But now I am back with my no. 1 airport fear.
Maybe you haven’t travelled overseas yet or your country isn’t as intense with their security measures or maybe it’s just me but I have a fear of customs (probably the latter)
I know I haven’t done anything wrong, I’ve gone through the immigration forms multiple times: checked my signature to make sure it’s the same as on my passport, declared leather that doesn’t need declaring (you’re allowed to do that, I checked) and gone through my passport to make sure I haven’t been in the Caribbean at all (an actual tick box). I have also made sure I’ve taken off every single metal item possible (even though it may not actually be metal) and dried out my water bottles so I know it’s liquid free (not liquor free, you’re allowed that 😉)
And although I know I have followed every possible airport regulation (except maybe being 3 hours early since I have a bit of a problem with following a schedule…) I get scared when I go through a metal detector, every time a dog comes up and sniffs my bag for drugs and every time I stand in the hour long exit queue.
In the end it all turns out ok and I wonder why I spent an hour worrying instead of being productive by going through social media but that’s the way I am.
Do any of you find airport security a bit daunting?
