The days seem to get longer, the weekends rush by and my temper sours, it is time for a vacation. A time to get some distance from my problems and focus on something completely new. For me this usually means travel, as I have been fortunate enough to have ample opportunity to do so.
Everyone plans their vacation differently, some go for the spontaneous trip, I have always envied those people, and some go for the carefully planned trip. I am obviously the latter. I am happy to leave ample time for spontaneous events, so long as they are well planned in my itinerary!
So how do you plan a vacation when taking film? Twenty years ago this was not a question, you would toss your film camera in a bag with the roll that was already in it, arrive at your destination and pick up film in any of the millions of places around town. Nice, simple.
These days finding film is not easy. As you do a search on the internet you will find all kinds of conflicting information about X-ray, hand carry, insurance and so forth. I thought I would simplify it down based on traveling with film for the last five years all over the globe.
