What to Bring
We recommend that you pack light. Use a rollaboard type luggage (e.g.,TravelPro Rollaboard Luggage, www.travelpro.com, the 25 in. model) and expect to do some laundry. It is better to bring a little extra cash to buy a few unmet clothing needs than trying to pack for every possible weather or fashion contingency. Remember, you are your own porter, working without tips!
Beyond the normal stuff (underwear, socks, shirts, pants, dresses, etc.), also pack:
For your daily needs while touring, a small backpack with room for your video camera, battery, computer or PDA, snacks and bottled water should be sufficient.
