New year’s resolutions…

I don’t know if any of you even remember but a year ago I’ve started this travel blog and had exactly ONE introductory post for a whole year… Not the best way to get going, is it?!

it is now 2019 and I had a million new year’s resolutions this new year’s, some more successful so far (start a saving account, enroll in a French course) and some I manage to stick to almost every day but not as much as I would like to (get out of bed before 7am, read a book for at least 30 minutes each day…), as they say, I am a work in progress.

“What does one have to do with the other?” you ask, well, one of this year’s resolutions was to write a blog entry at least once a month, not too much to get me overwhelmed but not too little, hopefully I will get myself inspired and write more than that.

So here I am, re introducing myself: my name is Yael Jolie, but you can call me Jo (everyone else does), I am 38 and reside in Israel but for 9 years of my life I lived in London, the most amazing city in the world. I fell in love with it when I visited it for the first time when I was 12 and it is a love story for the ages, so you can absolutely expect some posts about London and all that I love about it. I have an M.A. in Art History so some travel museum content is also coming your way but only because I really love it, not just because I studied it 😛


Me at the airport
At the airport! Because this is where every amazing trip starts.

I chose to write a travel blog because I travel quite a lot, it is one of my biggest passions and I like to tell people about the things I saw, great places to visit and stay, differences in cultures, local attractions and the food! ALL OF THE FOOD!!! Which brings me to my second passion, cooking/baking and since I don’t like to limit myself every now and then my home-made creations might find their way into this blog… I hope you don’t mind (and I promise it will always come with  a recipe).

I promise my next entry will actually be about travel, most likely London related, even though I am getting so many Facebook memories from my trip to New Zealand I might be tempted to write about that. I just really wanted to re-start this blog and invite you to join me on this cyber journey. Have a great weekend y’all and see you next time.
