MANDATORY MILITARY SERVICE, GAY RIGHTS, AND MORE IN TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (short doc)

Show Video

Years. Ago I am, solar traveling my way through Israel and Palestine and that was very difficult to explain to immigration and customs so you're travelling alone yes with no real connection to this land correct and you're not Jewish right, and you don't know anybody here do. People. I've met in the club count, okay so I've met a few Israelis in my life and a lot of them happen to be in the club they were all super cool super, curious super, open-minded. Super. Sexy. And you know that's reason enough for me to want to go visit a country though curious, open-minded, cool part not the sexy part although that does happen. Look. I understand, that this part of the world is superheated. There's a lot of tension conflict, controversy, who's, right who's wrong I. Plan. On getting to that in another video check the description box or maybe in the Carter here let me say this I want to visit every country in the world regardless of what the government does I want to see for myself also I know that the government doesn't always reflect its people doesn't always represent, its people the United States for example but that still doesn't mean that if you go to the United States you're just going to meet horrible people no what we're gonna get to that right. Now Tel, Aviv. Walking. Shot oh. No. I'm just getting a walking shot don't worry about me. Why. Did I just say no. This. Is too big for me I think but I let. Me try. How. Much is it though, wait. That sounds like a lot. Not. Yet. But. A thousand, shekels that's a lot wrong, but how much bullets. I want to try the price, this, oh, you. Okay. Do you have up okay. He just walked oh I, like these. Okay. The. Price is 100. No. You said 100 over there, lucky. For, you 100 SEK yeah give me have that fifty hundred fifty shake it no you, said 100. Okay. Give me under 20. Anybody. Want a wallet geez I don't have the best place we throw around Jesus. You. Guys are like my favorite youtubers. I love. Your channel so much. That's. So sweet of you thank you fishermen vitrified came, with the community, monarchy my venison be available, as no primo is available. Per visitor. So. It's sort of this thing when people recognize me or Joe I asked, to take a picture with them so that when I have down when this I can just look and be like. Yeah, maybe a vegetarian but I'm not a cat guy so I'm gonna go this, way. Just, like that it's already nighttime dang, it again it's partly my fault because I woke a bit. I. Unlocked, my phone to see what time it was the. Alarm screen was up all a to do was clicks a missed, my two tours but you know what that's the thing about these Middle Eastern cultures because they all take their time in the morning and then the real cities come alive at night at. Least that's what I tell myself so earlier today I went to this cafe called cafe pool I went because I wanted to get so shakshuka. Is. There any space for wanted, to borrow me me. I. Didn't, have shakshuka, so. Then I try to get sackcloth which, is like an eggnog II kind of drink in the Middle East they don't serve that till after 6:00. Now. That it's after 6:00 let's, go try to fire some Saha. Take, a left here take, the next right when, you hit Domino's. Pizza and they'll be like a Boulevard. On your left here is a place called Columbia they, have. Weight. You put that in there okay. Let's try it let's do it. No. I'm never never busy I, stopped it tried it yet. I'll. Get there it, just doesn't look the.

