    does anyone know if you have to pick up your own luggage at KL airport when transferring?
    Rhett and i booked ridiculously cheap flights which means we have a stop over in KL from Perth AUS and then have to make our way from stansted at 6am to russell square. boo! :P

    in way of luggage Roopa, we got duffle bag style bags which are like 1cm longer than the limit but a few cmss thinner. they have an extendable handle so work as a bag or a suitcase depending what you want, they were pretty cheap too. dont get hard cases though, they are heavier and often crack or splinter when in transit.

    Hey guys, so if your travelling from Australia your sleeping bag is not included, it must be purchased before you go on the tour, we will be going 6 nights in the bag to so i have been told anything from 3+ is great.
    I’m taking just a nice big black suitcase that has wheels on the bottom and just a day bag, should be enough…… i hope :)

    can you purchase decent sleeping bags when you get to london? the ones in perth are all pretty expensive for a light weight small one, id rather purcahse one when i get over there than have it included as weight on the flight over.

    I am getting one today as small and cheap as I can and ditching it for the way home – sleeping bag that is.

    In terms of luggage I have a suitcase and a small backpack for the day to day stuff :]

    I’m bringing a suitcase and just a day pack too, tried packing things into my suitcase today to make sure it will fit and couldnt get everything in :( I think you can buy sleeping bags at the basement or something but I’m not sure.
    Sharii-Yeah i’m bringing on of those quick dry towels I figure that we aren’t gonna be doing heaps of swimming hahah

    Alright, I think I’ll go with the suitcase then, it will be much easier to pack and find things in.
    I never thought about those quick dry towels, might have to get me one of those today :)

    sorry for giving out false info! i wonder why they only provide people from certain places with sleeping bags. does anyone know how big the bag we carry on the bus can be? is anyone bringing a backpack? i was thinking of it, but not sure if its too big. thanks to all who have shared information on here, its really helpful :)

    Brandon- We canadians are provided with a sleeping bag.

    As for luggage, i was planning on bring a large travel backpack and a small day bag for each day so i can put a sweater in it and maybe some snacks for when we are travelling around. Itll be pretty small so i can fit it onto my lap when we are on the bus or under the seat.
