Default help choosing...a2200 vs SX 130is

i know that seems like 2 totally different leagues.

we are going to ireland and a couple other places this year and i need the best compact camera i can get for the money. i ditched my fuji s8000sd because of its size and i figured i would go back to canon this time.

here are my choices the best way i know to break them down.

A2200 has what i think will be a good size for my back pack and pockets as we go about our travels. i dont know much about its performance however.
price: 139.99 plus $20 off with an office depot coupon

SX 130is is known for performance but may be a little bulky for travel.
the price difference is a negative however as it is quite a bit higher.

if you guys could give in put or toss out another suggestion that would be great.

themadness, I use the sx130is and find it an excellent cam. It's small enough to carry in a jacket pocket and takes real fine pics. Very easy to use and I recently went to the easiest setting to snap photos called Easy Mode. Press shutter halfway to focus then press all the way to take pic. I do not know anything about the A2200. Good luck and have good trips.Hope this helps.
