comment Are there any repercussions from having an Israeli stamp in my passport?
According to the German foreign ministry web site, you should now be able to enter Pakistan with an Israeli stamp, while this used to be a problem in the past. I would still try to double check before doing this.

Outside the US, nobody uses the term cellphone, so it should be clear we are talking about mobile phones here

Just because you know the language does not mean you are save from tourist traps. They exist in the similar way for tourists from the same country.

+1 for talking with the stuff in your hotel/hostel. They usually speak some English and know about 'local' places. Just make sure you tell them exactly what you want. Often they get commission for sending people to a restaurant or tour agency, so be careful.

I just been to some of these and I don't think you can stay in Bran or Peles.
