If you have been following me, you probably know that I have recently traveled to Tel-Aviv, where I had to self-isolate for two weeks. After spending a couple of weeks in Israel, after seeing my family and friends, getting recharged, dancing and taking classes at an actual studio, as opposed to my living room, me and my partner decided that we have had enough, and that we are ready to go back home, a week earlier than planned. The main reason for that was the fact that being in Israel was quite stressful, with the relatively high number of new Covid cases being confirmed daily. Though we were on vacation and meeting up with our loved ones, it really didn’t feel as fun and as free as we were hoping it would.
Once we made it back to the UK we went straight into our 14 day quarantine, for the second time in two months. I would honestly not recommend anyone who doesn’t absolutely have to travel and quarantine to do so. Definitely not twice! We are now a week away from “freedom”, but it’s insane to think we just had to spend an entire month completely indoors. The craziest part is that a day after we returned from Israel to the UK, it was announced that now people who are arriving from the UK to Israel do not have to self-isolate. I couldn’t decide whether to laugh or cry, but it just amplified my feeling of life being surreal.
I am now trying to take it one day at a time. I have discovered deliveroo, have ordered online groceries from both Tesco and Sainsbury’s and started ordering Bread from the local amazing bakery 12 Triangles. I have also ordered so many things from Amazon, including a Swiss ball, ballet shoes and a diffuser.
Might post about a few new coffee shops I have discovered while in Tel-Aviv, though it’s not very helpful for anyone not living there at the moment…
