A few months back my wife and I had to bail on a vacation we were planning to the Maldives. We discovered the cost plus the time needed to get there combined with my wife's PTO made it less than ideal. So, after a sad come-to-Jesus with our friends we started to talk about the top places in the world we would love to visit.
Not surprisingly, we had a number of similar places we wanted to visit. So, we began to hunt for cheap flights and discovered that my dream location had direct flights from Minneapolis round trip for $600 a person. Combined with my flight miles, we wound up flying direct international for 2 people for $400! Needless to say, that trip starts this coming week and we are both ecstatic.
We will be spending 7 days in a van driving across my dream photo location. Starting to pack for a dream photo vacation with only so much room, meant a new Thule bag, numerous new memory cards as well as trying to figure out what to bring and what not to bring camera wise. With a desire to take both film and digital photos, as well as capture video, it has complicated what may and may not fit in our new Thule bag.
