If you have a passion for photography like I do, then you can hardly leave for a trip without your full camera gear. Travel and photography go hand in hand because new places and people tickle a photographer’s creativity, there are a lot more occasions for great shots and it’s a human desire to bring back home something more than memories.
I’ve spent almost ten years now adventure traveling to the five continents and, although I still consider myself a rookie compared to many of the travelers I met around the world (pros with 20 or more trips under their belts!), I built over time a pretty extensive experience on how to gear up for adventure. This experience comes in part from mistakes I did in my first trips and in part from all the things I learned observing fellow travelers more experienced than myself.
