    Sounds very much like “gadgets” we take with us too… Macbook Air 11″ is exactly what we have opted for too and it is incredibly light 🙂
    Hadn’t heard of the Mi-FI but liking the idea!

    I’ve never heard of a Mi-Fi before! I’ll have to check that out, looks like it would be one of those things that once I use, I’ll wonder how I survived so long without it.

    Also, I second your MacBook Air 11″ recommendation. I’ve had mine for a few months now and I’m still surprised by how light it is every time I pick it up!

    You forgot one Jo!! A waterproof camera! I would never leave home without one on a trip now! There are many on the market now and some are much better than others..I had an old Pentax optio, then got the new one..and it was not the best, had to send it back to be repaired one year after having it. I have a Olympus tough and it is SHITE! Pics are good, but it’s response time is SLLLOOOOW and battery power sucks. I am going for the Cannon one next as it is affordable now. It was around 400$ when it first came out but I have seen them as low as 200$ now. Waterproof cameras are great for super humid climates, rain, and beaches. Love them! I’ll let you know how the Cannon underwater one is in relation to the others later!

    Some really great advice here, thanks for sharing. One quick question though – do you use a case for your Macbook, like the tight-fitting, clip on variety, or just a sleeve? Any thoughts on the use of cases?

    I’m kinda in love with my MacBook Air 11″ too, so I ain’t judging! I like your rationalisation of packing this much stuff (which I’m also not judging – our list is similar!) by comparing it to a full supply of office furniture! Very nicely done.

    I love “list” articles! Thanks for the insight on the camera and smart phone. We need to upgrade both of ours and are making a list of options.

    Jo, I think you have a well thought out list and great reasons. I like my heavy camera and lens, so my stuff probably weighs a lot more than yours. Good list.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
