I spent much of my time staying with family in Sin El Fil which is a suburb of Beirut and not overly photographic. However, Ain Saadeh where other parts of her family lived in the mountains had stunning views down to Beirut and the water. I saw many of the tourist destinations that a first timer would see including Byblos aka Jbeil (the oldest continually inhabited city in the world) which was an incredible city on the Mediterranean (video is from a restaurant on the water), the Cedars of Lebanon (about 2.5 hour drive into the mountains), downtown Beirut, Raché (rock formation just off the shore of Beirut), Lazy-B beach, Ksara winery, (started by monks), Jeita grotto (world class rock formations), and Mounir which has the most incredible mezzé in the world. Next time I'm in Lebanon I want to get to Balbaak. Enjoy some of the photos!
