Who can say what will happen really, but just be cautious. I have a similar plan which will commence at the end of this year. It's going to be Amazing! I really find it hard being patient.

You guessed it right yourself. The word is caution. As for India, I can say this - a greater portion of the travelers coming to India carry DSLRs and MP3 players.

The amount of caution that needs to be exercised depends directly on the kind of travel and accommodation. If you're backpacking and staying at hostels etc, you'll be better off getting a locker if available at the place.

Have a good trip. I'm sure it'll be too good.
