This adventure is named a ‘Backpack to Jerusalem’ because it is a minimalist trip to the sacred historic lands of Jerusalem. No five star hotels or all-inclusive meals here, but a warm and friendly simple hostel and good nutrition. Lots of sites and places to visit, like you have never experienced before.
