I'm leaving for europe soon, and will be stopping by at Spain, among others. We will be staying mostly in hostels, so we'll have to take our valuables along with us as well.
I have heard from ALOT of friends to take great care in Spain...I have a few qns!
I only have a squarish bag with screams CAMERA, but i only have that bag and will sling it infront. Total value of my lens + camera is more ex than my trip i think....
My passport, wallet, and other misc stuff will be placed in a waistpounch worn around my stomach under my shirt.
But I have a problem with my tripod. My father lend it to me, it's about 3-4kg and I'm hoping to bring it along to take some long exposure shots.
Do you think it's advisable to bring along such a heavy equipment?
Should I check it in with my luggage or carry it with me on board the plane? If the latter...is it allowed? since it looks like a fantastic weapon to hijack a plane with LOL
Any advise will be much appreciated!
