We're flying to Turkey tomorrow, with Thomas Cook. They wanted to charge us extra for hold baggage we figured we'd travel hand luggage only. We normally do, anyway, so that didn't sound too hard. It was only when Ichecked the details on our tickets that we learnt that they only allow 5kg of hand luggage.
Now, I'm known for packing light, but 5kg is very light indeed when my camera weighs over 1kg! I've already jettisoned my laptop, and I'll have to wear my jumper and raincoat and boots. I've even reached the stage of wondering what I can carry in my pockets (Kindle? I'm not sure my pockets are big enough!)
What's the lightest you've travelled when travelling light? Are there any airlines with even more ridiculous restrictions...?
Yep, I'm going away again! There are some posts scheduled, and I'll be back in just over a week.
