I cant believe it’s actually happening. This is my first international flight since 2002 when I arrived in New Zealand with my family.
Last time I was on airplane was in 2009 when I was on my way back from the South Island in New Zealand after we just finished filming Malcolm Law’s successful adventurous and phenomenal fundraiser 7in7 Challenge, where he ran the seven great walks of New Zealand in 7 consecutive days, 361km altogether. So I am about to board the aircraft and I forgot that I have survival tools in my hand luggage. Again the last time I traveled before 2009 was in 2002 as I mentioned above. So I completely forgot about the whole security thing and I got stopped by the security search team while my back is passing the X-Ray and they started pulling out items/tools I had from my hand luggage and I counted 12 of them so it was a bit embarrassing and funny to the rest of the queue seeing a little eastern european looking guy getting his bag presenting quite a few tools. Since we were going to the bushes and all great walks are quite remote I thought I will get all tools I need to get by just like Bear Grills from Man VS Wild only way worse prepared version of that. haha
So this time no problems and only laptop and some usb sticks and cables in my hand luggage with my passport and boarding pass.
