This trip has been 2 years in the making, well actually way more than that considering i've been wanting to go F-O-R-E-V-E-R. I'm going on a cultural safari tour with The Safari Collection and I have a feeling it's gonna be awesome!!! Sooo not looking forward to the flight though. About 35 hours in all, HNL to JFK (New York) - 9.5 hours; JFK to DXB (Dubai) - 12.5 hrs, and DXB to NBO (Nairobi) A little over 5 hours. With all the layovers it's gonna be a looooong journey. This is gonna be farthest and longest trip i've ever taken.
Here's a picture of my gear, I wish I could bring more but i'm very limted to the amount of luggage I can bring. 33 lbs to be exact. That is inclusive of carry on + luggage. My camera bag weighs 20lbs. Yikes! If you're wondering what I finally decided on, it's my 5D MKII, 70-200mm 2.8, 16-35mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 1.5x extender, flash, and a neutral density filter with holder (I have no idea how to use this yet but the photographer on the trip recommended I get one). Oh yah and that's my new Everyday Backpack that I bought on kickstarter. It's a pretty cool bag and it holds a lot of stuff!!
I'll try to blog everyday i'm there, it's a short trip, only a week (waaaah!) But I think it will be totally worth it...see you soon!
