Okay, I leave in a little more than 24 hours, and I have some last minute questions.

I don't plan to bring my laptop with me to Europe, so how can I make more room for pictures without deleting older ones from my memory card? Do camera/department stores in Europe burn them onto a CD for you, and if so, should I bring a stack of CDs?

Second, I know hostels provide bedsheets, but do they provide blankets? I think it'd be impractical to bring a blanket or even a large sleeping bag to hostels. Besides, I can't fit that into my pack.

Lastly, does anyone know if an Ipod's charger (not universal) will still work over Europe as long as you use a converter.

Sorry, these might seem like silly questions, but I just wanted to make sure before I leave on Saturday.

*cracks knuckles*

First one, yes you can get your pictures printed and or put on a cd at film and camera places for a pretty reasonable price. They should provide Cds. Its comparable to continually printing and buying film. Or you can bring your cable and find net cafes that let you upload your pics.

Second, most hostels will have blankets. If not for free, for rent or deposit. Sigh. The hostel I stayed at in Edinburgh had the NICEST duvet covers.... it was lovely, like being at home...

Third, about the ipod, if you get a plug adapter you should be fine. Just watch it so you dont fry it, but chargers and little appliances like hair irons are alright. Your hairdryer, however, is a no no.

Not silly questions at all... Hardly. If you have any others throw em on up here. No worries.

Make sure to relax and enjoy it! Everything will work out swimmingly!

I thought there was a way to download your pics from your digicam onto your ipod...someone more tech savvy know for sure on that one?

WWM is right. You can get the accessory for the ipod to dump your pictures to it.

Here is a link to the ipod cabale attachment:

I plan on getting one of these myself one day...

Oh! And there are apple stores all over Europe so you should be able to pick one up abroad if you need too!
