I have a cheap laptop that I bought on ebay just for this type of travel so I can backup my pictures. All you need is a real cheap laptop and a 2 GB USB drives (About $30). Between the laptop and the camera memory I have a real good backup, good way to document my trip, and don't too much if it gets stolen.
