9th – Under a week to go and I’m still not ready. The main bag has stuff thrown over it, the camera bag is empty. Still need cash, and an international license. Several tasks around the house to do. Worst of all, I’m still not comfortable with the cameras regarding changing functions quickly. Sigh.
12th – Finally packed! The weight of the cameras and lenses, 12kg, was a problem for hand baggage, so I will carry a camera and lens on a strap. The large bag is fine at 14kg.
Drama over the Mango Durban-Joburg flight booked in Feb via eDreams. I discovered only one bag was allowed. Attempts to amend it and later cancel, were not possible. I then asked Flight Centre to re-book, which resulted in the same issue! More enquiries reveal the extra bag is paid for on arrival. I hope.