Most Appetizing. Yeah. I have a YouTube channel. To. Subscribe you. Guess. What. Show oh man, so do you really drink this or not. Oh you eat it you don't drink it no. Ok. I'll try. Oh yeah. This. Is great what, is it made out of this. Is new. :. Flow. Yes. My. Plugin, also. Like. Oatmeal, this. Is the, whole place is based on melody. Like. You. Know this is the cold version of this are, you doing I'm, good ugly. Nice to meet you Draiman. Yeah. Really. Yeah. It's the usual game of phosphorus, between conflicting campus they are on enmity, with each other yeah, they will put the stamp on top of the stamp of someone else of the reason. I, don't. Know, how to people. Here, we go. What. Else do you guys do intelligent here here where do you carry now then the beast market, now, I haven't been. I listen, to you can I'm just kidding. I. Always. Say that somebody who moves to a city probably knows it better than a local. And. That's the case yeah how do we say goodbye, and. Let, out a. Drought. Tada. Tada. Later. Out. There. Are such good people all, around, the world. It's. New Years and I know it didn't seem like it because it. Shouldn't. Cuz this is Israel and, they work on the Jewish calendar like a Hebrew calendar it's actually year. 5775. I'm. Back here in 2019, but the other way I, didn't want to say though. So. They. Have this famous drink here in the Middle East called anak it's a liqueur like I nice so. Basically it tastes like black licorice which, is not. My favorite thing so I didn't. Go with the Atok and I got some vodka cranberry, and said hey. Prices. Here in Israel are on par with the United States so you got to do whatever you can to get, on a level before you get there. You. Already feel like you're back in Europe. I. Just. Ain't bitterly gave me the chills. Dang. It I got cranberry, shirt. Going. So hard for. No reason. There. Is some reason is 2019, don't we celebrating, life the, year that we just lived whether, it was good or bad we can learn from it move forward it's 2019, it's going to be even better year less here. I. Said. I'm not here to see in the world from my own self I'm not gonna let anything else's opinions, affect, mine. Exactly. Like if you wanted me to avoid, every. Country with conflict or controversy, then like I can't. Even go back to my home country. He's. Not wrong. Okay. She. Hung up on me okay I'm going to the bar just. Find a girlfriend. Okay. You're. Crazy famous and I'm super lucky to meet you this is the the, worst party, and look around. 1.1. Million. So. We all know how Tel Aviv is one of the gate capitals of the world right, I've been dying every day bar, Club, by now all the name of research. I'm. Just doing my research okay if you are coming specifically. To see the gay culture in the Middle East I recommend. You probably come during pride because what you'll find here it's, probably more or less the same scene you would find in Paris or or New York it's not like it's lively you're crazier, it's not like they're block, parties, with shirtless men or or lesbian. Bars that are open all night tell you just gets its reputation for being accepting, because it's one of the only places in the Middle East where, LGBT individuals. Feel comfortable. It's a safe haven over here this place is beautiful, I'm. Hearing. Gaff oh yeah. Foe or Jaffa so crazy though. So. All these white cars are their taxis, and you can download the apps like get or yang, go, I swear though I booked this little beach house the one week, it decides for brain in Israel. Remember, those two tourists that I missed because I overslept right I reached out to one of them it was like a streetwise Hebrew, to learn other, than gwizdo --xe behind everything, here's the thing when you're on the ground and if you don't speak Hebrew you're probably missing, 80%. Of what's happening, on the on the wall on the menus on the street signs kind of missing the culture, itself so I wanted to take that tour the dude was in Shanghai he was shutting up and going but he did put me in contact with Tel Aviv alternative. To Tel Aviv walking, tours imagine, I kept the name okay they also weren't running tours today but they were super nice and they sent me a self-guided, freaking, walking, tour that, has descriptions, of all the street art and so now I'm out here walking let's go see some art. That. Person's always mean - I don't do group chats. She, was ugly tower behind me it is a prime example of, gentrification and, expansion, happening in Tel Aviv which explains why I just had a really nice cup of coffee around the block the tower was subject to a range of criticism, it was thought that it would hurt the character of the neighborhood which is composed of small alleys villas and houses, like this is what the neighborhood looks like so when you have just a high-rise that pops up out of nowhere you're kind of like so.

Is It good because we're seeing the growth and development of Tel Aviv or is it bad because it's then pushing the, residents out and then calling the neighborhood cool the, answer there. Isn't one. But. There's a lot of construction happening. Here's. My thing street art so important, it's the most direct, to source straight. To consumer, way of learning about a place because it's not like the government is paying. These. People to put up messages, they're. Paying a Tourism, Board to promote a certain message this is the best way to learn about the. People living here and what, they think about the situation and I've seen this so far. Okay. I want. To believe that one day the world will become better so, without israel's. Indigenous, vote don't, kill. Stay strong kids you'll be out soon I have an idea of who they could be talking about if, you are coming here please take the Hebrew streetwise, tour cuz I'm sure I'm sure I'm missing 85%. Because I don't speak Hebrew I'm missing the most pure wording, you, know you can ever express yourself like you can in your native language what. Do you love about tel-aviv. Okay. To be like it's weird as you want you know because it's not like the rest of Israel. How. There's. So much freedom and gayness. In. Other cities it's not as accepted, right it's. Like way scarier to, be gay in other cities like here as well like it's not that safe you know I went with my girlfriends. And like they, have their hand and then this guy and, this woman were like dude it's disgusting, man what, do you say to them. Go. To the army the military. And I will go next there how, do you feel about that do you want to go do you not want to go. Okay. I think that. There's some good in it that it's like, commendatory, yeah that you have to go but like also, I don't like how many. Times it makes us all and like I don't like the occupation, and all that like I'm really against that and I want yeah, I want my country to make better. That's sweet now I'm sure a lot of people that makes a lot of people happy or do a lot of people share that view. You. Want Israel to do good yeah, yeah. Of course I think so I think all the people sharing that view look, like we're all I feel like there's lots of desperation. And something like everyone is just so exhausted, from the whole thing they. Don't trust anyone, and we don't like talk about everything and another thing is that I don't even speak their language like I don't speak Arabic and that's crazy like, a leave 15, minutes from my kasidiaris everyone, speaks Arabic yeah I don't know no misunderstandings. Just, based on the language itself oh well, thank you this, is my smoothie, I'm obsessed with these I was, getting this smoothie and then she stopped me and I wanted to talk to her I feel. Like there's so many people like you I keep meeting them you're, the kind of person that I would meet abroad that made me want to come here I kept. Meeting like these cool open-minded. Curious, like progressive, people and that made me want to come here and then Here. I am with my smoothie. I nee, medibang, litt English. These. Mangoes. Could. I get some mangoes. No. No not not a lot not a lot. I'm. On, a diet yes I. Just. Had shakshuka all right I just, ate shakshuka. Are. These half, yes, there's, a half cent yes yes why, do you have a cent. Shake. It but, what. Things. Cost half a shekel. Here. From Los Angeles I have one more day in Tel Aviv until, I go to Jerusalem, what. Else should I do. Jaffa. Shakshuka the. Markets, a beach drinking. But, I've been drinking this whole trip but no Arak, I haven't tried a rock yet you, sure you. Have some yeah, get a bottle and go home and get drunk. Thank. You see. You in Los Angeles.

