Traveling is not as much fun as it use to be. You pay so much for everything and anything. The cost of getting fed is much higher because even a bottle of water is almost as expensive as a can of soda. As for traveling light, well it's really the way to do it. You don't have to worry about waiting for your luggage, just in case there's a delay, you could actually get re booked because you have not luggage to worry about. The only issue about carry on is that there's a weight limit and of course all the liquid regulations. As my daughter reminded me when I travel, just bring important items, like prescriptions, glasses, etc. The rest of the things you need, you can always buy it at your destination. Lately there's more and more rules when you go through the security check. Although sometimes it is so inconsistent. Some airports would ask you to take off your shoes/footwear and others don't care. Sometimes even the same airports would have a rule in place one month and the next time you go through the same airport, it has change. Yes, I agree that they have to change rules to accommodate the latest threat, but some traveler told me once that the smaller airports have tighter security procedure. Even with all of the above, people still have to get from point A to B and until we can all just fly like birds, we will have to suck it up and do it.
