AMS

Just came from there - a week total including Shabbos with a baby. Portuguese Synagogue highly recommended for shabbos. There is a Chabad with meals but we bought takeout and ate in our room.

Plenty to do, nice city, food etc. Also has potential to do day trips to other cities/overnights (did Haarlem, would have done Haag but best day for us had bad weather there, could have done Antwerp but with our slow travel pace with a baby, only really would have been worth it if we overnighted there.)

Got a destination in mind?

Can do this in Los Angeles. How big of a house you looking for?

Heading to SA iyh in July/Aug

As of now will be spending first Shabbos in JNB
and second Shabbos in Capetown

Does it make sense to stay for an additional Shabbos in Capetown? And then spend the day Monday in IST 13hr stopover on way back

Any other suggestions where to stop on way back, for Shabbos?

Heading to TLV.
