Dekel & I will be vacationing in beautiful Eilat this weekend, I am so happy to say that I will be Out Of Office and Out Of Touch with the world for one whole weekend.

Eilat is located at the southern most tip of Israel and it is about a 5 or 6 hour drive (depending on which one of us drives) from where we live. It is a tourist magnet especially in the summertime because of its hot climate. It’s known for its clear water, beautiful coral reefs, dolphin sightseeing and nightlife. You can easily access Egypt, Jordan and Syudia Arabia from Eilat and one day I hope to make the trip past Eilat and into one of the seven wonders of the world: Petra, Jordan.

But….while in Eilat, I plan to relax, lounge by the hotel pool with my book in one hand and a cocktail in the other, visit a few cute cafes & restaurants in town, snorkel lay by the Red Sea because unfortunatly the water will be too freezing to swim in and shop. Eilat residents and visitors benefit from the no VAT (Value Added Tax) law, meaning it’s about a 16% discount on everything, all the time. yes!
