You’re not supposed to post your travel plans online lest people see what they are and break into your home and steal your precious abandoned children… oh, wait – we’re leaving the children with my mother and sisters, I think. I hope. Anyway, it’s coming. I’ll give you a hint: the month rhymes with “fed blueberry,” if you place the accent on the middle syllable. Fed-BLUE-berry.
So between now and Fed-blueberry, we need to pick six places to visit over a 10-day period (not including Shabbos). I am thinking three in the south (by which I mean “central”) the first week, then three in the north the second week. There is a Go North group pilot trip the second week which will let us explore Nahariya, Karmiel and I think one other community up there.
In the north, we may have to visit Tzfat, though I’d rather not – only because I don’t think we’re going to end up living there, NOT because I don’t think it’s lovely! Somebody suggested it to Ted and so he’s gotten it onto his list of Possible Places. Oh – I just checked. The group pilot includes Ma’alot, Karmiel, Nahariya and Tzfat, so I guess that’s all there is to say about that.
We may or may not have flexibility to visit one other place in the north above and beyond the pilot trip, though it’ll have to be easily accessible from our base near Nahariya.
So – what do you think? Anyone have any must-visit communities, north or south, that we simply MUST consider before we head home???
