About two years ago, one of my best friends (and now bridesmaid), Maya, moved across the world to Tel Aviv (TLV). Although we keep in touch well, I hate having her so far away. This September, I got on a plane by myself to go visit her. After seeing her life there, I can see why she loves it so much. It's a unique city indeed.

The media portrays Israel as a scary place, as it's in the Middle East near tons of wars. I read some scary stories on the news before I visited and was a bit nervous (although I couldn't tell my parents that because they were so freaked out that I'm pretty sure they didn't want me traveling there in the first place!) Once I got there, I felt nothing but safe. As long as you are smart and observant, anyone traveling to Israel will feel safe. You need to act like that in any city in the world -- crimes happen here in San Francisco unfortunately, and in Europe, South America, Australia, etc. You can't be scared to take a leap and go somewhere out of your comfort zone, as danger is everywhere and you shouldn't ever live your life in fear. ......
