So, next Wednesday is going to be the first time my BF and I will be flying without anyone older 'supervising'(!) us. I have numerous questions! - We will be taking our advent calenders (yes.. we're both 20yrs old and still have to have an advent calender in December!) and will be carrying them in our hand luggage - will we have to declare them on the customs form and what do we declare them as? - In relation to the last question, does anyone know of anywhere where I could download a 'copy' of the forms that you have to sign on the airplane (just to get some idea of what to expect!)? - I wear contact lenses and am staying overnight in the Hilton Gatwick the night before we fly. Same goes for my BF. Now, we both intend to put fresh lenses in the next day, but are we allowed to carry the storage case in our hand luggage with us, and some unpressurized saline? (I'll put the peroxide solution I use for overnight storage in the hold baggage) - Am I right in thinking that all pressurized containers are to be stored in the hold luggage? - As we'll be staying overnight I will also have my electric toothbrush with me (Oral B, rechargable). Will it be OK to carry this in my hand luggage? - What about my BF's electric/rechargable shaver (no open blades)? - In fact, I'm sure that any electrical items are meant to be carried in hand luggage - is this right? Would it apply to our rechargable stuff (mentioned above)? - I take a contraceptive pill and will be carrying two packs on me in my hand luggage. Will I need a doctors note for these? - Also, will my BF and I need notes from our opticians with regard to our contact lens accessories? - Pens and the like are allowed on the plane, right? - Some of the stuff I will be carrying in my hold luggage seems kind of strange to the untrained eye! The majority of toiletries I will be taking will be from 'Lush'. The body soap and shampoo stuff won't be a problem, but I will be taking a solid deodorant block and some strange looking facial cleansers - are customs likely to rip these open/apart and destroy them?! Or will they see them, roll their eyes, and think 'girls!'? - Are you allowed to carry a brush in your hand luggage? TIA! I know some of my questions seem a bit stupid ('she doesn't know that?!') and strange, but I will greatly appreciate any answers you can give me! I'm sure I'll be back with more before the week is up!
