I love traveling but every time that I plan a trip I fret over the choice of camera gear I want to take. Interestingly I am not worried about not having the right gear and missing some critical shot, but I really struggle to pick a camera or two that I want to use. I have too many wonderful options and this makes my selection difficult.
For this trip, I have decided to travel light so that I can travel deep...let me explain. Carrying heavy gear, something I have done for years, is photographically rewarding but limits the enjoyment of the travel itself. You end up walking a bit less, taking short cuts and reducing the depth of your travel.
So I will pack to travel light, travel deep and travel often! So I went through my gear and opted for the following setup.
I have been to Rome several times, and I have been to Athens once. Hence I will not be trying to capture all the architectural images and will focus on people. The family I will travel with, the people seeing the amazing sights and people we encounter along the way.
