What I’m doing now
It’s my second week with Snyk and I’m in Tel Aviv for the product + marketing “small hands”, planning for H1 2019.
I’m so excited to be in Israel for the first time. I extended my stay to spend more time with my direct manager who’s based here, and that meant I got to see my 3 local friends this weekend. Iris and Nadav took me to the ancient, biblical city of Jaffa yesterday. We enjoyed the sun and ocean breeze and watched surfers. We had what many consider the best hummus in Tel Aviv, Abu Hassan.
At night, I caught up with Michal, my first Israeli friend. It’s pretty incredible reuniting in her hometown, 8 years after we first met. I saw her again today, and she gave me a tour through Plateau-like Neve Zedek, and East Berlin-like Florentin. She even escorted me to church in an, ahem, seedier neighbourhood.
I love how progressive Tel Aviv is. From skate scooters and street art to hip restaurants and bars. The food is amazing, and people, open-minded.
We celebrated the 3rd Sunday of advent in church today and I just realized Christmas is only 10 days away. I’m looking forward to returning to London on Tuesday, where I already have family in town, and soaking up more Christmas markets.
