Packing for business or pleasure

Years ago, a family member whom traveled over sea's extensively offered me this simple, yet practical packing tip.

1. When packing underwear, put them in a ziplock bag. This will allow Customs (if any of you had this privilage) to go through your clothes BUT with a ziplock bag, officer and youself won't be embarassed with your "brief" moment.

2. Think everyone does know this tip, but here it is anyway. Roll your polo shirts, pants and such if using a garment bag.

    ROFLOL. Your 'brief' tip needs no visual aid, but prompts a question.  Where you thinking of packing 'ziplocked briefs' for business or pleasure?  Either way, who said 'travel tips' had to be humorless.

    TJC,

     

    Should have seen the Customs officer hold my zip lock brief bag and was gently squeezing it, to which I replied, you are thoroughly enjoying this aren’t you. He looked beat red and said, all is fine, here is your bag. I wish I had my camera with me, YouTube in minutes!

    That incident occurred a few years ago, ~ 5, at the Omaha airport. I find it interesting that the larger airports don’t do this more, but that the smaller regional airports DO this a lot more.
