In order not to take over the other budget discussion going on now - I started a separate one - if you think they should be combined, I'll remove this one.
I'm helping my niece plan a trip to Israel. She is graduating college this spring and wants very much to come to Israel on her own - she is very much a loner and so group travel, no matter how enticing - or cheap e.g. Birthright, is not for her. She asked for my help since we've been to Israel before, but this is a completely different type of travel that I don't know much about
Any tips - we know she should be looking at hostels - but are there better ones? cheaper ones? ones she should avoid? Anything she needs to look out for as a young woman traveling alone?
All advice will be very welcome --- thanks very much.
