About to travel to Israel for a couple weeks from the United States, multi-question post!
In a few months (beginning of October) I will be traveling with a group of 20-30 people to visit Israel for about 2 weeks. A few things I'm starting to think about, would love input and feedback from my fellow Wooters =)
A- I'm very hesitant about taking any expensive electronics with me, even though they are sure to make travel time much easier to bear. I plan to take my iPad, iPhone, and 3DS, but leave my beloved Macbook Pro at home. Does anyone have experience (good or bad) with using insurance for electronics while traveling? (My main concern is theft...)
B- I'm sure they'll go over this with us before we leave, but I have no idea how much money I should have converted to Israeli currency... If it's anything like when I've been in southern countries (Mexico & Honduras), they'll take a dollar as quick as they will their own currency, but I have no idea if this is as true out there.
C- Would love to hear tips from the experienced about how to handle jet lag, culture differences, etc
