Hey, I am having exactly the same problem. My luggage is about 3-4cms bigger each way. And I just bought it all too. Problem is, I'm travelling for around 8 months, so I can't have anything smaller. I called Topdeck and asked and the lady said it probably wouldn't matter. I'm going to Egypt though, and I imagine their buses would be pretty strict... :S I really don't want to get Egypt and told I have to leave my luggage behind!!! I'm also doing a EuroClub tour later, so hopefully it will turn out good.[br][br]Also, it says in the pre-departure info that there is to be no externally framed packs... What does that mean?! I have a standard suitcase with wheels and a handle that pulls up. I hope that's okay...[br][br]Pharaoh's Footsteps: Oct 18th, 2008.[br]Winter European Getaway: Nov 25th, 2008.
