@BrunoPérel cool, today I learned. Felt it might be handy for others to know what they were too.

@hippietrail it's from the wiki article - I was just summarising (and they mean actually exchanging) - they're claiming it's more expensive at the airport. Some have said that before on here.

comment In what countries are tea towels available as souvenirs?
My parents have one from like Turkey, I've seen them in South America, Japan and more. I'd be surprised more to see countries that don't sell them as souvenirs.

comment Emirates International Flight and carry-on baggage. Can I take a laptop backpack in addition to the one carry-on bag?
@MAC indeed, but that's the tradeoff. I have a travel laptop (2.5lbs) which makes it easier, but certainly if I was travelling with my 6lb laptop it'd be tricky. jpatokal, yeah, agreed, that's why I've refined my carry-on, my next Jetstar flight is still going to be tight tho. When a disagreement has happened I point out it's valuables and heart medicine, and I've always been let through (only happened twice though).

Related: Are carry-on bags being weighed on long-haul flights? and Is there any trick to checking in more weight on planes?
