I've got several different questions!
Plug adapter for Russia - what size?
Since I want to travel as light as possible (not carrying my battery charger), are AA batteries readily available in Russia? I'll be in major cities - St. Petersburg and Moscow. These would be for my camera.
Is a bag like the Pacsafe City Bag 200 really worth buying? It looks huge on Pacsafe's website, but the current nylon Nine West cross-body purse I have really isn't big enough to hold a decent amount for travel. Is the strap long enough to put cross-body? It was hard to tell.
Friends who have traveled to Europe recently have told me that it's a good idea to have liquid toiletries in bottles with both) oz and ml markings. They've seen American travelers at European airports lose their toiletries because the bottles (ones you fill yourself) were only marked "3 oz" and the traveler did not have the language skills to tell the screener that 3 oz was about 100 ml. I know that the empty bottles I bought at Walmart only show "3 oz." However, if I buy travel sizes of commercially available products, the size markings are in both oz *and ml. Has anyone else run into this?
