Default Leaving Camera Memory Cards With Foreign Merchants

Many of us have left camera memory cards with all of our pictures at a foreign photo shop or with the ship's photo department. On a trip to Europe a couple of our passengers, when they returned to pick up some printed photos from they memory card learned thier memory card had been "lost". Since the ship was sailing that evening there was nothing to do except accept the "loss". With high capacity memory cards selling for sometimes large prices, we have a suggestion. If you plan on getting a few prints made while you are traveling, so you can share with friends on board, think about using a smaller capacity memory card rather than one of the large 8 or16 G cards. Using a 1 G cr (or less) will save you a lot of money and prevent you losing a ton of pictures if the card is misplaced by the photo shop. After all you can't go back tomorrow to see if they found it.Don't do like we did in South America by forgetting to bring extra cards and purchasing locally. We paid about 10 times the price for the same card in the US.
