My First Month In Israel
Over the last 3 weeks, I’ve been fortunate enough to live in Israel to go on a journey to travel and learn about myself in a new environment. I’ve done lots of cool shit in the country and have had meaningful experiences to which I wouldn’t be able to have in Australia. Every single day here, I get really excited as each day is an adventure.
What I’ve done in a nutshell is I’ve ate lots of falafel’s with hummus, went for bike rides around Tel Aviv, climbed up Masada and becoming immerse into the culture here. Along with these experiences, I have met some of the coolest people from Israel and the world. I cannot forget about going to the bars in Florentine. One thing I’ve noticed here is there is more originality of different kinds of people compared to Australia.
Israel is very multi-cultural as there are people from Africa, Europe, and America who have made Aliyah to the land of Israel. This shapes different cultures in the country as country originality makes Israel what it is today. In the book Start Up Nation, the book mentions a statistic that 9/10 Israeli’s born today are first and second generation as their parents made Aliyah from the countries I mentioned above. I thought Australia was one of the most multi-cultural societies in the world; However, Israel is even more.
Next Month is going to another adventure in itself. The highlight is going to be in Ethiopia as this is my opportunity to get an Authentic Africa experience. Ethiopia will really make me appreciate how lucky we our living in a first world society. In Israel, I’m going to be in Jerusalem multiple times, going to the OurCrowd summit with my internship and seeing my friends from home. At the end of the month, I’ll being going to the Negev on a field trip with friends for a couple of days.
Furthermore, living here in Israel is exciting every day. Each time I get up in the morning. Cool stuff is going to happen no matter how simple it is. At the end of the day, I’m very happy because I’m able to live life to its fullest here.
Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a bit of a insight into my adventures here in Israel.
