Hiking or traveling through the backcountry would make for a memorable and exciting experience, and you could even come across some camels on your way.
Check out the Supermarket
Sometimes, visiting the supermarket might get you prepared for the weekend. You could also come across some unique things that you could take home to family and friends. You could buy some water bottles to take along on your tour or try out some new snacks that would make for a great story when you finally head back home. Always ask for what would give you that 'Israeli exposure'. Ensure you take some local currency along on your way because some supermarkets in Israel require some change before you can get a grocery store.
