Tel Aviv is a busy modern town - founded relatively recently in the early years of the 20th century on a pile of sand dunes outside of the ancient Biblical port city of Jaffa. It feels a bit saucy - flaunting its reputation as a city for secular Judaism; traffic is busy, the pace of life is swift, street life is active and varied, and the ladies are definitely not restricted to Orthodox attire. Tel Aviv provides a fascinating place to start our quest of unraveling the conundrums of Israel, but we'll all be glad to get out of the city in a couple of days and into the walk-planning phase of this Adventure to the north
Today was packed with meetings with 2 of the potential suppliers vying to provide us with the help we need to set up this new program. They tell us our philosophy of travel is a new concept in Israel - moderately challenging walks blended with visits to the major sights of the Holy Land. They seem excited about the chance to help develop the new concept here. So far, the help and the resources they have put at our disposal exceed any we've experienced during Adventure planning in other parts of the world.
Tomorrow we meet with the 3rd supplier and finalize our review of Tel Aviv, and the old port of Jaffa. Then its northward to Caesarea and the Galilee area. Stay tuned for more photos and reports!
