Hi, I’m Hadas, 32, single, 5.5 years in Tel Aviv. I live in Sheinkin Steet at the moment and really enjoy the area. I like Tel Aviv because of the different people around that make the place very interesting.

I love the endless opportunities that the city provides and that it is never boring. but the best thing for me about this place is the beach, being able to watch the sunrise and sunset several times a week fills me with energy.

“What’s your favorite place outside of Tel Aviv?”

Emek Izrael (Jezreel Valley), the place where I grew up. I love it because of the peace that the area has, the beautiful green fields & natural springs all over, and the relaxing vibe away from the city.

“What’s the number one beach in Tel Aviv?”

Trumpeldor Beach. During morning it’s really relaxed and quiet with only some people doing sports or taking their dogs on a walk. Sunset time is also amazing at this beach. During the day it’s becoming a bit busier and many Tel Avivian’s come here to chill with their friends.

“Doing any kind of sport around the city? activity? something like that?where do you do it? what it gives to you?”

Running along the beach promenade. Helps me being near the beach 4 times a week, enjoying the amazing sunrises and sunsets, breathing fresh air and watching the people running or walking around.

Running is not only a sport for me, it helps me release energy and gives me the time to be quiet with myself away from the noise that’s in the city.

I workout at “Boost” which is a great studio that has a big variety of classes & lessons. I like this studio because of the personal attention they give, which is really important for me. My favorite workout is the ‘core muscle & balance’ exercise which helps me with running.
