My starter's first international voyage!
I'm moving in about ten days, and I'd like to bring my starter along with me. I'm not exactly moving across the street though, and I was wondering if anyone has experience with travelling on airplanes with their starter. I also have the idea that it may not be 100% legal to do so, but I've got a good starter going here that I know well, and I'm really interested to see how it reacts and changes in a new environment (I'm moving from northern Italy to Rio de Janeiro). I'd also hate to have to wait until I got another one going before baking some sourdough bread!
So in summary, my questions are essentially does anyone know what kind of regulations I may encounter, and the best way to pack it either way? Also, with the extremes in temeprature it may encounter for example in the baggage hold of the airplane, in what kind of shape can I expect to find it when I arrive? I'm completely fine if I have to smuggle it in a shampoo bottle or something in my checked baggage.
