I've started planning a trip to Sicily for early next year. This will be a LF focused trip, well that and food.
I was thinking of sending my film over via Fed Ex, not because I'm concerned about the scanning it would go through, but more of an insurance measure against the robots who work security at the airports. Is there a concern of them opening the boxes if it is in my checked luggage?
I'll pack the camera and film holders in my checked luggage but carry the lenses with me. The tripod will fit in the luggage without the head on, so maybe I'll carry that as well so it doesn't go missing. How prevalent is theft from checked luggage?
Other check list stuff; Italy SIM card for my phone, possible laptop, changing bag in case I can't make the bathroom into a darkroom.
If any of our Italian members on the forum has any experience with getting around by bus while in Sicily I'd like to hear from them. Right now the plan is to stay in one city, probably Ragusa and maybe go to a few other towns for day trips by bus. I don't think I want to rent a vehicle.
Thoughts, suggestions welcomed.
