The Other Haifa

A friend of mine is visiting Haifa this weekend — I’m slightly jealous, so I’ve been reminiscing… This is from my second big visit to Haifa, while my parents were in town. We stayed on the mountaintop instead of on the coast and had a very different experience. First, the view was a little different.

We also had to deal with the crazy confusing roads a lot more — just getting into the parking lot of our hotel involved a couple of different attempts and a lot of circling around. Luckily, we had a car with a good engine (“shitty trunk…but good engine”).

2012: Year in Review

I got inspired to take a look back at my year in pictures. 2012 was a crazy year.

January:  Jonathan and I traveled to Florida for a friend’s wedding in West Palm Beach. While in-state, we also celebrated his birthday, met up with his parents at Harry Potter World, took a boat tour of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo, visited the Kennedy Space Center, and took a bike tour of Shark Valley in Everglades National Park. We were .thisclose. to alligators.
