Sundays In My City #17 - Tel Aviv

Do you know Unknown Mami? She's awesome and she created a fun Sunday theme inviting you to get out and take pictures of your city to share with the rest of us. Click here for details and her logo and click here to see Unknown Mami's City today.

In my travels I've learned one thing-- No matter where you are in the world, an ice cold Coca-Cola from McDonald's always tastes the same-- Super cold, as the slow burn of caffeine and sugar chug down your throat for some high-octane energy. I enjoyed a Coke at the Tel Aviv Airport at midnight Saturday before a nearly 16 hour flight back to Los Angeles..... and it was goooood.


As soon as I dig myself out of jet-lag, I'll be stopping by to catch up with you. In the meantime, I hope your Sunday is a great one!

I am so with you that nothing hits the spot like an ice cold Coke, no matter where in the world you are. Glad you are back and looking forward to hearing about your trip when you get through the jet lag.

Joanna you cracked me up with this post! I clicked over expecting to see I don't know what and was greeting by the iconic arches. Sounds like you had a refreshing drink.

Welcome home!

Hilary said...

Welcome back! A kosher McDonalds.. I guess there are no cheeseburgers on that menu! :)

cinner said...

Betty said...

You were in Tel Aviv?! How exciting! Can´t wait to hear more.
Welcome home and Merry Christmas!

Rowe said...

I find that too with their el cheapo coffee - it always tastes the same at every McDonalds and, I think, it's pretty good value for a dollar. Tel Aviv does sound intriguing, Joanna. Have you been hanging out with James Bond?

slommler said...

Nothing beats a McDonald's when you are traveling and they always have the cleanest restrooms. Well..most of them do! Welcome home
Hugs
Merry Christmas

Can't wait to hear all about your trip!!!

Little Ms Blogger said...

No coke, just sleep. Don't want the caffeine to keep you up.

Funny, but sad about McDonald's.

Nezzy said...

I'm so glad you made it home safely and had a good trip. I'm greatly anticipating stories about your trip.

Rest up dear one and have a blessed day!

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Yay for safe travels! And coca-cola!

Fireblossom said...

Got to love getting Coked up! LOL. I love the stuff. That, and chocolate are my drugs of choice. Don't try to save me, I don't want help! ;-)

Mike Smith said...

Welcome back Joanna!

Shelle said...

LOL I know what you mean about eating food you love...I don't eat McD's much....but I remember coming home after a 2 month trip in India and fianlly eating something that didn't burn. Hope you sleep off that jet lag quick, I don't know why but it's a tough one from that part of the world.

Christine said...

Isn't it wonderful that in an ever changing world there some things that comfortingly stay the same?
Get some rest, dear Joanna. It's good to have you back.

Christine said...

Isn't it nice to know that in an ever changing world, there are still some comfortingly unchangeable things?
Welcome home, dear Joanna! Take some rest and it's good to have you back.

Why is McDonald's coke always better? It's reassuring to know that Tel Aviv Mcdonalds coke is as tasty as Statesboro coke.

Toni said...

Damn it, there I was thinking I would have something healthy for lunch but now that you've mentioned McDonalds, I'm going to have to go to the canteen and have some fries lol

JennyMac said...

Caffeine is my enemy. haha.

hope you got some rest!

Rick said...

When we were in Barcalona McDonald's was our salvation. A Big Mac is a Big Mac the world over.

Ms Sparrow said...

How I envy your travel experiences.
(Except, I would leave out the MacDonalds.) Welcome home!

Trooper Thorn said...

I wonder if you regret eating Kosher McDonalds less than the regular McDonalds.

Ocean Girl said...

Welcome home Joanna.

Funny how during (my) travels, the golden arch is what reminds you of home.
