Alright so next Friday I leave for my 3 week trip to Israel/Palestine. I am going as the photojournalist on the trip, its my first big trip so i'm super excited and a bit nervous. We'll spend 1 week in Bethlehem living with host families and volunteering at the Bethlehem Bible College, a special needs center, a center for the blind, rebuilding homes destroyed by the Israeli attacks and helping out at some refugee camps. From there we'll spend 2 weeks hiking around the desert looking at different historical and Biblical sites. I think my gear list is looking pretty good for the trip, you guys see anything that I may be missing? Canon 40D Canon Xti 17-85mm 28-135mm 50mm f/1.8 10-22mm 16gb worth of cf cards 2 batteries for each camera Laptop and 250gb external hard drive Any other tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
