This year we decided to go for a vacation at the North of Israel. Actually Lily and me were invited by our friends Shmil and Louiza to join them in a long weekend at the Upper Galilee.
We left in the morning of March 24th, heading North to the roads that take us to Carmiel, and from there to Mount Adir and to Zefat (Safed), ending our day in Metulla in the very North of the Upper Galilee.
The pictures below give some idea of the place.
In the evening we met another two couples who have joined the trip with a car, Tuvia and Hagit, Moti and Rachel. After a dinner in a nearby restaurant, we spent the evening playing Head-and-Tail quizzes at the hotel lobby.
Berenice Winery is a boutique winery built in a house in ancient Tiberias. The place is run by a very nice couple, Gidi and Estee, and is very nice to visit. Their facebook page is in this link.
Muse is a chef restaurante which has been there in Kiryat Shemona for the last 3 years, and is having a lot of success there. The meal was very nice, the place was very comfortable and warm, and after the meal we left back to the hotel for the night.
In the next morning, after a late breakfast, we checked out of the hotel and got ready for the trip back. While the guys in the car decided to take the straight way to Central Israel, we, with the motorcycles, decided to make it a day for a visit to the Golan Heights.
Well, the next stop was already at home, meeting the children, the dog, and sitting down to edit and prepare the movie that you can see below.
I hope that through this blog post you managed to get some idea of what the North of Israel has to offer.
