" SO MANY PLACES TO SEE :-)) " galy's Profile

SHALOM from ISRAEL

I lived most of my life in Israel, on it's northern part. I was infected by the traveling virus, immediately as I went on my first trip (so many years ago).Till now, I collected all my memories in nice organized albums. It's great that I can share it now with all of you :-))

My hometown is HAIFA , and although I've never experienced it as a tourist, I would love to help you enjoy it. So, if you have any question about it, don't hesitate, to ask.

Autumn In Croatia 2004

"It is not enough for a landscape to be interesting in itself. Eventually there must be a moral and historic interest." Stendhal


We spent a beautiful week in the western arm of Croatia (with a quick pick to the cave in postoina, Slovenia). Autumn is a magical season, and the green yellow red colors of the tree with the blue turquoise colors of the lakes of Plitvice the blue grey colors of the Adriatic ocean and rust red colors of the roofs everywhere created a wonderful symphony of colors.

We visited Tiera del Fuego and Patagonia, on February 2004. On the way home, back to the northern half of the globe, we stopped at the Iguassu (or Iguacu) falls, and topped everything with the Carnival in Rio. What an adventure!!

Most travel is best of all in the anticipation or the remembering; the reality has more to do with losing your luggage."
- Regina Nadelson


We Visited SCOTLAND on June 2002. Started in Glasgow, went up north through the Island of Skye, to Cape Wrath. and south through FIFE to Edinburgh. The weather was awful, it was raining most of the time, but we didn't let it spoil our fun.
We found the Scots to be very warm and welcoming people.
