Your worst vacation

Recommended Posts

My worst vacation was in Kauai,Hawaiian Islands. I flew to paradise on earth with his family. My buggage with all the necessary was lost.
It's good that the bungalow and food were paid in advance. I was left without photographs, souvenirs, and could not see the sights, go fishing. Because my cash, my wife decided to put in a suitcase. The only thing left is 135$ in my pocket for 10 days.
When returning and long debates the airline compensated me for losses. But vacation was spoiled.

Describe your worst journey, what happened and where.

Worst one was in Turkey, when we arrived to Istanbul rented a car from Atatürk Airport from a less known company then the original we have booked from the start because they couldn't provide the model we booked only wanted to offer a more expensive twice the price luxury model that also wasn't suited for the trip we planed. So we ended up with the next best thing we could find that turned out to be a scam. We stopped on our way to the hotel at a restaurant to have dinner. While we were in the restaurant they stole the car with all out luggage. We spent the next entire day at the police station filling out forms and complaints and also learned that the company that lent the car didn't cover actual luggage or anything else that didn't belong with the car with insurance. We decided to end the vacation and flew home with nothing but our clothes and a sour memory about Turkey.

Not that much it was only travel kits and clothes that included mainly short stuff that u wear in summer and towels, some chargers and headphones. The usual stuff you carry with you when u travel by plane for a sunny summer holiday for 7 days.

I seeeeeeee.  So that's the purpose of that paper thingy stating what's generally inside. 

I only ride a plane once. So forgive my ignorance :D
