New to this forum, and advice needed!
My boyfriend and I are going to Israel in a couple of weeks (21st of April) to do Kibbutz work for about two months. We should be arrriving at Ben Gurion at about 1930 on the Sunday, and intend to stay in hostels for the days before we're sent to a kibbutz.
-Is taking a train from Ben Gurion into Tel Aviv on a Sunday evening an easy thing if you're unfamiliar with the airport/train station? Or would a taxi be better? Neither of us drive.
-My main worry is communicating, as I know only very little Hebrew and a small amount of Arabic, and I've yet to find out how widely spoken English is over there. (Boyfriend knows more Hebrew, though).
- I've gathered that Tel Aviv is a relatively safe city compared to many others, but if anyone has any tips from personal experience, that I won't find in a book (ie about money and cashpoints/belongings and stuff) I'd be very grateful.
Sorry if that's a bit long; thanks for reading. :)
