of Independence, etc. However, there is so much more to the country that not many people get to see.
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. Modiin, also known as the “best-planned city in Israel”, is located between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The city includes a park in the center of the city with a lake and paddle boats, playgrounds around every corner, bus and train access, and a modern mall. You can easily make a day out of it.
The videos cover Ben Shemen Forest, House of Arches, Gimzo, Buchman Hills, Playgrounds, ruins, and more.
I have created an ever-growing video playlist
