that place: top five tel aviv

Those of you who know me know Tel Aviv is my favorite city. I go every year to visit family, hang with friends and chill on the beach. When I am in Tel Aviv, I am home.

For those who have never been, the city, the language, the unfamiliar can be daunting. So for you, here are my top five things I love to do and about  Tel Aviv.
