Israel is no stranger to online media and technology. When I lived in Tel Aviv a few years ago, FourSquare was seemingly more popular there than in my hometown of Boston. Maybe it’s because the country is new and the people there have struggled for so long and for so much, but innovation and creativity seem to flourish in this little corner of the Middle East.

For years, Tel Aviv has had a reputation for creativity and innovation in start up companies, so it’s no surprise that Instagram is equally popular in Israel. Perhaps too much.

Here’s a quick summary of my 10 days traveling around Israel though my Instagram photos. Be sure to follow me Instagram here and stay tuned for many more posts about my travels in Israel and the West Bank!
