Andy, this had me wondering... have you ever been pulled aside and questioned during the few times youve passed through airports in developed countries? Youve probably seen those border security shows where a lot of the time, genuine people get grilled, and I thought your mission of perpetual travel might raise a few eyebrows.
The developed countries often have a random light that goes off, and they will more thoroughly search me. Being arrogant to police is reciprocated with arrogance, I have never really been hassled in my say 8 times around the planet. The people at airports are doing their jobs, and people that feel guilty, that need to feel guilty, often lie, and make up stories. I just do not know, I find it incredibly hard to imagine having problems with custom. They have take the stuff out,and packed it bad, taped is, and been stupid, but never hassled by Airport people. Land borders can be more complicated.
Generally if you are an honest, transparent, open, and see that airport NEED, absolutely most stop terrorist you will not have problems. There is some myopic problem, that some people cannot imagine why they could be searched, it is contempt for people, no humility.
And, again, I have never been hassled, and I traveled around the planet at least 8-10 times.
Ah, I see. I know of two cases in Australia - a man on disability had pre-paid his accommodation but wasnt judged to have enough spending money for the week was sent back on the next flight to Europe, and another fellow who claimed he was going to rely on the goodwill of others and foraging for food was also turned away from Aus - when customs asked him about spending money, he said something along the lines of If I had a friend wire me $1,000, then after getting through customs, if I were to throw it into the wind, would that make any difference?. I guess your method of travel is a lot more thought out, and you perhaps dont go into any great detail/your lifes story regarding perpetually traveling.
