Shalom! I am still pinching myself, as I can’t believe I just returned from ISRAEL! If it wasn’t for all the photos, I would think it was all an amazing dream. Bruce Wayne and I were blessed to win a guided tour of Israel from Vibe Israel. We spent 5 days, 4 nights in the beautifully remodeled, English-speaking Tal by the Beach hotel. We hiked, drove and ate our way around Israel in the company of some new and old friends that you may know: @yeyush_the_chihuahua, @iggyjoey, @remixthedog and @ted_gram.
When we arrived at the airport in Israel, we were immediately greeted by a V.I.P. Club Service, which if you can afford to add onto your vacation, I would highly recommend it. With this service, we were able to bypass all the lines for security checks and Passport Control. If you’ve ever flown internationally, you know just how long these lines are.
Once we picked up our bags, we were greeted by our amazing tour guide, Oran, and the local Israeli news, who had gotten word from Vibe Israel that were visiting with our “instafamous” dogs. The news channel wanted to document our arrival and spent the next few days with us, interviewing us and recording our journey.
Our tour guide, Oran, was more than just a tour guide, he became our good friend. He listened to all our #humblebrag stories about our dogs and continuously asked if we needed anything, all while keeping us on schedule, which was no easy task! Trying to wrangle 5 picture taking dog parents is no easy task. For that Oran, we thank you for your patience! 😉
Vibe Israel literally had us travelling in style. We rode around Israel in the shuttle bus clearly marked to let everyone know we had precious cargo on board! 😉
When we arrived at our luxurious hotel, Tal by the Beach, I immediately saw the first of many personal touches the Vibe team put together for us. As soon as you walked into the hotel, front and center was a welcoming sign for our #DoggyVacay squad.
If you followed our Instagram stories through our trip, you saw the amazing suite we stayed in. Again, Vibe Israel, went above and beyond with the personalized touches. There was a adorable bed handcrafted and personalized for Bruce Wayne by Total Art Studio, a package of homemade treats from Pomeri, and a bundle of toys put together by the Vibe Israel team.
When I initially starting putting this blog post together, I had attempted to put it all into one post. I quickly realized that we did so much and there was so much that I wanted to share that I’ve decided to break the days into mini blog posts. If I left it all as one post, you’d be reading for days….. I invite you to follow along on our journey in Israel. I guarantee that by time you are finished reading our mini series, you too will want to visit Israel too!
