So I'm heading for SA-Asia for a few weeks and been looking into buying a GoPro Hero4 Silver. Don't worry, I know it's not necessary to buy a fancy camera just for the trip, I'm looking into it as it will benefit me post-travel as well.

My main confusion is which accessories to buy, all the way down to the nuts and bolts.
I'm not going to be doing anything crazy during the trip - I'll mostly be cycling around and exploring plus some underwater activites.

So what are the must have essentials for shooting good pictures+videos with a GoPro? And how many memory cards / batteries should I buy given that I'm not going to be spending much time around a computer?

I'm travelling light and want to avoid carrying some major amount of gadgets that will weigh me down.

Also, how far can I get with editing GoPro videos/pictures with my iPad? I'm not to keen on travelling with my laptop but I'm keeping that option open - however I'd feel weird travelling with both an iPad and a laptop.

Thanks in advance! :)

Really? No one has an opinion on this?
