Packing

Ideally you want to remain under 15kg though 10 is better, my general rule is that if i can’t do 10 lifts with it with one arm then it is too heavy a great site for what to bring and not to bring is one bag.

Gadgets

Traveling with gadgets can be hard, not only because of there weight but it can be hard knowing what to take and how to keep it charged, when picking out gadgets be sure to reference this handy site for world electricity standards but keep in mind that developing countries don’t often follow the standards. As for what to bring I travel with the Cannon G9, a small gps device, 16 gb ipod nano and a very cheap cell phone.
