    I'm only going to list the odd things I have. I should mention that recently a friend cut her finger and I whipped out my antibiotic cream and bandaids. "My god, do you carry everything in there?" Pretty much.

    So, my photo stuff that you didn't list would be extra SD cards, one spare battery fully-charged, a lens pen--but no lens cleaning kit--and a remote control. I carry a beanbag and occasionally use the beanbag and the remote control stable platform. When I taking photos of kids we will play with the bean bag as an icebreaker sometimes.

    I had a P&S when I went. I think the Ex took the images along with everything else when she left. :lol: The cows on the beach cracked me up. A student riot happened on the day of arrival, so the first few days were to stay on the compound. Very gracious locals, but rife with poverty back then, 1999 or 2000.

    :thumbsup: You know to keep everything close at hand, I'm sure.

    Yeah, on a vacation? Keep it simple. I have a little backpack bag I take on vacation and I generally carry one camera, one very wide range zoom and either a much longer-range zoom or a much wider lens, depending on what kind of pictures I expect to take. I also bring my portable tripod and not my big manfrotto. I try to squeeze the external flash in theres somewhere if I can, but... Honestly, even this much equipment is kind of annoying on a trip.
