Hello my dear friends! πŸ€—

In 3 days i am going on a dream holiday...
πŸ˜„ to the Canary Islands. Hubbers and myself & 2 of our best friends, are going for 2weeks. πŸ˜‰all good so far...right? I have not left the UK for over 14 yrs now... so im so happy πŸ€—to be so lucky 🐴to be going! Its going to be fantastic!πŸ˜€ And i hope to post some really gorgeous pictures of my trip... so we can share the beauty πŸ€—... that being said... the big handπŸ– of reality has struck me again...😲

Ok so i have to carryπŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸ’Š my medications thru customs...( Fentanyl being my worry)... πŸ€”with nothing more than a doctors letter! 😲 Im feeling like customs will be a nightmareπŸ˜’ as all my medication for 2weeks only... fits in a hold all on its own! πŸ€—

Hey ho... i will let u knowπŸͺ how it goes on Saturday!
I thought i would be anxious about flying... 🐫nope...nada... 🐴but customs...is another ball gameπŸ€—

Definitely a time to be able to revitalise and relax in a warmer environment, the hot sun on the muscles is one of my favourite feelings...πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
I know you'll have a great time, and 14 years since last being abroad.....definitely time to let loose πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸ’…πŸΎπŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΎ

...have a fantastic trip. Make sure your leave the medication in the original packaging from the pharmacy... See your pharmacist to get medications relabelled as required. As long as you have the dr letter and medication with your name on it you'll be fine. Can't wait to see your tropical photos : )

Have a great trip. Can you call the airline ahead and let them know you have a disability/illness and need a lot of meds that could give you a problem in customs? Maybe they could help. Does your Dr.s note including your illness/s and what's prescribed for it?

Sep 07, 2016 6:21 PM

JAHMAC, I just KNEW you'd pick up on that one.. LOL!!!πŸ«πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚

Hi - I've been travelling quite a bit with some super heavy Meds too! CHCHKiwi is right - pharmacy bottles and labels, doctors letters PLUS I always declare that I have them - not only do you get through faster 9 times out of 10 they wave you through, that one time the doctors letter was all that I needed! And that's travelling through Asia!

Sep 08, 2016 3:59 AM

ThanQ all πŸ€—for ur words of encouragement... πŸ˜™ i have 🐫assisted disability 🐫what-cha-mi-call-it...🐴 and letter from my doctor...πŸ€” and yes i will be declaring hehe... i am getting excited now... 2 sleeps to go! πŸ˜™

Fingers crossed 🐴😚

Damn!!!! I'll cross everything I can for you. Even my eyes!!!😳

Sep 08, 2016 9:07 AM

As long as it's all in original packaging with the pharmacy label still on, you have a doctor's letter and it is better if you have called in advanced to tell them. You will be fine. Promise. ❀❀

Lulabel, forgive me if I'm wrong but aren't the Canary Islands part of the EU?
