There are a few reasons why packing light is superior. The first reason is so that you can avoid waiting for your luggage to pop up on the conveyor belt, easily saving you 30 minutes. The second reason is the anxiety that I avoid, as I worry that my luggage was left on the air strip.
Some of you might think I’m just being paranoid, but on our trip to DR, I was looking out the window, and it just so happened that they were loading luggages. I saw that they actually left a luggage behind. The luggage looked really familiar, but I decided not to say anything until we landed as we could do nothing about it being left behind. Turns out it was one of our travel mates luggages. So they ended up having to wait a day without a change clothes until they shipped it back to our hotel in DR.
Sometimes I hate it when I’m right.
