SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED

So, what's with this whole New Year's Eve thing?

Two weeks before the day, target in mind, we set up a “war room“ and call every possible acquaintance because, well, we need a party!

We haven’t been out for a whole year, the living room sofa seemed like the most tempting option for a night out, but suddenly … no! We’re these crazy party animals. We must go out and dance!

LONDON CALLING

So where are you spending the holiday?

I don’t know what about you, but my family is always willing to trade the holiday meal for Ben-Gurion Airport queues. We all know, after all, that nothing beats the holiday atmosphere at the airport! The congestion, the crowded security checks and the wonderful feeling that you may miss your flight any minute now ;-)

IT’S WINE O’CLOCK!

Last month I received two tempting offers. One business (the rumors are true, I've returned to the business world), and the other pleasure – an invitation to a private visit to the Galil Mountain Winery with friends and lots of wine.

After a year of achieving dreams and recalculating my route, it finally happened!  All the dots joined into a line, and the symbolic timing proved to me that I cannot escape from myself.  I'm a career woman, who finds interest and challenges in the business environment, but I'm also an uncompromising hedonist. I love fashion, beauty and style. In short, "both this and that!" So, there's no need to give up one for the other.

STATUES: QUEEN!

I flew to Eilat for vacation.

Why Eilat? Because I'm in love with that city. Honestly!

Like many things in life, there are also two schools of thought when it comes to Eilat, for some it’s a transit city on the way to their vacation in the Sinai Desert or nearby Aqaba and others find it very charming. Beach, heat, duty free shopping and If you arrive before the start of the season, the desert city can offer quite the pampering holiday.

MASKIT

I went on vacation outside the city. Just like that. In the middle of the week.

I don’t know about you, but the thought of that even being possible, without booking time off in advance from work, without rescheduling meetings and starting to program my “out of office” messages, excites the hell out of me. I can’t remember the last time I answered “YES” to a spontaneous getaway, without using those awful pair of words "board meeting".

This whole occurrence was so unusual to the point where even Mrs. Waze didn’t believe her eyes when I input the destination – Moshav Liman, which is located along the coast of Western Galilee. I even had to stop twice (!) Just to make sure I was going in the right direction.
