This is something I like with my film work as well.

Enjoy going to the lab and choosing film.

No need to worry about battery or portable HDD or laptops .. or backup strategies.
Come back and get one or two sets d+p or just project the slides.
All the prints are there .. all the slides can be projected instantly ..
No computer work.
Bad pictures and good pictures documents the trip that we did.
No LCD at the camera .. take and walk away ..

A few months ago .. I lost some graduation negatives .. that was 4 years away - it was between 2 video tapes in the lounge. You cannot do that with digital. Gone is gone unless you had a secondary backup strategy.. Plus those were the most important pictures at the clocktower building .. we had prints around .. so we kinda accepted they were lost .. having found them was a nice feeling ..
