10 Years Gone… Two Months On The Open Road

10 Years Gone… Two Months On The Open Road

Ten years ago, on this day, I set out on my most epic adventure. Ever since I was in a child, I had dreamed of driving to California to see the country. This all started when I was about 10 years old and my cousin Chilik came to visit us from Israel. Him and his friend bought a used car for next to nothing and just took off for the west coast, returning a couple of months later. Growing up…

Into the Negev Part 2: Mitzpe Ramon (Israel’s Best Kept Secret), Masada, And The Dead Sea

Into the Negev Part 2: Mitzpe Ramon (Israel’s Best Kept Secret), Masada, And The Dead Sea

So originally Ariel and I were planning a getaway at the Beresheet hotel in the Negev desert of Israel. But then, Jacob got sick on the day of flight and even though he was better, we decided to just take him with us instead of leaving him with his grandparents like we’d planned, or cancelling outright. The Beresheet hotel is really a very unique place. It was built right into a cliff overlooking the Makhtesh Ramon (Ramon Crater), in the…

Into The Negev: Avdat and Sde Boker Two Israeli Hidden Gems

Into The Negev: Avdat and Sde Boker Two Israeli Hidden Gems

About a week into our time in Israel, it was time for Ariel and I to get away to one of my favorite places in the world, the Israeli desert, or Negev. Originally, this was supposed to be a night for just the two of us, but since Jacob got sick on the plane, and although he was basically back to normal, we decided to bring him with us instead of leaving him with his grandparents. This was a little…

Adventure In Bermuda: More Than Just Beaches

Adventure In Bermuda: More Than Just Beaches

Most people go to Bermuda for the beaches and the resorts. Most people are wrong. Bermuda does have a lot of really beautiful beaches, including some really unique spots that have crazy rock formations that you don’t usually see on a Caribbean island resort (because it…isn’t that). The resorts are also really beautiful, and luxurious. So if you REALLY want to do the resort thing, you can definitely do that. But if you’re more in the mood for adventure, well…

Back To Our Roots In Bermuda

Back To Our Roots In Bermuda

For the first time since we’ve been married, Ariel and I were free for the entire week of our anniversary. It’s been a long time since we were able to really get away on our own. For years we’ve been talking about going to Bermuda, but each time we were going to go we ended up choosing somewhere less expensive. However, since we had Jacob, our time away is limited by our ability to get a set of grandparents to…

A More Complicated Adventure

A More Complicated Adventure

As I write this in Tel Aviv, Israel we are actually wrapping up a pretty epic adventure. We’ve been here for just under two weeks with Jacob – his first transatlantic trip (although not his first overseas trip!) – and our first major trip since our Alaska babymoon. It had been my intention to blog regularly during our time here, but unfortunately we ran into a few roadblocks. Traveling with a baby is always complicated, and often there are unforeseen…

Here We Go… Again…

Here We Go… Again…

Hi, I’m Jacob. I’m four months and 10 days old. Back in February of 2017 my dad started this blog about adventure travel because *he knew I was only about 11 months away from being born. Now I’m almost four and a half months and figured it was time for my own first adventure. So I managed to convince my parents to let me into their little travel party and take me with them to Jamaica. I was a pretty…

Day 3: An Anti-Climactic Conclusion, A Detainment, And An Amazing Sunset

Day 3: An Anti-Climactic Conclusion, A Detainment, And An Amazing Sunset

Keeping with the Paul Bunyan theme of the last post, the morning of Day 3 started with a trip to his….grave? I don’t know. This was pretty amusing considering there’s about a 99.9999999% chance this guy never existed. But it was somehow a little moving. Paul Bunyan is awesome. Is this really where he’s buried? No. It isn’t. But still. Anyway. So I finally made it to the northernmost point of the contiguous United States – Northwest Angle, Minnesota. This…

Here we go…

Here we go…

Hi, I’m Liran. This is me today. Getting ready to go on what is likely to be my last adventure for a while. Over the past few years I’ve been bitten by the travel bug in a big, big way. For most of my life I was content to live a pretty sedentary lifestyle, spending the vast majority of my time in New Jersey and the surrounding states. Outside of some regular travel to Israel to see relatives, I generally…
