This is a post I wanted to write since long. Traveling and photography: perfectly complementary. Let me start with some personal experience. Last year I was abroad for three months, traveling South-East Asia on my own. You know, the backpacker thing? My journey went mainly through Laos and Cambodia. I was alone, on a budget (i.e. I wanted the trip to last as long as possible), and I was traveling light. That’s to say that I had a light backpack, just 9 kg (~19.8 lbs). So, the biggest question to solve while organizing the whole thing was if I should carry a DSRL (and lenses) with me, or if I should not. Not as trivial as I thought it was.
