How to pass through Airport scanners Stress free
I don't know about you but the simplest of things throw me off into panic when I am catching an aeroplane. The main culprit is the body scanners that you have to pass through before you can get on the plane. It’s due to get even worse in England with the introduction of state of the art full body scanners at every airport. These scanners will show everything, they allegedly make you look naked. I for one will be even more nervous, who wants to appear naked to strangers especially the ladies who work with goods detector.
