So, on our trip to the UK, we happened to have to go through a few airports.
So, in order of travel:
Mackay Airport – OH stopped and swabbed for the bomb test.
Brisbane Airport – ME! Hand luggage searched, and I had a full body frisk
On the flight, made friends with a nice English lady. As we go through Changi Airport, joked that she shouldn’t go through security with us because she will probably get stopped. Low and behold…… she got my Brisbane treatment!!
Leaving Heathrow – OHs number was up again! Quick frisk before we could go!
Leaving Changi – My turn AGAIN.
Then, we arrive in Brissie – of course, we have declared the “drugs” (antibiotics) and “food” (Lotsa lollies) The guy asked us why we had circled them – explained what we had and he said we could go. That was until cute little puppy sat down next to our case. Cue another bag search.
Let me note at this point that at NO stage did we have anything we shouldn’t have!!
Does anyone else get this sort of attention when travelling? Should I be changing the way I dress or the way I walk????
