Traveling with a Computer?

Jump to last reply

Hello! I'll be spending the month of January in Montevideo, Uruguay for a Spanish Immersion program. We'll stay with a family and take classes at a school nearby.

I'm torn as to whether or not to bring my computer. It's a month long trip, and I'd like to be able to check emails and update my blog. I won't need the computer for schoolwork. Supposedly, there will be one or two computers to use at my school, but past experience says those are always in high demand. So in that sense, I'd like my laptop.

On the other hand, I don't know how I feel about traveling internationally with it. It's annoying to travel with domestically, and could streamline the process by not bringing it. And, walking will be my mode of transportation in montevideo. I don't know how smart it is to carry a laptop around- I wouldn't do it downtown here, so probably shouldn't there, in a place I'm unfamiliar with.

What are your thoughts on traveling with technology? How do you keep it/yourself safe?
