Travel mistakes : tell us yours !

Jump to last reply


Long time I didn't see a quizz or something like that, so I figured we could share some blunders or mistakes that we did when traveling.

We are all well-travelled (like that word, for whatever that means), but we all do mistakes, let us recount some (probably the funny ones, not the embarrasing ones).

A tout seigneur, tout honneur, I'll start

1. I was to meet somebody in Aalborg, Denmark, he gave me the details for the meeting to which I didn't pay attention. So I booked a flight to Denmark : in my mind, DK has only one airport (like Belgium : small country, so ...) therefore I landed in Copenhagen and went into a taxi at about midnight telling the guy I was to go to Aalborg, which he told me in fits of laugh was 400 kms away...

2. I was to meet somebody in US, she told me 'we are close to Boston'. Didn't plan further, arrived at airport, took the car, and then opened a map : the place was 2,5 to 3 hours away ! Close for US people, a looooong way for a Belgian

3. I was at an airport, at say - gate 32 overlooking gate 31 from which my flight departed. I fell asleep whilst waiting and my flight left without me.

I've done worse but won't tell you :-)

So what about you ?
