She’s Israeli, I’m french. It might already sound funny but that’s the best part of our story. Gal and I met in Tel Aviv, on Rothschild Avenue. Her name means wave in Hebrew, and I love the sea (I’m also surfing). The first steps we made together were on a Carver, the skateboard I arrived with when we met, on our first date. If you can’t already see the link between us I can’t help you. Putting words on the woman she is might be a bit complicated but I’ll do my best and introduce her first to be gallant (did I mention I’m french?).
All you need is love and a passport.
Gal dreams all the time and I can see it in her eyes. We’re both 21 and living in Israel. She loves to travel, to share with others and to discover new things. I’m always impressed by the way she manages to see things that others don’t. The most incredible thing about her is how she looks at what’s around her. Besides our activities and Instagram where she daily runs a community of more than 30.000 followers, Gal works in a High-tech company next to Tel Aviv and loves going to the beach, training, sleeping or to take pictures of food she’s not going to eat. And that’s why I love her.
What about me? My name’s Reouven, I was born and raised in Paris, I moved to Israel two years ago, after several trips and experiences. I’ve been at the head of several projects in France, mainly in Fashion design and digital where I ran several websites and magazines dedicated to Men & Lifestyle. I’m basically trying to fulfill my dreams every single day to live the life I want to. I believe that there’s no limit to imagination. I have a creative mind and I’m always ready to discover new things.
A few months ago, Gal and I started to stick pictures of our story, our moments, in a grey notebook I had for a few years. I bought it in Paris and never knew what to put inside or what I could use it for until I met her. It would be the album of our story. When we understood that we had to start this project together, The Grey Album was a kind of evidence.
We imagined The Grey Album as the best way to share with you our travel adventures by writing about experiences, hotels, and places in Israel and around the world. Discover the best through our eyes.
