Ladies and gents, today’s post is a special one. I’m bringing you along on a photo journey of my recent trip to Israel with my wonderful friends from Vibe Israel!
I was first introduced to Vibe Israel by my bff Ambitious Kitchen, who also had the chance to go to Israel with this amazing non-profit. Vibe Israel‘s entire mission surrounds increasing Israel’s positive standing in the world by bringing influencers on tours around Israel in their respective industry.
I went on my first tour, which was a food tour (I know, my job is so. hard.) in 2017, and I absolutely fell in love with the country and its people. Contrary to what I previously thought, Israel is incredibly diverse, tolerant, and um… COOL. The food scene is amazing, the people are kind, and the country is beautiful.
Needless to say, when Vibe invited me back on a second tour in exchange for helping them create the roster of the other attendees, I immediately said yes.
The second time around was such a special experience for me, because many of the people we met on the first tour were a part of the second. We did a pastry-making workshop with Alon Shabo, who I had previously baked macarons with and who is the sweetest human being ever. We had the most incredible lunch at Atalya Ein Mor, one of the most talented and warm women I’ve ever met, and I got to spend the week with Vibe’s wonderful staff, who I honestly can say are my friends.
My return trip to Israel was incredible. I cannot recommend enough that you put this country on your bucket list. It’s got beaches, mountains, desserts, food, nightlife, wellness, tech, city life, religious monuments…. truly something for everyone. It’s such a special country, and one I feel so grateful for being able to visit.
So without further ado, hope you enjoy!
One of my favorite parts of Israel? The amazing street food!
Our brunch feast at Atalya’s in Ein Karem, a hillside village outside of Jerusalem, was a highlight of the trip.

Vibe Israel invited me to a week in Israel, though I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the companies and brands that make Broma possible!
