Of course. That's exactly why I said >That is no longer necessarily the case, though individual countries may vary.

The point is simply that small scissors are no longer a blanket no-no in cabin luggage, which was the case at one time and how I read your post. Whether people choose to take them is, of course, entirely up to them. :-)

Henna, your mom is a nurse. Ask her what she would do or what she would bring! ;)

Paracetamol, band-aids (the moist kind), immodiumAD, hydrogen peroxide is about it for us. We've fortunately never needed much of it and any of it can be bought in the places we go. We walk at home so don't get blisters on vacation. I do take a sewing kit but that's for buttons. My husband invariably loses at least one button per trip.

Quoting Borisborough

we had three disposable saftey razors taken by customs when boarding a train from Djibouti to Ethiopia recently.

There's a customs officer who will have a very clean shaven chin for a few days!

Well, actually, I hate to say this but, being thoroughly cheesed off with Mr Customs Man, after he'd been through everything in our bags and asked us to empty absolutely everything so that he could see what we had, once he told us that we couldn't take three disposable plastic razors through the gate, I took them off him, confirmed with him that he wouldn't allow us to take them through, I broke them up into as small a pieces as I could. He didn't look too happy after that!!!

Good job! Although I'm surprised he didn't suddenly invent a special fine or charge for damaging goods...

She will ask me why I am going somewhere where I might need to use first aid kit

But, yeah, she might have some good ideas what to bring if to be honest. We just have just tiny bit different styles of travelling, she likes those All inclusive resorts

I have never had any problems with small scissors but to be honest Thailand might be most exotic place I have visited with hand-luggages only.

And in future I might not have that problem, my brand-new backpack doesn't qualify as an handluggage

Does she think accidents don't happen everywhere?:)
