Bill, have a good and safe trip!
I use both film and digital.
Film because I like the "slow" process, I like the waiting before to see the results, I like my old film cameras.
Digital because I like the convenience, the possibility to shoot only a few frame and see the result, the possibility to change iso according to the situation...
PS: as a pure amateur I can decide which tool to use depending both on final goal of the photo and on my mood...
