Actually you should not swim to manatees, because they lose the fear of humans and especially of their boats (and propellers). But this one joined me unasked, swam along and did a nose boop. I couldn‘t avoid it. 🧜🏻‍♀️ #tbt #throwback #manatee #manateesofinstagram #manateecounty #siren #florida #usa #floridalife

Actually I‘m a cat person. But dogs digging up holes in my garden are cute, too. 🐶💤 #dogsofinstagram #beaglesofinstagram #beagle #summervibes #dogsofinstaworld #doggy #doggystyle🐶 #emsland #niedersachsen #countrylife #countryside #landleben #beaglemania

Me (right) with a horse (left). Horse’s name is Kiss and it loves to be cuddled. Like me. I don’t lick everyone’s face, though. 🐎🧡 #horsesofinstagram #horse #horseselfie #horseoftheday #equitation #countryboy #countrylife #selfietime #lawyerlife #lawyer #animals #sachsen #longface

The sad thing about the visit to the highly recommended Holocaust Museum was that many of the beginnings of the persecution of the Jews shown there can be found more and more frequently in contemporary politics and media. 😞 #israel #jerusalem #history #holocaustmemorial #holocaust #shoah #jewish #travelgram #throwback #sad #jerusalemoftheday #historyrepeatsitself #instatravel

Israel was a Humus Paradise and also otherwise the food was delicious, light and rich in fish. 🇮🇱🍲🐟 This is also where my ability to describe food comes to an end. But anyway, that's what the pictures are for. 😬 #israel #foodporn #foodie #travelgram #instatravel #lawyerlife #eating #eathealthy #humus #shakshuka #jerusalem #telaviv #pornfood

In the foreground is the ancient Arab port city of Jaffa and behind it the 100 year old and modern Tel Aviv. In Israel there are contrasts wherever you look. 🧕🏻👯‍♀️🇮🇱 #israel #telaviv #jaffa #history #oldcity #whitecity #travelgram #instatravel #iloveisrael #discoverisrael #lawyerlife #nightlife #skyline #nightsky #skyscraper #nightphotography

It was a good idea to set Tel Aviv at the end of the trip.🇮🇱 Here the world was different from Jerusalem. Instead of religion,🕍 the joy of life and hedonism seem to be in the first place and the beach was covered in a sweet and funny scent. 🏖☘️ The other way round, the adjustment to Jerusalem would have been surely more difficult. At least for me. 😬 #israel #telaviv #beach #seaside #mediterranean #sea #summervibes #beachbody #summer #travelgram #instatravel #iloveisrael #waves #discoverisrael #lawyerlife #legalize #hedonism #easylife #lifesabeach

I’m awesome at haggling. Saved at least 1 Euro at the first pinch of spices and left the shop ten minutes later with spices worth of 100 Euro ... And I’m not even cooking myself! 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️🇮🇱💸 #market #jerusalem #spices #shopping #israel #telaviv #whitecity #travelgram #instatravel #iloveisrael #discoverisrael #lawyerlife #jerusalemoftheday #halva #haggling

So I definitely have to get back to Jerusalem. ❤️ I have the feeling to have seen only a fraction of all old walls, altars or legends. 🤠🇮🇱 The atmosphere in the alleys, different cultures, religions and singing pilgrims also fascinated me. All that was missing was a forgotten Crusader under armour.⚔️ #israel #travelgram #instatravel #iloveisrael #jerusalem #spiritual #religion #discoverisrael #lawyerlife #history #jerusalemoftheday #streetlife #ancient #oldcity #islam #muslim #tour

With the Christians it was as I had hoped. Dark, smoky and stone smelling with lots of bling bling. ⛪️🇮🇱💎 Fantastic! Like heaven. 😬 With a Jesus crypt (rebuilt, the allegedly real tomb of Jesus had been removed by the souvenir hunters) and the stone on which Jesus was anointed before he went to heaven (like Muhammad after him). 🚀 In Israel there seems to be a lot of gravitational anomalies. So be careful. ☝🏼 #israel #travelgram #instatravel #iloveisrael #jerusalem #spiritual #religion #discoverisrael #lawyerlife #pray #church #jesus #christianity #crypt #light #rayoflight #enlightment #ancient #oldcity #jesus #jesuschrist #jesuschristsuperstar

The special atmosphere between Jews and Muslims is in particular created by the fact that their sanctuaries stand side by side on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. 🕍🕌 Despite all the imponderabilities, a visit to the Muslim part is possible and worthwhile. By the way, Muhammad is said to have ascended to heaven at this place and to have come back again. To me it all sounds as plausible as the stories of other religions and I would not dare to even begin to explain the conflict around the Temple Mount. I simply enjoyed the splendour of tiling at the Dome of the Rock. Peace. ✌🏽🇮🇱 #israel #travelgram #instatravel #iloveisrael #jerusalem #spiritual #religion #discoverisrael #lawyerlife #pray #templemountain #domeoftherock #islam #mosque

The Wailing (or Western) Wall, which the Jews consider a sacred place. 🇮🇱🕍 Built by King Herod as part of a temple, that was destroyed by the Romans (apparently a common pattern in Israel‘s history). According to the tradition I placed a prayer in one of the cracks. Now I‘m waiting for the fame and the riches. 🙏🏼💸#investment #spirituality #israel #iloveisrael #jerusalem #jewish #culture #wailingwall #templemount #alburaq #pray #travel #lawyerlife #history #ancient #travelgram

Floating on the Dead Sea. 🇮🇱🏝📰 Please add the obligatory newspaper in your imagination. I really thought there would be fake newspapers aviable for tourists. 🤷🏻‍♂️Anyway, it was enjoyably tingling and you can get used to floating on the water very quickly. Tastes terrible, though. #deadsea #bigfoot #israel #iloveisrael #desert #floating #salt #travelgram #travel #israel #desert #judeandesert #totesmeer #discoverisrael #lazy #lawyerlife #lifesabeach

This over 2000 years old fortress atop an isolated rock plateau provides magnificent views over the Judaean Desert, the Dead Sea and has an exciting history including Romans, King Herod and a mass suicide after the last battle over the Fortress. Don’t miss it, if you are in Israel. 🏜🇮🇱⚔️ #israel #masada #masadafortress #desert #travelgram #deadsea #discoverisrael #loveisrael #ruins #romans #judea #romanempire #history #ancient

I hate mornings, but I’m gracious enough to make an exception for the sunrise over the Dead Sea 🌄 (and because climbing up all the way to the Masada Fortress in the heat of the day, 40 °C 😱☀️was even less appealing.) #israel #masada #masadafortress #desert #deadsea #judeandesert #sunrise #sunrise_lovers #deadsea #earlybird #travelgram #discoverisrael #nature #loveisrael #oasis

The Szimpla Sunday Farmers' Market might not be big or offers a grealt variety of goods, but it has an unique atmosphere, which is worth a visit. And don’t miss the breakfast buffet. ☝🏼 #budapest #budapestagram #hungary #market #produce #farmersmarket #travelgram #lawyerlife #lawyer #szimplakert
