If that's all you're taking you two are travelling REALLY light

Yes, comparing to others with tents and sleeping bags :) We are going to buy some local clothes thou, to blend in.

Ārprāts, kā gan cilvēki agrāk spēja ceļot bez tiem elektronikas gadžetiem :-) bet dāmai ar vieniem apaviem nebūs par maz?

Bez gadžetiem būtu jāstiepj līdzi 1000 lpp. ceļvedi, piemēram. Dāma nopirks iešļūcenes vietējā tirgū un ar diviem apavu pāriem vajadzētu pietikt. Ziemeļos varbūt tiks pirktas ķedas :)
