Just curious if anyone has experienced any negatives to packing too light and travelling with only one carry on.
When we were on our first Europe trip and were heading home from Athens, we were asked very directly if that was all the baggage we had for our month trip. I can tell it raised some concerns for the airport official, so after she called someone one else over to discuss, our bags were tagged with some stickers, we got pulled aside and had to wait a long time, re-screened through security, total bag search etc. Our 2 hour pre flight wait was reduced by all the checking, re checking, that we were almost the last people on the plane. Didn't give it much further thought, thinking its just a one-off.
However, since then we've get questions by officials EVERYTIME we go anywhere. We live close to the US border and usually fly from Spokane for all our trips (mexico, europe, us destinations). Just yesterday, we get questioned at immigration coming from Mexico, get questioned again at customs. Crossing the US border, the canadian patrol thought it was unusually, so of course we got are car searched. He made a numerous comments/questions that that's all the luggage we had for a two week trip. Does anyone else experience this?
