Nature and parties. What’s a better combination? I took a late night nap to get ready and woke up at 1am. An hour later, Elinor picked us up and we were on our way. The location is kept a secret only got directions on the night of the party. So it wasn’t until we called that night that we realized we were headed to the north!
We arrived at a vineyard with tents everywhere and a main dance floor in the middle blasting trance music. After we set up our tent, we went straight to dance. Thousands of people were there from all over the country to party all night and day and see the best DJs around.
Now you’re probably wondering, how does one have energy to last that long? Well I used to ask that as well but once you get there, the need for sleep vanishes you feel so awake and alive with the music.
Another thing about these parties is that all the men look the same. We like to call them clones. All the guys have long hair, pierced nose, board shorts and “Desert sandals.” They’re all really cute as well. The girls look less alike, however a group of girls thought they were fairies and covered themselves with glitter and wore tan suede dresses.
The best part about nature parties is that you’re in the middle of nowhere and because you arrive in the dark, you have no idea where you are. So only at sunrise do you realize what the place looks like. The view was incredible. When the sun rose, I finally saw the vineyard with hundreds of acres of trees looking over a large hill.
The music had gotten better and better. It starts out minimal and ends with heavy trance. At this stage, there’s no more dancing- just jumping! No one cares what they look like anymore, especially after the sprinklers. What a relief.
At around noon, I passed out in the tent. I was very tired. Andrea and Dawn were still going but my body was getting sore. An hour later, we left the party and headed toward the Kinneret. The water was so fresh and warm and it was the perfect place to relax after a crazy night.
Living in a small country has its advantages. You can get anywhere in a matter of hours. So why not travel around and attend the best parties? And while you’re at it, you can also enjoy the beautiful natural resources Israel has to offer.
