Reason #7 to take a walk: Not only is it one of the few socially appropriate activities in this era of Covid19, you can find encouragement, humor and familiarity in unexpected places and languages.

I was en route from the US to Israel and had a several hour layover in Barcelona. After conducting some quick research online, a trip outside of the airport into the city center seemed worthwhile! What was even cooler was the rest of the people in my seat row also had the same idea during their layover so we all ventured out together!
After passing through immigration, we went across the street from the terminal to a luggage storage facility hosted by the airport. We dropped off our bags and then steps away from that, caught a bus to the city center. The ride into the city center did not take long. Once in the center, we went to the Mercado de la Boqueria and had a bite to eat. Then from there, we walked to several other attractions and beautiful historical sites nearby! Once done wandering the streets of Barcelona, we hopped on a bus headed back to the airport, picked up our luggage and proceeded on to our next flights.
The next time you have a long layover somewhere and have the option to get out of the airport and explore -- do it!!

There is a place in Miami called Wynwood. Wynwood is a mecca, of sorts, for street art. The legacy of the artists can be seen on the streets, on walls, on buildings, and felt throughout the area. It has translated beyond the street art to inspire creative culinary, fashion and interior design cultures in the area, as well. My sister and I had the opportunity to have a mini-adventure in Wynwood, basically eating our way through the area.
Check out some photos below. Maybe you can guess which ones are my favorites!

Massada. Where do I begin? Massada, by far, was my favorite spot in Haifa, let alone Israel. I understand it is where all the hipsters go. It is an artsy street. I guess some folks looked the part. But I felt that the street spoke to me. It told me it was a street full of life, intrigue, imperfections and beauty. It was all there.
Massada Street is just plain cool. There is street art -- murals, small pieces of work, messages; there are cafes and restaurants; there are shops; there are people bustling around; there is life. Yes, there is life on Massada. Humans old and young, dogs, cats, etc. They are all there, hanging out on Massada Street. Massada is where I went to enjoy solitude, light meals, tea breaks, people watching, shisha and music. Maybe, just maybe, when I am old and am looking for a place to settle down, I will go to Massada Street.
To check out Massada Street's cool street art, along with some street art from Tel Aviv that I also found quite neat, click here!
I am like a breeze -- you can find me...
