I turned 25 – again !
This past Friday I completed the spectacular Tel Aviv Marathon in Israel. The weather was beautifully sunny much in contrast to this past winter here in Denmark. See more on the race below.

Tel Aviv is a very modern, “western” city with an impressive skyline and all the things you would expect of an international metropol. However, the “poor orient” is always just a few blocks away, and the israelean security context is an immanent shadow everywhere in the infrastructure including accesses to e.g. shopping centers.
If a single point of interest should be singled out, it must definately be the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the collection of paintings is simply breathtaking! Visiting this museum alone justifies a visit to Tel Aviv. Go there!
Jerusalem and The Dead Sea Experience
The Holy City Jerusalem is in the proximity of only an hours drive away from Tel Aviv. Visiting Jerusalem was a mindblowing experience, seeing the place where Jesus was crucified and the wailing Wall cannot be described in words. Also, taking the Dead Sea Experience is something only the body understands, however, the pictures might hint the fun.
Tel Aviv Marathon 2014
The Tel Aviv Marathon 2014 started at 06.30 in the morning on the 28th of Feb. and the day and the event turned out to be so classy with soothing views on the Mediterranean Sea and many key points in Tel Aviv. The course was not deprived of hills/”bumps” so it suited me well to merge with the half-marathon runners when hitting midtown going home from Old Jaffa. In conclusion, Tel Aviv Marathon is definately your time worth while as is Israel as a turist/traveller experience.
