Jerusalem – Travel Diaries Part 1

I am really excited to be back in London, and finally back into the blogging world! After disappearing from the blogging scene for about 3 weeks! I’ve just come back from visiting my Homeland <3 Jerusalem! & I got to catch up with all my family, which was amazing & also take in some of the sun, Hurrayyyy!

I just wanted to share with you all some photos of my first few days in my Homeland. This holiday was more a family catch up, then an adventure / history type of trip for me, so instead I wanted to invite you all into a journey how it would have felt to walk in my shoes! <3


& it all started in Terminal 5 at London Heathrow on my 10.30pm Flight!!! & I arrived in Tel Aviv at 5am in the morning :P, my flight with British Airways was more than comfortable, it was really comfy & fun! I ended up watching Straight outta Compton from their entertainment selection & that was something I’ve been wanting to see for ages :p!!!

All the houses are built with rectangular stones <3, and all the levels of the houses are different as they’re on mountains


Had an awesome breakfast <3


A Little Kitty I named Esmerelda ๐Ÿ˜€


Lovely Palestinian Art work ๐Ÿ™‚

My little cousin Mohammed Hiding his face, oh gosh! he’s so camera shy hehe :D!


He’s so adorable <3 ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€


Went to See my cousins in Ramallah, and ate at the Pizza Hut there <3 that’s me & my cousin Areen in the picture above <3 ๐Ÿ™‚


Me and my little Cousin, I swear I want to adopt him as my own KIDDDDDD <3 <3

Went to visit my Grandad’s house & went outside to the garden, my Grandad god rest his soul had green fingers & his garden was a haven of fruit & vegetables, I came across the Lemon tree in his garden & picked up a couple, as I adore lemons!!! <3


& I visited a placed called Abu Shukri in Beit Hanina, Jerusalem! IT’S THE BEST PLACE FOR BREAKFAST & THEY MAKE DELICIOUS HUMOUS! ๐Ÿ˜€
