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.
