When you are going to your holiday and you are having a good time, I'm sure that you really want to capture that beautiful moment in your life. In that case, don't forget to take your camera !!
You should choose which type of camera that suitable for you. If you are a professional photographer you will choose the professional camera, with great quality of lens, lot of features such as : viewfinder, autofocus, etc (you need some time to learn all these feature). But if you don't want to get headache then choose pocket camera, which (mostly) also equipped with features that almost the same with the professional camera (although the features are more better in professional camera).
You can easily find in the market various memory card (from 64 MB till 1 GB or even more!!) that provide you more than enough space for your pictures. Make sure that you have memory card that compatible to your digital camera (some digital camera only compatible with particular memory card).
Video Camera/ digital camcorder
Nowadays, there are "digital map". You can find certain direction/destination easily because what you need is only to put your destination address and put your starting location. Then the map will show the direction. With the latest technology you can put this digital map into your cellphone!
Personally I prefer to bring my pocket digital camera. It more handy and practical than the professional camera (But sometimes I also want to use professional camera). About the map, to be honest I'm not really care about the map because I can buy the map when I arrive in my holiday destination. But I think digital map is more handy than "old-school" map.
