What do you do and why do you do it?

I am a content marketing manager at Cool Cousin! And I do it because it's making me INSANELY rich. And because it combines everything I love - digital content, stories and traveling. And money.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Let's just say I've had my share of "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" by The Smiths growing up.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

THE SOPRANOS . Way up.

Name some spots in Tel-Aviv that are good for a Tinder date.

A la rampa! Good vibes, nice food, and a location that's not so central so you'll have some privacy. Plus that's where I've had my first date with my boyfriend so there most be good karma or something.

Who’s your hero and where in Tel-Aviv would you take them out for a serious hang?

Could be amazing if I could meet my hero Nora Ephron (RIP). I would just take her to some nice coffee, maybe Tola'at Sfarim, to have a long long talk about writing, feminism and life.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

Nothing you never heard of. Mostly Asos and chain stores. Sometimes I splurge on some local designers stuff.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

The port at night. Not my scene.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

I love Tel-Aviv's Museum but rarely go there.

What’s the most expensive restaurant / spa / hotel you’ve ever been to in Tel-Aviv? How much did it cost and what did you get there?

I guess Taizo Restaurant. It ended up around 700 shekel for a couple. We didn't order form the menu, we just told the waiter to give us good stuff. And god, it was good.

Where would you take your partner in Tel-Aviv if you wanted to really pamper them?

My partner likes food (one of many things we have in common), so I would take him to one of the more expensive restaurants we like - Taizu, Mashya, Shila, etc.

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

Don't leave Israel before you try BAMBA. I love it so much I sometimes bring some when I travel abroad just cause it's so hard for me to not eat it.

What’s the one place you think is overrated in Tel-Aviv?

Port Said. The food is really good, but I don't like waiting too long for a table.

What’s the one place you think is underrated in Tel-Aviv?

Aroma. It's like the Israeli Starbucks, and it's not considered cool by any means, but I love it. Please love it too.

What are the Tel-Aviv spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

The beach, Tel Aviv museum, Jaffa.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Tel-Aviv. How do you spend it?

Eating as much as I can (we have the best food in the world) and drinking wine with my closest friends .

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Barcelona. Feels like the european version of Tel-Aviv.
