I will be transferring through Heathrow on my back to the US from Athens. I was hoping to bring some Greek foods and olive oil back to the US, but the regulations are killing me (well, saving my life, but killing my planning). I realize that I'll have to pack oils (and honey?) in my checked bag, but what about cheese? Does anyone know if the dairy restrictions include dairy products from outside the UK?
And if I do need to put the cheese in my checked bag, won't it go bad over the nearly 20 hours I'll be traveling?
(This is my first international trip, so I'm trying to figure things out)
Oh, and also, does the one bag rule in Heathrow include duty free shopping? If so, that's crazy, because who would have any room in an already small bag to shop???
Thanks for any info! :)
