See my full travel packing list and all details here:

After years of backpacking, I think I’ve found a travel packing list that I’m quite comfortable with. Now, this is my personal list, the things that I bring with me. I understand that you may have different needs, and travel somewhat differently than I, so I would encourage you to take this travel packing list and adapt it to your personal style.

Though eating is my biggest passion in life, it goes together with my passion to travel. I love to travel, and ever since I was a child I grew up in a family that lived overseas. After graduating from University, I decided to travel the world on my own and experience as much as I could. When I first began solo backpacking I lugged around a pretty good size backpack – I think it was a 36 liter or something like that. I formerly carried about 6 sets of clothing, a few pairs of shoes, 5 books, all sorts of gadgets I never really needed or used, and a bunch of other unnecessary list of things.

I also noticed that other backpackers had other humongous backpacks that they carried with them everywhere they went (and it looked painful). Too many clothes and too many toiletries, were a few of the things I noticed very commonly as I backpacked around Southeast Asia.

But the more I traveled, the more I realized the benefits of being able to travel light – that is carrying only the necessary things and being mindful that nearly everything you could need is available at your destination. Not only is much more convenient and easier to get around, it also saves your back! For this travel packing list, it wouldn’t really matter if I’m going on a trip for 1 week or 3 months, the list would be the same.

So here is my travel packing list (following the video):

2 pairs of socks, 3 pairs of underwear, 1 pair of lightweight shorts, 1 cargo shorts, 2 extra t-shirts, towel, light fleece jacket (depending on where you’re going of course), wind pants, flip flops, scarf (for warmth or sun), leatherman tool, sunglasses, lock, toothbrush, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, floss, sunscreen, toenail clippers, tylenol, 1 book, Bible, external hard drive, battery charges, small cell phone, universal adapter, laptop (I would only recommend if you need it), pens, notebook, wallet, credit cards, passport, passport photos, Canon DSLR camera, lens, Rode video mic, tripod.

Also the clothes I’m wearing: 1 t-shirt, 1 pair of jeans, underwear, pair of shoes, socks

Lowepro Passport Sling Camera Bag – I really love this camera bag!
The North Face Big Shot Daypack – Great backpack, perfect size. Alternatively I use an Osprey Talon 44.

FIDELITY – A Documentary about Cuba without Castro

FIDELITY - A Documentary about Cuba without Castro

“Fidelity” is a documentary by Alessandra Magnaghi & Ortensia Visconti, shot in Cuba in July 2006, when Fidel Castro disappeared from the political scene passing power to his brother Raul. It was a milestone in Cuba history and it was clear to everybody that the revolutionary island would never be the same.

This is an independent documentary about the fidelity and loyalty of the people to Fidel Castro. Are Cubans going to preserve the revolutionary values supported by Fidel, even without him? History will tell, but in the meanwhile we went tu Cuba to give voice to the people.

For more information about “Fidelity”, visit our website:

The documentary “Fidelity” has been the official opening of LIDF (London International Documentary Festival) in 2009:

Living Without Laws: Slab City, USA

This bizarre, lawless land in the California desert is inhabited by drug addicts, eccentrics, army vets, hippies and just plain old weirdos. Slab City is referred to by its residents as “the last free place in America.”

How to Travel Abroad without Getting Arrested, Kidnapped, or Killed

Watch more How to Travel videos:

The world can be a dangerous place. Follow these tips to stay safe and sound.

Step 1: Check state department
Avoid countries listed under the State Department’s current travel warnings, and steer clear of pirate-infested waters. Go to for more information.

Register your itinerary at the State Department’s website so the embassies or consulates of the countries you are visiting can contact you in case of an emergency.

Step 2: Research
Research the country you plan to visit by studying its tourism site and paying special attention to any advisories. Also check out online travel forums to find out about laws and crime trends you may be unfamiliar with.

Step 3: Don’t look valuable
Don’t look valuable. Dress down, travel light, and carry just one or two credit or bank cards. Consider using a money belt or neck wallet to store important documents, and never carry more cash than you need. For extra safety, put a decoy wallet with a little cash in your back pocket.

Take note of your credit card limit. In some countries, exceeding your limit is a criminal offense.

Step 4: Be safe on transit
Stay safe on when traveling within a country by riding public transportation with a partner when possible and hailing only clearly marked taxis. On overnight trains sleep in shifts to avoid theft or assault, and on buses sit up front, near the driver.

Step 5: Be aware
Be aware of those around you. If you suspect you’re being followed, circle random blocks and frequently check behind you; if you’re being tailed, contact the authorities immediately or head directly to a police station or a U.S. embassy or consulate.

Step 6: Don’t bring drugs
Never use or carry illegal drugs in a foreign country. For a complete list of drug laws, contact the country’s embassy in the U.S. before your trip.

Step 7: Use common sense
Use common sense. Maintain a low profile, respect local customs, and always carry contact information for U.S. embassies and consulates. Most importantly, never engage in risky behavior that wouldn’t be acceptable back home. Now bon voyage, and be safe!

Did You Know?
More than one-third of all Americans incarcerated abroad are held on drug charges.
