When you have a long travel layover, find a great location, and stay a full day. It reduces the stress and makes travel easier.
The hotels along the Mediterranean ocean in Tel Aviv are a great way to enjoy the sunset, walk along the beach and have a great dinner.
Only 30 minutes from the airport. Much better than the 3 feet of snow in New York at JFK airport.
I took a nice run along the boardwalk to Jaffa to build up my appetite before dinner. 🙂
