There is nothing that prohibits you from carrying a microscope onboard an airplane. One thing to mention is the tools that comes with it, if I am not mistaken microscopes comes with a set of tools (I have seen one made for amateurs), it comes with some sort of sharp tools and/or some kind of liquids in small bottles (I guess dye or something like that). ...

One option is to go to a hostel and ask them. For example, Hostel Zappio (I believe that's the one I stayed in, but I'm not sure) - it shows online as having luggage storage. Yes, in theory that's for guests staying there, but I've asked shops and hostels/hotels to look after bags for me in the past, and sometimes they've done it for free, sometimes for a ...

The keyword you want to search for is "bonded warehouse". I've done this elsewhere - ship to "Me, c/o Bonded warehouse, Border Town USA".

What finally happened was that they let me on with 2.5KG overweight - 25.5KG vs 23KG advertised limit.

Of course - your millage may vary.

Regarding Gdanks, as I discovered later, there are plenty of luggage lockers. It just happens that I exited through the "wrong" side of the station (via the bus terminal) where they have at most 10 lockers (and they were all full). Additional information On the main entrance of the station there are several lockers. It seems to be busy since most of them ...

Turkish Airlines applies the MSC (Most Significant Carrier) rule. We'll come to that in a minute. Firstly it's worth noting that their 'official' baggage allowance is on their website. So that's the first point of call. It lists economy class limits at 20kg. However, all over that page are exceptions. Example: Free baggage allowance from Germany to ...

Just to respond to a few of your concerns... Most Greyhound stations are relatively small, so finding your way around is not that hard. If the doors/gates are not clearly marked, ask! In the smaller stations, (which may be gas stations or truck stops) the person behind the counter is usually a local expert on Greyhound and often more helpful than the ...
