In packing for the trip I started to think about how much baggage is “required” in the digital age. Digital Camera, PDA, Computer, cell phone and all supporting spiderweb of cords. We considered not bringing the laptop but decided it could double as a DVD player for the kids, and for that alone it would be worth its weight in gold.
More secure than using cafe computer, children’s games, movies, music
I plan to do a lot of reflecting and thinking and I prefer to capture these thoughts electronically. Games for kids, eBooks
Kids music, foreign language learning, audio books, Yoga, relaxation
We plan to backup pictures to the computer and USB memory stick. When we reach a location with Internet access the pictures will then be uploaded to Dropbox.