This. Was, a dollar 87, this at Trader Joe's would, be three, dollars and 87 okay so they have these kiosks all around Tel Aviv where they sell fruits and shakes let's go get one. Any meta bear Anglet. It's. Okay what does all this say, are these the special deals that I'll never know about. Yeah. This. Is a dollar sixty what do you know I made it to another markets, now we're at Carmel market I wasn't, even planning to do this and I was walking to Bauhaus, architecture centre, aka. The white city after, World, War Two the lot of Jews moved here and they, brought along with them style of architecture that, was famous in Germany yeah, no I'm trying to find it but I still stumbled, upon this I, don't. Think I have it in me. What's, your name, where. Do you hang out in Tel Aviv. Wait. Removing tables. Too bad tonight's my last night. Yeah. I've. Been here for five days. Thank, You. Say. Thank you if I'm thanking a woman which. Version, do I use do you I use the man because I'm a man or the woman because she's a woman. Everyone. In Europe does it this way you roll your own cigarettes, or whatever yeah, in the States nobody, does that. Okay. What were you saying first about the military. You're. A girl, probably you're trying, to get wasted -. Aaron is relevant, should be coming to mother and, fame. Or bigger, salary. What. Do you what do you think about that. Yeah. Do you think, yeah the youth is more accepting, and more tolerant. And just more open. My. Friends, friends. He found out about it through another friend. That's, how you do it man. Dear. Israel, you. Are. Interesting. No, no you are interesting, for. Reasons other than politics, you're a holy land and I. Thank God for all these cuties, and. Look I've drank, your SOT love and I've eaten, your shakshuka. Man. That sounds kind of gross well. I mean I did have that one guy over from our off the gay app here you know what nevermind I think I also managed to come to Israel the one week it decided to reign which then, stressed, me out having, to film an entire video in a day and a half or something I loved about being in a country where I can't even read a freaking, menu or the street, sign yeah you definitely feel like you're in a foreign place I mean if you think about it if you go to Germany you don't speak German, you, can still figure out what the signs say if you go to Israel and you don't speak Hebrew, the. Street signs just, look like hieroglyphics, anyways. So. The, markets didn't really rub me the right way although I am wearing some jeans from the jaffa market right now and no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't get down the conversion, rate between the shekel and the dollar you know what I had a great time in Tel Aviv I'm gonna look out onto this beach and enjoy. My last few moments here I'm on my way to Jerusalem, in the West Bank those videos are gonna have even more to cover. They. Might be even longer by the way I wonder if our YouTube audience will, like these longer videos guess. We'll see in, any case I had a good time I have three tinder dates going to the same bar but that doesn't mean that I'm gonna talk to any of them damn. Georgia had to be expanding as a ranking see new countries and China mention new cultures had to go to Shanghai I. Supported. This is the first time since I arrived misery, where, I've seen the Sun. There. Is a God dangit. I can't make those jokes here, you're, doing a vlog in Tel, Aviv yeah but it hasn't been exciting. Yet no. I mean generally, no no the mother vlog hasn't been exciting there Tel Aviv has been exciting but I haven't been perhaps frugal. Used. To be exactly, it's the lighting blame it on the lighting I won't. Put your faces in it so. All the best oh they take you there's, something specific about their look here, in Israel that, I'm like. Beautiful. Let's, go see. I gotta go this way wait, I gotta grab the camera first okay.

