Editor's Note: Before Mark set off on his trip around the world, he provided Conde Nast Traveler with a shopping list of items that he would need to stay blogging. The list included: a MacBook Pro and an Internet card for connectivity, a digital camera, a Palm Treo 680, an 80-gig iPod (pre-loaded with Shakira*), and enough batteries and adaptors to power a small village. We gladly obliged with the caveat that Mark blog as often as possible. So far, so good.
Below, Mark offers a tour of his gear bag.
*We're kidding about Shakira.
