Haifa is the third largest city in Israel and the largest in the northern part of Israel. Home to the Bahai Faith and its stunning terraced gardens on Mount Carmel you will also find leading universities in the Technion and University of Haifa nearby. Combine that with a number of high tech parks that house some of the most recognised brands in the world like Intel, Google and Microsoft and you have a city of endless potential.
I was lucky enough to visit most of these sites and meet the people who call the city home for myself. And while I’m yet to see everything it has to offer I know I’ve got an open invitation to return, especially when I’ve yet to try the best falafel it has to offer (or was that the best falafel in Israel huh Omry).
Beautiful panorama! It’s been great following your trip through Israel on your blog and on Facebook because that’s one of the areas of the world I know very little about at the moment. Thanks for sharing and documenting your experience as you learn about the country and the culture.
Thanks Lily the view out over Haifa from above the Bahai Gardens was amazing. I honestly didn’t know a great deal about Israel either before the trip but have learnt so much from everyone involved with it now.
This is lovely, Chris! So great to hear you had such an amazing time in Israel 🙂
Cheers Candice it’s been an awesome experience for me. I need to catch up on your India adventure now 🙂
Sick sick shot there mate, I’m trying to master the old panoramic shots myself. Great stuff. Like Lily I’ve followed your Israel with great interest, I have a friend who works in a Kibbutz over there. I must visit.
Mike I cheated a little to be honest. It’s actually two widescreen shots from my camera and then worked together in photoshop so not all the work is mine 🙂
Def get over to Israel mate it was a blast for me. I stayed in a Kibbutz while there on the trip, where does your friend work?
Not sure about the name of the Kibbutz where he works, but I do know I plan on paying a visit soon. I hear the Middle East in general calling.
