    Z poles as flight cabin baggage stored in pack, question.

    Sorted. I do not want to check my bag in because of a logistic problem. My friend fly's elsewhere early morning, I am helping her through security and to her departure gate. I fly much later so will not be able to check baggage in after I accompany her through to departures. So I just got a...

    Where to lighten the load?

    I'd have a lighter bag under a kilo plus leave down jacket, it's a great jacket but if it gets wet then it's heavier and a problem, take the other one.

    Best Camino Norte Guide Book

    Should be Laura Perazzoli, apologies. One thing to note the book does have guides for Norte, Primitivo and Ingles and finisterre too.

    Sorry messed up posting this. But can the above bee taken onboard inside cabin baggage or do small poles need to be checked in? Flying frm UK by Ryanair. Many thanks. I have looked at their site but cannot find a definitive answer.

    Changing to a 20L from 32L pack

    I took a Deuter Actlite 40+10 in 2015, last year an Osprey Talon 33 a very nice comfy pack. This time may take a Talon 22 just so I can take it as cabin luggage.
