    I got mine last year with Tescos which was about £80 for me to cover a month in most of europe. Most places wouldn't insure me because of a heart op i had so they might be worth a try.
  3. Ive just seen this new foot and thought it looks quite promising. The main questions are when will someone make it available to buy and what is the price going to be.
  4. I've now been living in a tent for the last 2 weeks with another 2 to go, I flew in to the south coast of portugal and the airport staff were really helpful asking if I needed any assistance and got to board first wich made things easy. As I've been staying in camp sites I've been using crutchs or a waterproof leg cover and a fold up chair to shower as the showers are small and basic. Also a chair to sit on in the mornings to put my leg on, I've found that it covers most situations except that my knee has broke and is leaking oil so if you have a spare it might be worthwhile taking it or you could end up spending weeks with a leg that just swings with no control.
