Welcome! In this blog I trace my journey to becoming a licensed tour guide in Israel. I write about places I go, things I learn, the Israeli tourism industry, and anything else that seems appropriate!

Before you explore some of the other “about” topics, I just wanted to say that all photos on this site are by me, except where otherwise noted. Virtually all were taken in Israel, as well.

That being said, answers to a few questions:

Who is Fun Joel?

How Did You Become Fun Joel?

What Do You Mean by “Fun Joel’s Israel?”
