11 September 2011


I seem to be obsessing about what to take to Tuscany.  I always pack to much and half of what I take never comes out of my suitcase.  We are going in October and I've been reading blogs etc and the weather seems changeable.  Either nice and sunny or rainy and cold.  The average temps are from 11 deg to 22 deg.  Maybe what I am planning on taking will be okay.  But do I really need 6 pairs of trousers/shorts?

I will definitely be taking my SLR camera.  There is something about the mystery of not really knowing what the photograph will be like until they've been printed.  And I know that this camera will capture the architecture and feeling to Tuscany perfectly.  But how many films should I get?

We are going for 15 days including travel.  An average of two rolls of film for 13 snapshot taking days = 26 rolls of film.

The films I will be getting have 36 exposures. So, 36 x 26 = 936 photographs.

That (scarily) seems about right.  I took close to 1,000 photographs when we went to Egypt, and probably Disney too, and 300 photographs when we went to Russia.

26 rolls of film from Amazon is over 100 quid!  Maybe I should take less photographs??
