Some Quick Tips

Being in Israel for almost 3 months now, I have learned a thing or two about both living in Haifa and living on my own. Although these tips may seem simple, it took me some time to figure things out for myself.

  • Cash

I am the type of person who never has cash on them, and depends on my debit/credit card. Although many places in Israel take credit card, almost an equal number of places only accept cash. I am still learning my lesson, and have been caught many times without cash. I am so grateful for all my friends who have help me out when I am in need!Shekel

  • Cooking

Although cooking is quite fun, it is time-consuming and a bit exhausting. This is probably the reason why I barely cook anymore. However, I realized that if I cook an insane amount of food on Sunday night, I have dinner for the rest of the week! It becomes a lot less exhausting when all I have to do is heat up my food in the toaster oven.IMG_8102

  • Planning Activities

Whether it’s for a small day-trip or a weekend vacation, I realized that I do not have to put too much effort or time into planning. Maybe it is because Israel is so small and has a great transportation system with plenty of lodging. I can decide to go somewhere the day of, and everything just seems to work out. Obviously, it is better to plan ahead, but if you are in a time crunch, a small adventure does not take as much work as you think!IMG_8177
