samti-lev – slow travel and local culture

Active since: 2015

Samti-lev is a valued blog in the Israeli travel blogs scene with an emphasis on art, local culture and sustainability. The name “samti-lev” is an expression in Hebrew. The meaning is attention to details and the verbal meaning is to put the heart. At first, my goals were to tell about my travels, to develop a personal voice in writing and to write about Meaningful and valuable topics. Today there is also a targeted niche: travels by public transport.

My Audience

like to read topics beyond the basic description of the trip. Surprisingly, statistics show that my readers are divided evenly across all ages. Some of them are travelers who don't rent a car.

Blog highlights & achievements

  • I took part in media tours to Gdansk and to Vilnius.
  • among the ten most popular posts in the blog there is one whose subject is how to feed ducks, geese and swans. That's not obvious at all.
  • I get exciting comments from readers about how they feel something else in my writing, how I make them motivated or how the blog enriches them.
