Growing up in Jerusalem, it was always obvious for me that the beauty of this place is in its diversity. In the last years I’ve been trying to share this beauty with my travelers. I’ve been working with many missions from around the world and try to go travel as much as I can to learn world politics each time in a different country. I am a big fan of the unique culture that is developing in Israel & Palestine – especially music and LGBT life. I lived in the most northern village in the country – on the border with Lebanon, to study B.A in middle eastern history and nowadays been living in Tel Aviv.