*”come to brasil!”* lmao

Love the longer video. Happy to wait for them too

LOVED THIS. I received a negative reaction when I was about to go to Istanbul Turkey because of the government there ect. People were even telling me to cancel my trip! But I had the exact same thought, if I don't go to any countries with political conflict I can't even return home! So I went to Istanbul and had one of the most amazing trips of my life. Gotta do what you gotta do, ya know? Keep on keeping on.

23 minutes of pure fun and professionalism

I wish I could be fearless like Damon and Jo are

can't wait to see you going to Russia

I loveee thissss

Agora que o canal cresceu às custas de vídeos em português, estão deixando o conteúdo pra brasileiros limitado

Hahah Damon it’s not “ani medaber anglit”it’s “ ATA merdaber anglit” when you want to ask someone if he or she speaks English

Tel-Aviv do not represent Israel at all. You should have went to other cities. The two girls you talk to are so different from the average Israelis. Majority of Israelis are right wing conservatives and more religious. It's sad that you went all this way to Israel to see a false outlook on Israel. Israelis are completely different from these two girls.

Sahlav sounds alot like sahlab

초강△력 비;ㅇr그라 파□는곳 sayamalsl、com ♪.@

Yes to longer videos! ♥️

YES, DAMON, I LOVE THESE LONGER VIDEOS. Yes to the more long and in- depth content. This was so wonderful!! Can't wait for the next one!

Please go to China!

this video was amazing, changed my entire perspective on israel

damon is so cute wtf

I can be having the WORST day, and as soon as I watch DamonAndJo I immediately start feeling better

this is definitely one of my favorite videos so far. Thank you, Damon!

Is he gay?

The part where you met the girl with pink hair and she started to list cool places to go gave me extreme 'shut up and go' vibes, does that make sense????

DAMON!!!!! Favorite video by far!!! And extremely important. Thank you for what you do. Can’t wait to see the next episodes. Blessings on blessings!!

so cute when Damon would ask to see if they know english, but he was actually just walking into shops and announcing "I speak english" hahahaha

Façam mais videos em português pf ):

Just YES to this video

This is my favorite video of you guys. And the girl with the pink hair had so many quotes that should be framed like : "The American dream is to get out of America".

the girl with pink hair is so awesome I could talk to her hours

Omg when i travel alone people wanna talk but i am so awkward i just run away hahahaha

I am here for this! Give me more!!! Yes to longer videos. Lol why did I want to jump up and dance during the solo dance party

Israel is sooooo beautiful. I went a couple years ago. Ceasaria was def my fav sight to see. Also the sea of gallilee was amazing

Such a handsome guy

I like these longer videos, especially if theyre this thoughtful

Gili is dope as fuck

to wash your hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless is to side with the powerful. unsubscribed im afraid. this is tantamount to travelling to south africa during apartheid. do better damon.

Love Damon and Jo, but it's sad that this was so one sided even for a non political video

Yeeeeeah, longer videos!!! Apoiado Damon (e Jo, é claro, que vai ler isto também :D ) Amamos vocês, love ya, beijos!

Yes! keep these long videos comin please

Damn this video was fucking amazing. Bout to hop off to Europe on my student budget loool

Absolutely love everything about this!!!

I love this long videos

It didnt even feel like 22 mins tho this was a good vid!

You guys should visit Albania. It’s a great country and the language is very interesting.

Really amazing. Keep em coming.

“Probably not the best place to throw around the word Jesus” looool

he definitely said 100 lol

I love how much of a foodie you are, Damon!

THAT PINK HAIRED LADY IS SO AWESOME

Love the longer videos and the style!!! ❤

I don't think they are together anymore like they used to be

i've been watching you guys for years but i've never commented on a video. i found this one especially appealing though. i am 21 years old and from the chicago and for the first time this past summer i went to israel on birthright. i identify as a practicing reform jew and consider myself to be very liberal. so i find the conflict to be really confusing as someone who is jewish and finds peace in knowing that there is a jewish state, but also as a liberal american. that being said, i love the way you were enthusiastic about not only the people of israel, but the culture-- and also showed that the people of israel are also very open minded themselves. after birthright i extended my trip for 5 days myself and stayed in yafo as well! ALSO last week i arrived in berlin for my first time ever in europe where i'll be studying abroad for the next 4 months, so hearing that girl in the cafe saying that she wished israel was more progressive like berlin made me all the more excited to be here!

I didn't even realise the video was this long untill you said it

Thank you so much for this video. My family is Israeli and I haven't been able to go there for a few years now and it's just so nice to see everything and to hear my people in a way that is not negative. I am totally against the Israeli army and their treatment of Palestinian people, but I still love this country and I've missed it so much.

