Gal Gadot arrived in Israel last week, nine months after her last visit, to celebrate New Year’s Eve with family and friends.
The Israeli actress landed at Ben-Gurion Airport on Wednesday with her husband and daughters. Within 24 hours, eagle-eyed paparazzi had already spotted the Rosh Ha’ayin native on the streets of Tel Aviv. On her first day in town, Gadot herself shared a video of the passing Israeli scenery on social media, with the words “All I need is this... ”


On Friday, Gadot shared a slide show of seven photos from her visit alongside the caption “Family. Friends. Nature. Rest. Shabbat Shalom.”
Israel Hayom reporter Eran Swissa reported that Gadot was spotted on Saturday evening meeting with news anchor Yonit Levi – and potentially arranging a rare Israeli TV interview for the international star.
According to Walla, Gadot will be in Israel for a short trip that includes celebrating New Year’s Eve on Monday evening.
Reporter Gil Mishali said Thursday that the actress will stay in Israel – including a trip to a bed and breakfast up North – until 2019, and will then travel to the Maldives to celebrate the 40th birthday of her friend Yael Goldman Pfeffer.
This vacation comes just after Gadot wrapped up filming for the sequel to Wonder Woman. On Sunday she posted photos from the shooting on Instagram along with a heartfelt thank you to the cast and crew and everyone who took part in the movie. “Words cannot describe this experience,” she wrote. “This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud... Thank you universe for this opportunity. I love this character.”
Gadot’s last visit to Israel was in March, when she celebrated Passover with family and friends.
