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!
