It’s the electronic age for sure in the world of nomadic wanderers. Everywhere we go we see travellers with laptops, ipads, mp3 players of all kinds, smartphones, external hard drives…you get the idea.

We find that having a laptop with us makes it so much easier to plan our next location, stay in touch with family via Skype, deal with banking without worrying about using a shared computer, and download photos onto our external drive. We could definitely get by without it, but I find it an easy luxury to justify.
