I have a green band that I used when I went to Ireland a few years ago (put around my suitcase). To help find your black suitcase among the millions of others. My question is whether or not this is advisable? Does it bring to much attention to your suitcase?
2nd question: When I went to San Juan last year, I flew to Charlotte where my daughter lives and then we flew the next day to San Juan to pick up a cruise. I had a TSA approved lock on my checked suitcase and when it finally came down into the baggage claim, the lock had been cut off and my suitcase had been totally ransacked and stuff just dumped back in. Unfortunately I had put my camera in and it was stolen. And, yes, I know I shouldn't have done that...I don't know what I was thinking! So...does putting a lock on the suitcase when traveling to a foreign country bring more attention to it? I've never had this problem while flying within the US.
Thanks for all advice!
