    Bro,
    What you've done is just fantastic
    Those of us into travel and photography, have something to look forward to here...
    a bit hard to find kakis who have interests in backpacking and photography.

    Please count me in if you are planning a trip to Mongolia in July. I cannot say for sure that I will join you, but in case I don't make it to Tibet in June with some friends, then I am game for Mongolia.
    I too can't take leave often

    Cheers

    Suggestion 1- get a mitten glove that have a flap that can selectively cover the last segment of the fingers when you do not need to handle the buttons, and can be flapped open when you need to assess the buttons. my girlfriend got me one but i do not know where to buy them. Nuts suggest "Winning (now they have 1 branch in Taka) used to have them but I find them not very good mabbe bcoz of the materials... YMMV"
    Bro,
    I bought mine from Wintertime at Suntec (now closed down, but I guess there's one in Marina Square now), last year. I think it costs less than 15 bucks.

    Lotusfairy,

    cool
    I will check with a colleague of mine if she is interested in Goa. Will let you know.
    She went to Mongolia in Aug/Sep this year and has since been raving about it. Got me all interested in travelling there.

    I see..Many of you guys seems interested to backpack.. Hmm..it can been pretty rough in some instances..

    Anyway, if we are talking about backpacking photography, it generally falls into these two types of backpacking trips.

    1. set up base camp to cover as much an area in daily treks & breaking camp from origin.
    2. covering a different area/region daily and ending where you eventually planned..

    Count me in..

    base camp? sounded so much like mountain trekking. that is very tiring and requires a physique. in order to enjoy photography, i prefer the latter, except that i dun cover a different area/region everyday. if the place is worth exploring, it can be the same area/region for more than 1 day.

    I think we are not talking about the same thing/issue.. There is a difference between backpacking tour/trip & backpacking photography..

    Yup, you are right, it takes alot of tough work..Some of my shorter assignments sometimes takes me upto 6 weeks out in the wild..Anyway, photography is my job and vice versa, so I am game for both.. Count me in..
