Forget your nosy neighbour, the screaming baby behind you, and open window shining in front you, because B- Tourist has got your first class ticket with just a stretchy band. The B-tourist is made of a flexible fabric that fits over the upper section of plane chairs. Individuals can use it as a headrest, privacy shade, and shield… from the coughing and sneezing travellers on the plane (gross). Idan Noyberg, a developer of the product, explains: “We found that we can create a super sterile private space by covering a very small area around the passenger”.
So the next time your planning on travelling, and at a small expense, bring the B-Tourist for a first class experience while your stuck in the gross, claustrophobic, loud, and irritating business section.

Here are our favourite beaches….
Of course, the Tel Aviv beach, which stretches over 10km along the Mediterranean is a firm favorite. Divided into over ten individual beaches, each of Tel Aviv’s beaches has its own character and crowd, from the Tzur Beach in the far north of the city which is a favorite with locals and relatively quiet by urban standards, to the central stretch of beaches – Gordon, Frishman, Bograshov, and Dolphinarium Beaches which are always busy, to the Hilton Beach which attracts a gay crowd, or the beaches further south which attract hipsters and locals from Jaffa. Read more about the Tel Aviv Beach in our dedicated article.
Eilat’s Dolphin Beach is located within the Dolphin Reef in Eilat, famed for offering the opportunity to swim alongside dolphins. Pay an entry fee to enter the reef and you get access to a beach which is much quieter than most in the city. The beach has, of course food and drink facilities and relaxation can be taken to the next level with the attractions music-infused relaxation pools.

Earlier this month, approximately 3,000 people gathered in the Negev desert for this celebratory event, regardless of the Negev’s unbearable high temperatures.
Based on the Burning Man Festival held in Black Rock Desert of Nevada, Israel put its own spin on its first annual incarnation of the festival.
According to Huffington Post, “there were workshops in sculpture, drawing, and touch therapy. There was music and theater. At the “tent of heaven and hell,” participants were chosen at random for one of two fates: getting massages or doing chores.”
Ironically, sources explain that there was only one “hot” commodity at the festival, which was ice, to cool the celebrating individuals down. You could say this festival is one hot party!

Jerusalem has built its own beach within the refurbished First Train Station, Times of Israel reports. It includes “a 2,000-square-meter (21,500 square feet) space with its own surfing simulator, beach volleyball court and open beach showers.”
However, if you’re still into experiencing the real deal, for NIS 50, you can board the BeachBus which will take you straight to Tel Aviv’s Banana Beach.
Either way, getting to the beach from Jerusalem just got a lot easier!