Do the Carnival with Jo in Brazil this year!

So.. When you comming to Croatia, Zagreb is still waiting to be explored!!@!

Are you brasilian?

Damon, por favooor, continueee. Adorei esse vídeo e nao, nao tem problema em fazê-los longos.

Love it! Its always interesting to see how others see your country. Lots of love from tel aviv

Hears he's not a cat guy, stops the video, makes a comment, sends comment, closes the video.

I recognize that greek accent anywhere hahah

love love love the longer videos

I know that the people dont represent the government. But Zionists do not deserve your money.

At 16:00 you said “I speak English” instead of do you speak english. You should say “atah” instead of “ani”

Omg you pregaming with yourself is the kind of mood I want for 2019

When ur in Jerusalem find a place called Goa they have 5₪ shots and they have a drink called tubi which is illegal in the states

This video went by so fast

To anyone who was ever curious about Israel, rad articles online and really wants to see Israel for themselves, I truly recommend that you visit our small yet very diverse and unique society. Tel Aviv has its own unique perspective on Israel and I think that anyone who comes to visit needs to see Jerusalem, needs to visit settlements to get familiar with the people, to meet Arab Israelis, meet Christian Israelis and Muslims who serve in the army. Reach out and see Israel. There's so much to see and learn. So much beyond headlines and social media.

OMG Cant believe you were here in Israel!

Btw we actually have crazy gay parties you just need to know where haha

??= cornflour lol

Longer videos (more time with internet friends) research and facts, (learning!) and being upfront about all apects of going to a place. Keep these coming

I love the new longer videos

lmao gay palestinians sure don't feel like tel aviv is a safe haven for queers

There's Tin Tin at 20:36?! I didn't know Damon are now friends with him

you should learn Latin, it really helps with other languages (which you can already speak lol) but its still a very nice language with a lot of culture

Loved this so much !

I’m Palestinian and we eat Sahlab. It’s made out of milk, cornstarch, vanilla, and cinnamon. It literally just taste like delicious warm horchata pudding (if made right).

Wow I'm whipped over this doc style content!!!!!my heart melted everytime u found a nice person!!!!

Welp, now I have a massive crush on Gili

Just a note on the language aspect- the majority of the foods if not all is based largely on Palestinian- Arabic recipes and the same applies to their names. (E.g. sahlab , muhalabiya, etc.) just a thought mentioning that they’re words originating from the Arabic language rather than Hebrew or they are derived from the Arabic language. Note some of them are also from Turkish! It’d be interesting to hopefully see in the next video more on how people live in a country with two official languages. Great videos!! x

Just out here watching the video for the second time.

I think about going to Israel and THEN DAMON GOES AND IM LIKE AHAHAHSGSGSGSGS

Yes!!! This is the type of content I've been waiting for. So hyped for these longer and more in-depth videos. LOVE YOU GUYS

You killed it, dude! Dope video/editing. Nice job.

Amazing in every sense and yes will watch longer videos

Ohhh I cannot waaait for the next one!!!

Damon hung out in the Little Prince the one day I was not there ofc...

I want Damon's pregame playlist. Is it on spotify??

Loved this

YES! i love the longer videos please keep doing them.

UGHHHH I LOVE ISRAEL SO MUCH! What beautiful place! The people there are amazing and so nice. Also, most people in Israel do speak English, but I love how you were able to confidently ask them if they spoke english in Hebrew! Way better than what I would be able to do! Hope you enjoyed it and have fun in the holy city!!!

The purple girl you met in the coffee shop is very wrong, as a combat soldier in the IDF I can tell you it's the most important thing in the country, We wouldn't have a country without it We are surrounded by people that hate us and want to kick us out from the country. And girls have very important "jobs" and things to do in the army, if you have time I wish we can meet up and I will explain more to you

yeeesssss we like looong videos

If you're still in Tel Aviv go to the Little Prince on King George St, it's a cozy cafe in a bookstore. if you see a cute server with good fashion tell him I have a crush on him lol

Ahhh I didnt watch the rest of the video! Awesome!

love love love. I have to travel more. 2019 goal for sure because of you.

Didn't even feel like 20min bcs your guys' content is gold!

