More getting ready :)

Part of the fun of going on vacation for me is packing my gadgets. So tomorrow (on my day off) I’ll be checking over all my camera gear and packing everything neatly in my new, second-hand camera carry-on (gotta love Geartrade!) and making sure there’s room for my laptop and tablet etc. 🙂

As you can see I’ve already dug out my faithful red vacation phone and made sure it works with the local Tobagonian SIM card I ordered over the web, and I’m looking forward to trying out my old Garmin GPS in the rental car when we arrive. This is my old one that just had out-of-date maps of the US (isn’t it crazy that it’s cheaper to buy a new GPS than update the maps), but I found a free, open-source map online that includes all the Caribbean islands and with a little jiggery-pokery I think I’ve got it working- but we’ll have to wait and see if it can get me from the airport to the house (although as Jackie says- it’s too small an island to get lost on).

I’m such a geek 😉
