Shopping: and how to bring it back with you? Spain/Basque/France

Jump to last reply

First, what do you like to buy when you are in these regions?

Second, what's the latest practical approach to getting things you bought onto planes for the trip back? Specifically wine and other delicacies? Cans and jars I assume are best into checked luggage as long as you're not over the weight limit. I can imagine tossing (or shipping) all my clothes in favor of more valuable booty.

When I was in Paris two years ago I brought a small insulated pouch with me -- which ended up being quite handy for day trips and also for shopping at local markets while I was out and about. I was staying in an apartment and for the trip back I bought two blocks of french butter (yum!!) and froze them. Packed a variety of cheeses into my pouch with the frozen butter and put it in my checked luggage. Still frozen when I got home. Success!

Is there a good way to bring wine back on a plane???? I'll be headed back to the US.
