Haifa

Haifa, Israel

Haifa is beautiful with its terraced landscapes, a city built thousands of years ago on the slopes of Mount Carmel and bordering the Mediterranean Sea. There is a mix of ancient stones, modern skyscrapers, and lush mountain foliage, sparkling beaches, soft breezes, and breathtaking views.

Our experience in Haifa was certainly not what we had expected. To make a long story short, we got lost in Haifa. We took a wrong turn. Our journey led us on the back roads, far out of the way of what we planned to see. But going this unexpected way, we found wide, tiered, whimsical stairwells with overhanging, emerald green trees .We found peacocks painted on an old stone wall in shades of purple and green and framed in gold, and  lavender and blue flowers spilling into the streets.We would have never seen any of these treasures if we hadn’t gotten lost and then lost again. So I guess in life we are never really lost. Maybe we’re just taking a longer way to see what we were supposed to see, but never would have unless life made us.

Life is beautiful.
