You are expected to live as cheaply as is possible while remaining safe. This means that you will be looking for hostels and often eating from grocery stores rather than in restaurants. You should talk with your advisor or with students who know the areas you will visit to determine the best means of finding lodging. In preparing your budget, you should have specific lodging in mind, although you need not stay at the places you use for cost estimating. However, knowing where you will stay when you first land at your destination is required.
