    Hand Sanitizer will save your stomach

    by justintobias Written Aug 5, 2006

    Luggage and bags: A hip pouch or a back pack is good when traveling in the day so you can put all the crap you buy in it. A bag with a camelbak in it would be cool.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes for walking large distances, sandals for the beach

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: hand sanitizer, portable toilet paper, mosquito repellant for night, keeping some anti-diarrheal is a good idea but not necessary. There are not alot of places that have soap for porper hand washing.

    Photo Equipment: High capacity memory cards because there are a ton of things to take pictures of. I took almost 800.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sunglasses are a must, as well as a hat in the day time. Sunscreen if you burn, but it may not help because you sweat alot over there.

    Miscellaneous: handkercheif because of excessive sweating
