We could spend hours talking about the awesome experiences that come with a life full of travel. We could talk about breathtakingly beautiful countries, stunning sunsets, exotic foods and wonderful people. But that wouldn’t be very realistic, would it?
When you travel all the time, just like with anything else in life, some things are bound to go wrong. That’s what we call Travel #FAIL! Disgusting places, events that took a wrong turn, people we’ve met on the road who are absolutely bananas… it’s all part of the experience!
Some of our best (in retrospect)
TRAVEL #FAIL moments:
When our carnival celebrations landed us in hospital…
When we lost $7 but sort of kept our pride
When we spent the night at the Addams Family House (YIKES!)
When a cheap-ass motel taught us the meaning of poo aromatherapy
When we decided to drive +1000Km in one day and the police had to come and rescue us…
When we had testicle-flavored paella for dinner
When we ate durian for the first time and learnt what it feels like to fart through your mouth (YUCK!)
When the Indian consulate treated us like sh*t and wouldn’t process Zara’s visa!
SOMEWHERE UP IN THE AIR
When a Turkish Airlines flight included stinky feet, monstruous snooring and rude service
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger (or more careful?)
So many people post about the glamorous side to traveling, it’s nice to see when someone is also keeping it real. Love the idea of travel fails!
Thanks for joining us on the dark side, Gessell! ;)
yup… agree with you… hope so many people will read this….
The Title itself triggering myself to read what it is says ??? Its creative…

No one wants to share such experience as you have. But there is always a lesson from every failure and yours failure experience will help many other travelers to avoid to do such things before they get stuck in a bad situation.
All the best for upcoming journey.