I was waiting for the war to be over to visit israel, but that is no longer a factor. You guys are making the world a better place with each video you make. Love from portugal

Wow, perfect timing; I'm in Israel / Palestine solo traveling right now!! Question: did you go to the West Bank at all? I'd love to get acquainted with the culture and people but to be honest I've heard mixed things about traveling as a tourist in PA territories, problems with checkpoints and passports, etc

yes longer vids yes i like this yes

Liked your video. I think you should come during summer and explore the city more. It seems like you'd missed alot

Your editing is amazing

Thank you so much for this video from an Israeli.❤️ I really appreciate people that come here to visit despite everything the media tells them about us. I hope you had a great time here!!

This makes me want shut up and go to Israel so badddddddd!

Love the longer video!

Loved this. Thank you!

You keep translating you saying “I speak English” as “do you speak English?”

yesssss here for the long videos

I'm living for Damon's solo kitchen dance party. Such a mood

Loved the video ♥️

Wow I luuuurrved this. It's so interesting to hear the views of real life Israelis and how they really feel about their country and their government. Also loved the longer video!! Love from New Zealand xxxx

I love this video but what is that noise at 17:34 lollll

Aghh now I want shakshuka so much

Also GOD YES I love longer videos I am so happy to watch them all

looking for vegan travel buddy

LOOOOOOVE IT!!!!

5:53... he meant corn flour

I like Gili.

What is the mentality you equip when on solo trips? Especially for those first few solo trips of yours...

that laugh tho 17:35 idk it's a weird sound lol

How do all these young YouTubers travel the world like this? Are they all trust fund babies or bankrolled by their parents?

“The American Dream is to get out of America” it’s like she read all our minds sis I-

8:15 eu quero sua playlist =p

(the answer is it's bad)

Fascinating video, can’t wait to see the rest of the series!! Love the longer format too. By the way, just wanted to thank you guys for inspiring me to shut up and go - je suis une irlandaise mais j’habite en France maintenant, je suis assistant d’anglais ici et j’espére que je peut améliorer mon français! Merci encore pour l’inspiration❤️

Wait this homie gay

"there's something specific about their look here in Israel, that i'm like *long pause*....BEAUTIFUL" lmfao me too damon

I LOVE this episode

Welcome to Israel Damon!! There's lots of vegan/ vegetarian restaurants in Tel Aviv! You came for the right place! And have fun!!

What language was the fan speaking? Was it Romanian? I speak Spanish and I understand most of what he said.

LOVED.THIS.VIDEO!!

First video I watch from this channel and I most say it was amazing. You kept the video funny and interesting, I didn't realized it was 20 minutes long.

Poxa nenhum defeito nesse video

Apaixonada pela menina de cabelo rosa! (Por você também, Damon

You guys should come to Cape Town . You’d love it

i loooooove the longer videos

I really like this vlog , it reflects really well Israel

this is excellent

Really loved the style and extended length of this vid! I hope to see more :)

lately i was in a lecture called "flying - a cultural enrichment or a climate killer" which made me really rethink my opinion about travelling in general. As everybody knows flying is extremely bad for our planet as carbondioxide gets emitted in a very crucial height. But of course I want to travel and see cultures and countries outside of Europe which I haven`t so far. But this lecture made me think about if this is selfish. Only 10% of the world can even afford to fly. And can we be as those 10% be so selfish and say "oh well i don`t care about climate change and next generation and stuff because i want to see the world". I´m not blaming anyone here. I flew too. But maybe think about it: I can also see very different cultures and countries in Europe as well. Not many Europeans visit eastern european countries sadly. I think more Germans have been to Thailand than to Romania. I know it`s different in the states because other cultures and countries are often way too far away to be reached without a car or train. But just keep it in mind. and take the train or car when you can:)

im here for these lengthy videos!!! keep em coming!!!!!!!

i loved this mini doc i hope to see more content like this

sympa le documentaire! et bonne année! ;-)

“The american dream is to get out of America” LOL i loved that girl!

YES I LOVE LONGER VIDEOS

5:55 cornflour and rose water

Does anyone knows what song Damon is playing at 8:15??? It sounds to familiar to me and I can't seem to find it! Help! It's stuck in my head for days!

I live in Israel 5 years already and this country is full of love, laugh, passion and good food:) also there is also some balagan (mess) going on but it's all part of the package

Salut! Tu cherche des recettes facile prepare,alors tu es le bienvenue dans mon canal❤️

20+ MINUTES!?!!! YES, I'M HERE FOR THIS CONTENT!

I AM HERE FOR LONGER VIDEOS!

Yes I love the longer videos

Even though I had to watch in like 3 different sittings, I really appreciated these longer form videos! Especially with topics like these, allows more time for substance!

I loved and enjoyed this video so much. More long videos please

YES WE WILLL!! LONGER VIDEOS!!!!

Yes, longer videos for sure!!

