I am off on my first RTW in september and one of my main concerns is how i am going to transfer my photos from my camera onto a computer. do all internet cafes let you plug in your camera to their computer? Do i need a card reader for this? Sorry being a bit dumb but just want to make sure all my photos are safe!

thanks

Many modern internet caf├ęs have memory card readers, otherwise you can almost always plug in your camera via the USB port. Just ask the staff or show them your camera - most of these places are used to puzzled travellers with cameras in hand. Just remember to bring a camera-to-USB-cable! have fun ;)

I found it's a pretty straight forward affair; just whip your memory card out, hand it over, and within about 15 mins your pix are on a CD and you're ready to go....happy days :)

Just be careful of clumbsy photoshop staff. In Spain I watched on as this guy tried to shove my memory stick into the card reader upside down. After a bit of yelling and screaming to stop we got it all done.

After that I looked for a internet cafe which had cd burners.
