When you travel to Israel you will see some of the world’s oldest cities, nestled in the seat of civilization. But there are certain things you’ll want to bring with you.
First off you will want an international cell phone rental. That will allow you to stay in contact with those you meet as well as call family and friends. If you choose an upgraded version of cell phone rentals, such as an unlimited Blackberry, you will also be able to have constant internet access, which is much easier than hoping for Wi-Fi or waiting around in an internet cafe to do research.
The Kensington Travel Plug Adapter comes with a built-in USB charger so you can charge more than one electronic item at once. You have a phone, but you also need a computer and a camera. The computer should be the smallest and cheapest one you can find. That will save you space and the difficulty of lugging around extra weight. If you’re journaling or writing, regularly save all of your documents on Google docs. A small Lumix camera is the best way to shoot. The FZ-40 is pricier than other models, but it shoots like a camera in a much higher price range.
If you travel to Israel and go from one city to another city, it’s not always worth it to save on a budget airline. Consider the layovers and ask yourself if a twelve hour delay in your plans is really worth saving the hundred dollars. Sometimes you pay for peace of mind and less stress so that when you arrive at your destination you feel ready to explore.
