​Israel is scattered with ruins of ancient times. Romans, Turks, Arabs, Nabateans, you name it. Once in a while we go camping with the kids in national parks located near ancient cities. ​In these journeys I let my imagination take over and time travel. Being a guest in 2000 years old sites sparks my imagination and develops my creativity. Here is a personal story seasoned with an inspiring story and facts about creativity from ancient times:
A few weeks ago we camped in Mamshit, an ancient Nabatean city from Roman and Byzantine times. I didn't sleep well that night and woke up grumpy. I had my coffee and looked at the kids who seemed bored. Read the full blog.
