Jersey Jew Girl Finds Gandhi

IMG_2162

It’s not everyday that I can take a day off and just explore NYC, so when I got the chance I grabbed it. N and I were headed for a day of celebrating my 21st birthday, drinking in the afternoon, walking lazily between the shops that lined up the upper east side, sifting through treasured goods in the flea market, and galavanting through chelsea market. We made quiet a stop on the highline as well. It was gorgeous, green, and beautiful, just what I needed to re-energize and get ready for a long work week.

After golpping down two big glasses beer, and tiring our legs, we finally came accross the cutest, petite, looking restaurant. If one didn’t know it was there one could have easily missed it. As we stepped into Gandhi the atmosphere changed. The walls were painted creme-sickle orange, the chairs constructed form a dark and old wood, and the ornaments that aligned the walls glistened in the sunlight and made silly shapes upon our faces. So was the food good? I’m sure that is really what you want to know. The food was INCREDIBLE, mouth-watering, made to perfection. Being the only two people in the restaurant was actually an asset, a specially in NYC. N and I talked none stop, we had the full attention of our waiter, and even got some free bread and dessert out of the whole ordeal. The prices were fairly low.

Jersey Jew Girl Goes to Israel

IMG_0461

One summer ago I headed to the trip that would change my life. Packing a small suitcase crammed with clothes, hair supplies, make-up, and hiking boots I got into my SUV and drove to JFK. Being Israeli the trips to the homeland were frequent, but this one trip changed my life.

As I approached the airport I was filled with a tingling feeling at the pit of my stomach, what if no one likes me, what if I don’t make any friends, what if this trip is terrible? So on and so forth that voice played in my head like a record player without the option of pause.

The trip was anything, but boring, bad, or terrible. We traveled around the tiny country exploring nature, cities, clubs, restaurants, and street markets. We rode camels, and slept in tents, we hiked to see the sunset, and kissed under the moon lit stars, well some of us at least. For all the sleepless nights, the hours in the sun, and the days of traveling I wouldn’t change my trip for the world. Experiencing Israel through the eyes of a traveler, a tourist, was something I had never gotten to do. The views were breath-taking, and the feelings were emotional. The greatest thing to happen on the trip wasn’t the food, the scenery, or even the beach it was meeting the greatest guy in the whole world. As we are approaching our one year anniversary, oh my goodness I can’t believe it’s been a year, I am again reminded how amazing the Birthright trip I took was.
