My sister turned up last week with a 2.5 litre bag in the box wine in her case....! That got through fine! It was against my advice though!

Thanks Vantage - That was pretty close to what I'm looking for and within my skill level.

Thanks Sammylou, and I was wondering about the supplements/vitamins as well. I'm sure I'll be able to find most everything I want or need in Dubai eventually, but I'm also sure it will take some time to get my bearings and find stuff. Maybe I will bring a box of Red Rose to help me settle in.

i think maybe if you were bringing in a a whole case of preserves or perishables or like 8 loaves of homemade banana bread you might get asked some questions.

I have a feeling my luggage will be overweight on this first trip, so I won't have extra room for requests . My husband practically drinks the stuff.

However... if you want to organize a friendly networking brunch w/pancakes for a couple of new arrivals some time in August, I may be able to supply the maple syrup!

Default strong mints

Any tip on where to find very strong lozenges/mints, like this one for example Throat Lozenges for Sore Throats and Coughs | Fishermans Friend ?

I can't find any, and brands like "Halls" here are watered down and don't carry the same strong taste.

I thought you can get fishermans friend almost everywhere. Have you checked the pharmacy sections in supermarkets and pharmacies elsewhere?
