I AM SERENE L

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 ❀ 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! ❀

& 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

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!!! ❀
