Do you have an embarrassing story that occurred during one of your travels? Its place is here! :D Do not hesitate to share it so that others could laugh on....not on, but with you! :P
We walked for about an hour in the mud when we found a sign reading “Stonehenge 2 miles”. We cursed for a few minutes then continued. After another hour we met with a father and his three or four year old son walking. They appeared from the middle of nowhere. We asked them how far Stonehenge is. They answered “2 miles”. After another hour and a half we reached Stonehenge.
It was the end of November so we were all cold and really pissed off. We paid the entry fee then noticed that it is wired and we can’t touch the stones. After a few minutes of watching it one of the Italians spoke up: “Collosseum is prettier”, he said. I started to laugh and learned my lesson for the day: No matter how far you are Stonehenge is always 2 miles away.
And the best thing was, when we got finally our next train, soccer fans on the way back from the game, crowded the train, so that we had to go for hours, crowded like fishes in a can.
At airport check things were really strict back then, following the September 11 attacks and being foreign, they had us open everything up so they can manually check our bags. Needless to say how embarassed we were when the security guy opened one of the bags and the stuffed underwear and bras starting flying around :(
At least they were polite enough to ask if they could frisk you first :)
I just remembered another embaressing/funny moment I had during a flight to Spain. I was flying from Madrid to Valencia, a relatively short flight, yet something went wrong at check-in and I was the only one left without a seat in the plane, despite paying for my ticket days in advance!
I had to sit in the stewardess' cabin for half an hour and they delayed the flight until they could find me a seat, lol. Everyone was looking at me like I was some trouble-maker, probably thinking to themselves I'm the cause of the delay, when in fact it was a screw-up on the airline's part. Oh well, at least I saw how it's like to be a stewardess! (Minus the raunchy remarks from passangers and peanut delivery jokes).
On 2007 we flew to Dublin for the european championship soccer match against Ireland.
At London Heathrow we had an stop for houres. Then, of course too "late" we rushed to our connection flight. We had to stand half an hour in the lane for being checked. When we were checked later, we had nearly to undress ourselves, the guy told us, that we cant take liquid things in our handbagagge with us. I had to run back, to get some of these plastic bags.
When we put everything in, suddenly all was fine.
As if that could have saved the airplaine before a bomb!
