How We Are Doing It

We are traveling light: two day-packs and two back-packs, three sets of clothes, trekking gear, and enough gadgets to keep in touch and get by. We are experienced backpackers. We stay in mid-range or less hotels, use budget or public transportation whenever we can, and practice relative frugality. We have read widely in preparation for our travels, both about the places we will visit and about the type of travel we are undertaking.
