I have often discovered that things can go incredibly wrong when traveling. I find myself stuck in elevators, breaking everything I touch, occasionally missing a flight or train, and always getting lost. To those of you whom have never had any of these happen, I commend you. I also question how much you have actually traveled. If you are telling me that nothing has ever gone wrong while abroad then I will tell you one of two things. Either you are the luckiest person in the world, or you are a big fat liar.
The truth is life happens, which means shit does too. However, there is one thing that I have discovered that helps when things go astray—laugh. And so my friends as you browse through my misfortunes, I invite you to indulge yourself with snickers, chuckles and giggles. You might also learn a thing or two about what not to do when in a foreign country. Good luck to you, and happy travels!
