When we plan our holidays, we plan them to the tiniest detail. We always hope to have a nice and relaxing trip and we do everything we can to prevent or dodge any incidents. However, we can’t control everything so we have to change our plans “on the fly” to avoid any unnecessary risks and troubles. At best those problems can only annoy us, but they can also ruin the entire vacation.
We have collected some of the most interesting stories about road trips and holidays from all over the Internet. Enjoy!
So, I’ve always wanted to go to Brazil and my friend went there last year. As soon as he arrived there, he was warned about the crime rate in Brazil and even told to avoid beaches at night because of numerous youth gangs. However, he didn’t want to listen to those warnings. And here is what he told me, “Right from the first day, I overdid with sunbathing. I burned my skin and it hurt like hell. That is why I decided to go swimming at night because the water is still warm even though there is no sun. When I arrived at the beach, I was immediately surrounded by a group of “young criminals”, or thugs – to be more precise. They started yelling at me, and they took my T-shirt. However, this didn’t stop me from returning to the beach the next night. Once more, the same thugs surrounded me, but they didn’t take anything. On my third visit, they waved at me, on my fourth they even gave me back my T-Shirt. On the fifth night, we had a drink together. On the sixth, I brought the guys some REAL alcohol and a couple of “six-packs”. In the end, they didn’t want to let me go back to my hotel alone. They drove me to the hotel in their “thugmobile” which was followed by an entire group of scooters and mopeds.
