Attempting to carry off my own luggage was a huge fiasco as I wound through the aisles and aisles of people with luggage. I thought I would save time but I was exhausted by the time I got to Customs. Now I keep a small carry-on and let the baggage go down the night before. Retrieval is simple and organized and/or a porter is available to help you.
Not sure is this qualifies as a mistake but, I was trying to make my way through Customs and while the guy was checking my Declaration form, a the lady in front of me asked if I would be so kind to hold her pass port while she stuffed her purse. She moved on while I was answering the Customs dude questions and stuff her pass port into my lap top back pack. Nine hours later after arriving home, I noticed I had her pass port.
