Re: [IPp] traveling to Europe

Hi Octavia,
last month we went to Peru with Giulia 8, and we left the hour of the  
country we were leaving until landing. Then went directly to the hour  
of the country we landed. It worked quite well. As we do go there  
regularily, I tried other systems such as changing bit by bit and it  
was not worth the hassle.
Good luck,
Don't forget to ask a paper that specifies that the pump are yours  
and have permit to leave the country. I also always take the dubble  
material needed and half of it with me in the plane. In case the  
luggage get lost.  I always take also with me as much food as  
possible and a bottle of water. Wonder why, but Goiulmia get high or  
low when we can't go to the hostesss for sugar or water. Murphy's law  
I guess.
Take care,
