Thursday Thirteen #22: Tips for Travellers

This is really cool... the guy is playing the piano using balls.


13 Tips for Travellers
[I guess this is being practice in most international airports]

  1. For your carry-on baggage, no liquids allowed [including liquors]. You can bring your empty water bottle and just refill it from the fountain after you went through the whole screening process.
  2. If you are travelling with baby, you are allowed to bring formula milk.
  3. If you are travelling with kids over 2 years old, rule number 1 will apply - no liquids, no tetra pack juices in container of more than 100ml.
  4. If you should bring a toothpaste, lotion, perfume, hairspray, bodyspray, shampoo and conditioner and anything with gel on it - make sure the container is not more than 100ml. It is important to remember that it is not the contents that counts but the size of the container.
  5. And make sure that these items are put in a ziploc bag, including lighter and nailclipper.
  6. If you do need to bring the above items in more than 100ml container, please put them in your check-in luggage.
  7. Absolutely no sharp objects, pocket knives, scissors [irregardless of the size] in the carry-on baggage.
  8. It is also important to remember that there are restaurants and shops in the boarding area. So don't buy your coffee unless you will be able to finished it before entering the security/screening area.
  9. If you need to discard stuff in the screening area, please don't take it out on the people who works there... they are just there to do their job.
  10. You are allowed to bring food/sandwiches/donuts/fruits... except for yogart that is in a container of more than 100ml.
  11. Make sure that your carry-on baggage is within the required size and maximum weight of the airline.
  12. In Calgary International Aiport, the prices of food inside the airport is the same price as those located outside the airport. So you will not to ripped off.
  13. Of course vending machine are priced higher than those that can be bought in stores.

#1 nalang ako co-comment ha. Lahat ng fresh milk na karga ko pinatapon dahil di puede dalhin sa loob ng eroplano. Ayun ang anak ko puro juice at crackers lang ang kinain for 22 hours sa eroplano.

Hi Junnie,
I'm sure memorized mo na yan! Ang dalas mo kasing magbiyahe.

Hi Liz,
Airport rules changed a lot since 911 and the London incident last year... better to travel with less baggage for less hassle.

Hi Raquel,
Fresh milk is not allowed talaga... pero kung formula milk ang dala mo, puwede. May milk naman sa plane, dapat humingi ka ng madami!

Hi Amy,
You're welcome!

Hi Gina,
Yup, we sure are! Hard to plan coz hubby only got 2 weekends there and we wanted to do a lot of things.
