I'm about to rush off to Egypt at short notice for a few days, maybe even two weeks. I'm most likely to be in a decent hotel so I shouldn't have to rough it. Is it possible to take prescription medication with me? What about "tesco remedies"? I'm hoping to take my camera and laptop too. Has anyone got any recent experience of travelling with these by air? Should I take them as hand-held luggage, or must they go as baggage in the hold? Plus, what sensible advice, info and tips could you give to someone who hasn't travelled abroad in twenty years. Are there any essentials to remember?
