Recording samples with a mic

hi. i wanna know how to record samples on the go. what sort of mic would be good for recording audio samples? and what would i record them to? could i record good samples directly to a hard drive or storage device? what mic would be best? its for recording samples to use in experimental electro/tech in a few months while im travelling in europe.




would do the trickā€¦

if size isnt a major issue you could consider using a laptop?
