Shalom! This week we finish up with our incredible journey to Israel by sharing with you our time in Tel Aviv, Jaffa and on the flight back.

From Jerusalem to Tel Aviv is an hour drive (without traffic). Tel Aviv means ďHill of SpringĒ, but metaphorically itís an old place revived. Driving down some of the back streets of Tel Aviv, as we made our way from the highway to our hotel, reminded me of some neighborhoods in New York City. However, when we turned on to the main road that runs parallel to the Mediterranean, its beaches it looked liked San Diego. The beaches and promenade were pumping, and I couldnít wait until my schedule allowed for some beach time.

We checked into the newly- renovated (2008) David Inter-Continental Hotel which has 20 stories and 555 guest rooms. Just to enter the hotelís driveway guests have to be cleared by a security guard and have their trunk checked. Thereís another checkpoint to enter, like all Israeli hotels. Once inside, the lobby had a typical international feel, but with low ceilings and tons of flight crew.

Our room was stylish with grass-cloth wallpaper, a leather-tufted headboard and a very comfortable bed with marshmallow pillows. There was a large, flat-screen TV, working desk ($22 a day for internet access) and floor to ceiling window with a jaw-dropping view of the beach (a block away) and the city skyline. The walls were thick, so we couldnít hear guests in the rooms next-door or above. The window and door werenít soundproof, though, so we did hear planes landing and taking off from the international airport, and some hallway traffic.

The marble bathroom had a tub/shower with one of those half-shower glass curtains, which I despise since the water goes everywhere. But you have to love the fact that they arenít filled with germs like shower curtains. Side note: the David Inter-Continental does recycle towels.

We have access to the hotelís Club lounge, which was on the top floor and filled with Americans, plenty of food (sweet potato soup, lasagna, salmon, salads, desserts), and drinks (including free booze). David-Inter-Continental, 12 Kaufman Street, Tel Aviv; Tel.: +972-3-7951111.
