5Assuming that OP ask because he travels without his own computer:
- hard drives/memory stick will suffer from the same disadvantage than a CD being connected to virus infected PC's of the local net cafes.
- additional SD cards is an option to store the images, however not for back-up without using a computer.
- Uploading large amounts of files via internet can take ages with the connections here.

6If your DSLR takes SD cards just flick the read only switch before putting them in the card reader. Then burn DVD backups and scan at home before opening.
That's assuming you'll be able to backup on DVDs without capacity problems.
Alternatively, you could look at a bootable system on a CD or memory stick and boot to a portable operating system. Much safer. Other people here can advise on how widely internet cares allow this kind of thing.

7Even if you have to visit an internet cafe to put images on a stick rather than a CD...no biggie. I might opt for 2 smaller sticks and keep as many pics as you can on your cards also. Yes, it's a bit more money, but having backups is a great way to go.
When I did my first RTW trip in 2002, I copied everything to CD and sent back to mom and pop to store. Ended up I never lost anything...but ya never know. I've been traveling extensively since then and just use the sticks as backups and have extra cards on hand for TONS of pics. Works great...
edit: traveling with even a small PC like a net book is a great way to go. Very light weight and you can peruse your pics in the comfort (or not) of you local hotel. ;-)
