Hi Jaison,

We don't have anything specifically for that. You could export a GEDCOM and import it into a desktop program. Anything you discover while on the road would have to be manually entered on WikiTree when you got back online.

GEDCOMs can't include photos. There's really no automated way to handle those.

Although this is an old question. I thought I would add an answer that I thought would be useful.

Gramps is an  free program that is available for Windows, Linux and Mac. Probably more relevant to this question, it can also be run as a Portable App. Portable apps are designed to be fully self-contained on a USB key. You could insert the USB into ant Windows type computer and run the application of the key to edit or display your tree that it contains.

My own personal method is to first enter my tree to my family tree program and then duplicate it to Wikitree.

It is also possible to download a portion of the tree from the family tree program for uploading to Wikitree and merging to your Wikitree tree. I believe Chris and the team are working on partial downloads the other way (from Wikitree to your PC)...(Chris: hint...hint!)
