Southeast Asia!


4 Days in Israel – just enough time to unpack and adjust to the time difference.  Now, it’s time to repack and prepare for Round 2 of jetlag.  Israel is +7 hours ahead of the USA and most of SE Asia is +12.

I spent most of yesterday trying to figure out what to pack.  Since I’ll be carrying everything on my back, the objective is light & multipurpose.

Clothing was simple: a few shirts, one sweater, one swimsuit, pants, a beach dress, and enough socks to last.  Electronics were a little more difficult.  Which camera: light, inexpensive point & shoot or magical yet bulky DSLR?  Do I bring something to connect to the internet in case I  find wi-fi?  In the end: light & multipurpose – point & shoot camera, ipod touch for music, internet where possible, and the occasional game of words with friends.  In researching traveling with electronics, I came across the following helpful article “28 Tips for Traveling with a Laptop and SLR.”

Off to the airport!
