Lost in transit
I have just got back from Iceland with my family. All of our checked-in bags, including all of my camera gear, got sent to France by mistake, and they were then sent back to our home rather than to our accommodation in Iceland!
These photos were taken with my smartphone, along with all of the other photos from the trip. We’re planning to go on another trip later this year, so the camera and its gear will definitely be coming in our hand luggage this time. Karl Reynolds, via email Oh no, Karl, what an awful way to learn a useful lesson. Sadly we have also had our checked-in luggage sent to the wrong city before, so now we always keep our camera kit (and a clean pair of pants!) in our hand luggage when we fly. We hope that the (very apt) star letter prize helps to make up for your disappointment.
The Reynolds family’s wintry Iceland trip had to be captured on smartphones
