Don't stress mate I fly Thomas Cook & Thomson loads they both have stupidly low handluggage weight parameters and I always fly with a rucksack containing laptop and irreplaceables that weighs about 12kg or more. Plus a 20kg suitcase in the hold full of gear ! Put shoes etc. in a bag for life and pretend it's from airside shops (WH Smith cover bag works a treat).Just noticed my next trip is with an airline that gives you either 6kg or 8kg in-cabin allowance. I won't put stuff in the hold due to the cost and the high chance of it ending up in Oslo, so I might end up the first afternoon trying to buy towels, t-shirts etc etc if my normal gear has to be ditched for weight! I know there are cheap shops around the bus stops to buy stuff I can buy once and chuck (not very environmentally friendly).
I'm bringing my own aqua-shoes as flip-flops don't cut it for me (well, they cut my feet when they fail) and the go-pro rather than full-on camera (loopy photos here we come). Does that count as shoe-string??
Anyway, shoe-string question (and I am aware there's a Decathlon but it's out-of-town) where can I buy aqua shoes for the same price as at home (ie less than a tenner)?? Cheers
