Wanderlust Findings: Photography Gear, Hiking & Hiding Money

May 29th · 4 Comments

Sacred Monkey Forest / Indonesia, UbudStarting this week we’ll be starting a new feature I call the Wanderlust Findings! I read quite a few travel blogs through my Google RSS Reader and thought I’d share the best of the best, or at least what I found most interesting, with you all. Hopefully you’ll find some new blogs you like and at worst, I save the links here for posterity!

  • Martha has been looking at some DSLR cameras so she can get back into photography and this post by Gray of SoloFriendly.com shares her travel camera setup. Like her, my general apprehension about DSLRs is that they’re so heavy – like a bowling ball around your neck (that and you’re a target for thieves). In the end it’s a tradeoff.
  • Martha and I have been to Kilauea Point on Kauai before but if you haven’t, and find yourself nearby, here’s a good post on why you should go.
  • The Finger Lakes Trail looks deceptively simple yet only 20 people thru-hike it each year and fewer than 300 have done it ever. If you have six to seven weeks, why not give it a try? 🙂
  • Need a place to hide money while you’re traveling? Check out these slick ways to stash cash from Twenty-Something Travel.

Have a great weekend!

    Hey, thanks for the mention! FYI, though, I’m a “she” not a “he”. 🙂

    Thanks for the mention! That view is stunning for sure!

    About DSLRs, Andy converted a couple of years ago. He’ll never go back to a point and shoot. Using a DSLR takes some educating, but the effort seems to be worth it. Just one warning, if Martha is anything like Andy, she’ll be wanting to upgrade from time to time. 🙂

    Hahaha, well, we bought one and it’s been a lot of fun. We’re looking forward to using it on an upcoming trip to Lake Tahoe. 🙂
