Strolling Trastevere🇮🇹

Strolling Trastevere🇮🇹

I can mosey along the Tiber River for hours and never tire of its humming rush and scenic display. The foliage reorients, weakening leaves to make room for the beauty of bare branches. And as I cross one of the many bridges that link the […]

Museo di Roma🇮🇹

Museo di Roma🇮🇹

Like I mentioned in my previous entry, the Museo di Roma deserves its own blog post, so this is me doing my due diligence. In what is architecturally a palace, you will find some of the best Italian works, by the likes of Caffi and […]

A Jewess in Rome🇮🇹

A Jewess in Rome🇮🇹

Notable foot traffic, diving pigeons, workers lunching, divas brunching; Roma bears a semblance to New York. However, this city is spared the monotony, the graceless coffee breaks, the inexcusable lack of fine dress. NYC is home to wondrous magic, but Rome has evolved; it has […]

LA: WEEK 2

LA: WEEK 2

Like I mentioned in my week 1 post, I am soulfully an East Coaster and initially didn’t get the whole California appeal. Though I don’t have a total change of heart, I’m still happy to report that LA is remarkable in less conventional ways, such […]

LA: WEEK 1

LA: WEEK 1

My 2 weeks in California were filled with just the right amount of amusement to keep this East Coast gal from yelling, “Where’s a damn bodega when you need one?!” I was invited by several friends to come bask in the California sun and take […]

Kiryat  Yam,  Krayot 🇮🇱

Kiryat Yam, Krayot 🇮🇱

I frantically paced outside my apartment in Talpiot, waiting for my Gett driver (Israeli version of Uber) to pick me up. At last, an elderly fellow drove up and helped load my luggage into the trunk of his car, but not before quipping, “Goodness! Did […]

Talpiot,  Jerusalem 🇮🇱

Talpiot, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

The gorgeous Talpiot Mizrach was my last location in Jerusalem. When I was still planning my trip back in NY, I had multiple offers from so many wonderful people to spend the first days of Pesach with them. However, by some odd coincidence, every offer […]

Shuk Machane Yehuda 🇮🇱

Shuk Machane Yehuda 🇮🇱

From as far back as I can remember, Machane Yehuda has always been on my bucket list. When I finally got a chance to go 4 years ago, it was everything I imagined it to be. This time around, I remember being very pressed for […]

Israel Museum 🇮🇱

Israel Museum 🇮🇱

One of my biggest highlights from Jerusalem was the very impressive Israel Museum. Vincent Van Gogh’s 1888 piece, Corn Fields and Poppies, was awe-inspiring. The strokes of this post-impressionist painting had me transfixed. Additionally, their European art collection was just the right fix for my […]

Old City, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

Old City, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

This is where cultures come together, (or collide, depending on who you are and how you choose to view things). I personally loved every aspect of the Old City. There’s so many things to see, foods to try, people to meet. This is a mecca […]
