Dizengoff Street | Nahalat Binyamin & Betzalel Markets

Wandering along Allenby Street, King George Street and the infamous Dizengoff Street, we found the Nahalat Binyamin and Betzalel Arts and Crafts Markets!

There were stalls selling all sorts of lovely, pretty little things like intricate hand-made pendants, necklaces, wind-chimes, postcards, collector toys, paintings, ceramics and pottery, avant-garde Jewish candle stands, clay magnets, patterned cloth, puzzles, travel journals, hand-made kaleidoscopes and all sorts of beautiful art pieces. I absolutely loved it. So far, I haven’t really come across any other Asian-looking people – not even many English-speaking people. I think that’s why I see people, Israelis and Arabs alike who look at me twice or ask me where I am from when they pass me on the streets or at the beach. It’s quite funny! You definitely will not see a Malaysian backpacker around these parts!

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, I'm Janielle. I’m a muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others.
