Let’s face it; we’ve all been there. Sometimes no amount of planning can combat a travel hiccup. But the important thing is to remember the lessons so you can hopefully avoid a similar fate in the future.
Granted, I haven’t found myself stranded in the middle of a country (except that time when I was 8, had no money and no phone, and was on a school trip to the Netherlands…) and luckily I’ve never been mugged or a victim of a tourist crime – so in that sense, my holiday hiccups aren’t all that extreme. But chances are, I’m betting a few people out there have done something similar.
I hope some of these stories make you laugh – or gasp – and I hope you’re able to learn from them so you don’t make the same mistake.