Loved it! Love you guys you're such an inspiration to me ❤️

19:13 BRUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

We love these long videos

15:56 I DIED

I loooove this video!

This is one of your best videos yet

Please read before watching: Some Israelis especially the older ones may look intimidating because of their direct language and brash comments. In Israeli culture, it`s called "Stalbet" To take a piss on someone. We got it from the Brits. So just take it lightly and you`ll be fine.

Wow!! I loved this vlog! Tel Aviv was never even on my radar. Now it is!!

I LOVE THESE LONGER VIDEOS

I'm too jealous, I've wanted to go to Israel for so long.

You kept asking people literally: do I speak English? , during the whole video. Dying from the confusion on people’s faces at first seconds when they hear it

Omg! That girl was so right! We are lazy! Americans!!! Love you!

Where is the real Jewish food?? all you had is Arabic food, i want to see the Jewish food.

Israel says that shakshuka is an Israeli dish it's not true it's an Arab dish

Absolutely loooove Israel!!! You depicted the vibe in Tel Aviv beautiful!

That didn’t feel like 23 mins! Keep it up

Shalom Israel

Gili is sooo cute!!!!

Now! That’s a fucking travel vlog!

IM SCREAMING because i just bought that shirt yesterday :DD 7:36

I just found y’all from Asis. Nice videos!

Hey Damon and Jo! I have been watching your channel for awhile and I got to say, I LOVE you guys! You guys are so talented and amazing and gahhhh. I have just one thing that's been bugging me. I don't know how to travel as an introverted person. Can you guys make a video specifically for traveling as an introverted person? I think both of you are extroverted and really cool, but I just don't know how I can build the confidence to randomly talk to people for help and make connections. I know there are other videos that explain how to travel as an introverted person, but they just don't seem real enough. (also, I would just love to hear your thoughts and comments). Ciao!

I like your intention behind the vid and travel in general. Just wanted to say: please acknowledge your privilege (internally, if not already doing so). Sure, going into an occupying territory to learn about "both sides" (i hate this analogy as 2 sides are seen as equal despite this being occupying vs occupied) is arguably open-minded, but understand that as a White person your privilege is enabling you to seek info through the lens of the occupying power. You wouldn't be in apartheid South Africa, funding their regime, talking to Dutch colonisers about Black people, but then weigh the pros and cons of it. And you're granted the privilege to fund and explore a land that only enables you to exisr their safely because of your Whiteness. It's not fair or ethical. I genuinely feel you have the best of intentions, but this seems quite White privilege-y/socially unaware thing to do. Genuinely no hate. But i feel you wouldve thought twice about this trip if you were a visible minority.

I love these longer videos!

Do not visit Syria

Love how respectful your being with such a controversial topic

Loool I love these longer videos! And idk why but I was kind of scared for you. Be safe out there!

I loooooved this video!!! I love seeing the world through your perspective Damon (and Jo), more long videos like this please

Great video Damon! Great editing, and you brought up a deep issue in a light way: the never ending war and mandatory military service. I’m Very happy to hear that the youth has a mind of their own, and they do not justify everything on religion. Grew up in Brazil with Jewish bffs. As you might know, over there we are all mixed up, race and religion. You got me “inside” Israel, it was awesome. Thank you.

#apartheidIsrael

the scenery is so beautiful, shame its all stolen land

I love this kind of content and I hope the next videos keep giving us a more in depth look on what society really looks like.

Send your brother a jacket FROM A DIFF COUNTRY MA BROTHER LOL miss ya!

Weak

Love these

Omg I love you guys so much you really inspire me to keep on learning languages and I hope to become as bilingual as you guys. I’m Israeli so if you want a few tips on places or maybe even join for a Jewish traditional meal in friday you are welcome and can contact me

Shlomit Hochner Shalom

llllol

So Casey Neistat...

I'm lebanese-canadian and i'd love to visit israel. you've captured it so beautifully and i always get surprised by the people in israel who just want peace. I guess growing up knowing about the constant and fatal conflict of our neighbours makes you wonder if the stronger, more opposing side wants a peaceful end to the segregation. i'm sure i'll get to travel there soon enough, however i don't know how they take kindly to other arabs visiting the country for simply tourism.

cornflour

2:39 hunny literally no one cares if you say Jesus it's not like taboo or something we say it all the time

I love this format! Yesss moreee

I've lost track of you guys for a while but I had to write and say I LOVED this video. Your conversations with the locals really add a lot to getting the feel of the place. Pictures are good for atmosphere but to get the true vibe of a place hearing the voices of her people, that is the BEST. Thanks!

