A few months back, while stalking Remix’s Instagram page, I came across a cool contest being hosted by Vibe Israel. This wasn’t just any contest, this was a contest to win a trip to Israel! My first initial thought was there is no way I’m going to win. Heck, you’re talking about the girl that doesn’t even get 1 correct number when playing the lotto. But, like many, I was intrigued.
Honestly, I thought it was going to be one of those enter your email address on our website and we never actually pick a winner kind of contests. Knowing what I know now, I feel horrible for even having that thought. Right away, after reading Remix’s caption about the contest, I headed over to the Vibe Israel website. I wanted to get the details and see if it was something I could even have a chance at winning. Upon reading the rules and regulations, I learned that there would be 5 winners! Yes, 5! This instantly boosted my moral, as I may not always have the best luck, but 1 in 5 chances is pretty good odds.
What is Vibe Israel?
This was another one of my initial questions. I had never heard of Vibe Israel. Was this company a scam? I mean, why would a company be willing to give away 5 full-expense paid trips to Israel? After some digging around on their website and speaking with the founder, I learned that Vibe Israel is a non-profit company that has one mission in mind:
“to strengthen Israel’s brand in the world, especially among the Millennial generation. We’re here to create a new conversation, a conversation about Israel’s creative energy”
What better way to get Millennial’s attention? Social Media! When you think about it, it is actually quite genius. Vibe Israel hosts different tours to reach various types of people. For instance, in 2017, Vibe Israel hosted a Vibe Urban tour, which connected Americans to the local people of Israel; a #VibeMommies tour, which hosted Moms that blog; a #VibePhotography tour, which took photographers around to the most iconic and local picturesque places in Israel; and a #VibeFood tour, which took self-proclaimed foodies around Israel to experience true local Israeli food.
The Dog Vacay Tour …..
Just when you thought Vibe Israel touched every kind of tour possible, they created the #DoggyVacay tour!! Tel Aviv happens to be one of the most dog-friendly places in the world. What better way to showcase Israel than through the eyes of a dog?! Dogs have the great power to bridge people and places. Who wouldn’t want to follow a dog’s journey in another country?! I know I would!
This tour will mimic many of the previous Vibe Israel tours in that it will be catering to the star of the tour: the dogs! That’s right, this tour of Israel is guided completely around what the dogs will like and all the places they can go. If any of you have been following my Instagram or blog, you know that I always strive to cater to Bruce Wayne whenever we travel. When I learned about the #DoggyVacay tour, I knew I wanted to take this journey immediately. A guided tour centered around Bruce Wayne?! Ummm, yes, sign me up!
I invite you to follow along on our adventures in Israel. We will be posting many Instagram stories and photos as you can imagine. If you have any questions traveling with your dog Internationally, stay tuned, I have a blog post headed your way.
