The Blogging Bomber?

May 13, 2006

Sitting in a Internet Cafe on the Gold Coast and already I’ve got my first weird travel story.

Last night at Perth Airport I was pulled aside and….scanned for explosives!

It was 11:30pm so I was in a bit of a daze anyway. I walked through security, no problems, then I get pulled aside by a butch female security guard. She starts pointing at some sign and saying did I know what was going on. I thought I was going to get surveyed or something. Nup, some weird looking strip of paper was wipped over my clothes, then put into a machine. Naturally the result was negative, but I’m off to get a hair cut now because obviously I must need one if I look so scruffy as to need explosive screening! 🙂
