This week we transit FRA airport and I was pulled aside for a bag check, I had a handbag and a roll on bag. I had two baggies of creams/sprays for both of us in my bag, so the security guy asked why the two bags, and I said I am carrying the creams/sprays for the two of us and my husband has my computer. So he went thru my handbag and found a 15ml lip balm - " this should be in the bag !! " He looked in my diary, :oops: my phone was turned off, he opened my money purse, " What are you doing with all this chinese money ??" ME: it not chinese, it japanese yen. :rolleyes: He looked at my camera ! My curling wand, He gave both bags a good going over.

So make sure you have everything in order if transitting FRA !!
