RE: [IP] Re:Flying in Europe



I flew through Japan a few years ago and was VERY paranoid about Japanese
regulations - Had an entire folder of paperwork and stuff just in case - Got
to the customs and passport station - Noticed the guards with M16's and
decided to NOT mention anything and just use the paperwork if needed.

I handed them my passport and the guy was so interested in my last name and
laughing at it that nothing else was said.  I had stressed a LOT over
nothing.

My rule of thump now is to bring a NEW bottle of insulin IN THE BOX on the
plane as a spare - it has prescription label - that should be plenty to
prove need for syringes.

Also FYI - TSA supposedly allows an extra carry on for medical supplies - I
have never tried to use that excuse though...

I just returned from Europe.  I boarded in Barcelona and Milan without  
 trouble. Barcelona had a huge sign with pictures of things they would not
allow
which included insulin syringes but no one said a thing when I went
through.