I, like everyone else it seems, love the longer videos! Then again, I love basically everything you guys do. Much love

Yes we love long videos

Wait.. at 16:35 isnt that the musician celebrity Shalom Shabati?

I was sooo scared for you

I am an teenage Israeli girl, Jewish and religious, and soon I will be joining the army! I am so happy and grateful for that and I can't wait to serve my country !!

I was literally crying when the girl at 15:00 spoke bcs i share the same point of view and although in my country every one doesn't like jews and Israelis and i m not allowed to visit it. I feel so sad and upset of those fucking politicians

Appreciated this video more than any other in the past.

The pink-haired girl just confirmed what i always thought about Israel's mindset "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's". Definitely down to see more of this format

Damn tchektchouka is my go to meal.. it's from Maghreb though

Damon, i love you, really. But THOSE SUNGLASSES MUST GO 0:56

If both sides want to enjoy their life in peace, then why can’t Isreali’s do it on their BY THE UN DEFINED side of the border.

which border is that exactly?

Why I didn’t see you

the classic "come to brazil" lol

This long format is really nice. The rythm is a bit slower and deeper. Like it!

It’d be so awesome if you and Jo came to Riyadh, SA. I’m from America but I live here. I’d love to show you guys how wrong of an image people have of this place around the world.

Cornflower = corn starch

Haha I just found you guys and I'm in love. Love your style, love your open-mindedness, and that you show your interaction with locals. Definitely going to continue watching you guys!

Please visite istanbul :(

israel is a wonderful place filled with amazing people. it is a horrible shame what its government will do, as well as what the palestine government is capable of. but i love that country, regardless.

This video makes me jealous beyond words. Soon I'll visit Israel myself. Also I'm excited about the upcoming videos dealing with more of the political stuff. I've been reading tons of stuff about Israel and the development of the conflict with the Palestinians and other surrounding countries like Iran for example. I personally think, the existence of Israel is an invaluable chance for so many people living in the Middle East to escape oppression. Also the historical necessity for a Jewish state to exist is in my opinion unnegotiable. Israel is the only nation on earth that has succeeded to protect Jewish lives from prosecution and death for 70 consecutive years. That alone makes Israel indispensable.

You are very funny!!! LOL.

sadly you haven't been to a real party in TLV. next time check out atraf.co.il for parties. then you'll see all those hot shirtless guys...

This was awesome! So interesting and insightful. Thanks Damon!

peep the alma mater sweater in the back at 17:59

wow..makes friends so easy loool

The people were really charming !

The dude was saying that thing was made from cornflour haha. Great video though, gained a new subscriber :)

Why does everyone who lives in L.A think, talk and act the same.

Omg i spit she said the american dream is to get out of america gurl how u KNO WHO spillt tea

Good Luck in North Korea!

Loved it so much. Keep doing those

Young israelis and young palestinians are pretty woke and get that this whole conflict is fucked. The people in power just don't want a resolution, they want to win.

"the American dream is to get out of America," that's the absolute truth.

I had no idea Israel was so cool!

Ameei, e n me importo com vídeos longos.

*I honestly love this longer format so much, and I’ve always wanted to visit Israel but these videos are definitely making me want to even more. Great documentary Damon* :)

*I live for the bartering clips in D + J videos man*

Why can’t they just share the land? Everyone would live in peace then

The day Damon and Jo break apart, I'm going to drown in my own tears

i would love to solo travel but school is really taking my time up and its really hard for me to find cheap flights

Do you keep a travel diary/ a diary in general? If so, how do you start it, get inspired to write in it and what do you even document in it?

everytime i start to be content with my nice little life in nyc, yall post a video that makes me wanna drop out of uni and backpack again!

I love this video!!!! and by the way, when u ate the sahlav, they meant to say cornstarch, in Israel we call it cornflour haha

I am so excited to see you west bank content❤️

The government do not always represent the consensus or fully reflect its people and population... Love it, so true. Let's travel, let's have fun, let's converse and learn

I have to add that I am a lesbian and live in Jerusalem and I love it, and have never felt any problems being open and out.

Hi! thank you for your video ! If you're interested by the Middle East, another city you should absolutely visit is Beirut, Lebanon! Open minded (and gay friendly) people, party everytime and very pride of their arab culture :)

that girl was literally the cutest omg we need more people like that!!!

shakshuka is not Israeli --"

You are not serving your country. You are making dumb people more powerfull and rich while ruining the life of a palestinian teenage girl.

But we say Charmilla.

I like your intention behind the vid and travel in general. Just wanted to say: please acknowledge your privilege (internally, if not already doing so).
