In about 12 hours, I’ll be hailing a cab and racing off to O’Hare airport to start my summer trip to Israel. I am so excited for this trip, but still totally unpacked. I’ve got a good pile, but my eyelids are getting heavy.
What’s on my agenda?
Shavuot in Tel Aviv with friends of a friend. Then up to Safed for a night. Back to Tel Aviv for the big Mashable Party. A day at Wolf PR, our Edelman Affiliate in Tel Aviv, talking about Edelman Digital and possibly meeting with the media. That night I’ll be meeting friends on the beach, most of them in person for the first time.
The next morning, I’ll hop onto the bus and go up to Jerusalem where I’ll have lunch with Ronnie. Yes, Chicago Ronnie. We can’t find time to see each other in Chicago, so we’re seeing each other in Jerusalem. Which is fair enough. That shabbat I’ll be crashing with CK from Jewlicious and having my first traditional shabbat ever. So, um, you won’t be hearing from me that day.
Then Sunday I’ll drag my suitcase across Jerusalem to the hotel that I’ll call home for a week of ROI120. When that wraps up, I’ll meet blog reader Rachel for dinner and then come back to Chicago.
It sounds like a lot, but it is mostly unstructured time. Can you believe it? Unstructured. Hell. I could change my mind and go to Sederot instead of Safed, cause I don’t have my ticket or hotel yet. I hope to write a lot. So much so, that I don’t even have any books in my bag yet.
Watch my twitter, watch my flickr, watch my blog. I’ll be online occasionally, but mostly I’ll be present and accounted for in Israel.
