Full body scanner. Backscatter x-ray image of TSA Security Laboratory Director Susan Hallowell A full-body scanner is a device that detects objects on a person's body for security screening purposes, without physically removing clothes or making physical contact.

Depending on the specific technology, the operator may see an alternate-wavelength image of the person's naked body, or merely a cartoon-like representation of the person with an indicator showing where any suspicious items were detected. For privacy and security reasons, the display is generally not visible to other passengers, and in some cases is located in a separate room where the operator cannot see the face of the person being screened.

Unlike metal detectors, full-body scanners can detect non-metal objects, which became an increasing concern after various airliner bombing attempts in the 2000s.

McCormick is my kind of traveller. Her enthusiasm for the places she visits is infectious and you can’t help but conclude that she’d be a fun person to travel with. She got the travel bug in college and has found a way to make a living out of her wanderlust. McCormick has lived in three U.S. states plus Argentina, Japan, Spain and the U.K., but says she’s now settling down in New York.

We spoke to her this week about her favourite places, how she balances family life with her nomadic lifestyle and how she landed her dream job. Where did you grow up?

Recently I watched the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, mainly for the fact that it features Bali, plus the other two places it covers – Italy and India, are another two destinations that I would love to go to (watch this space!).

The Globe-Trekking Gecko

Watching the scenes in the movie that were in Bali took me straight back to that humidity, the overwhelming sights and sounds, and the fragrant smells of the incense. There is one scene where they feature an island, and I swear it’s the same one that I went to when we went snorkelling in the coral reef. Of course, I could be totally wrong, but that experience of snorkelling there must be one of my favourite highlights of the trip.

We were staying at a quiet seaside hotel in the Banyapoh region of Bali, along the north-western part of the island. It was one of my favourite places to stay because at night the whole place was over-run by geckos! We decided to give it another hour, and eventually set off to the harbour where we would get a boat ride to Menjangan Island. Travel Planning Tools. AdventureBimbling Travel Guides.
