“One litre, and no more.” The security guard at the airport security told me as she pulled out a tiny ziplock bag.
I eyed the bag in disbelief. It was half the size of the one I had used to stuff all my toiletries. Despite carefully filling them into multiple mini containers, I had forgotten about the fact that everything had to fit into a 1L bag.
“I thought 1L would be bigger than that,” I said, trying to argue my way through.
“Nope. Either you stuff them all into your checked bag, or you board the plane without them.”
