9 Holiday Mishaps

30 July 2014

Who doesn’t love that feeling that hits you once your bags are packed and that holiday you have been waiting for so patiently is finally upon you? Sadly, on every adventure I go on there’s always...

...SOMETHING that goes horribly wrong from airport screw-up’s to the moments I end up diving head first into a pool of embarrassment! Here are the 9 holiday mishaps I wish had never happened: 


1. Burnt to the core 



Snoozing in the sun is one of my favourite things to do when on holiday, until I wake up and realise I’m burnt to a crisp and covered in tan lines. 

2. Peep Show



We all like a dip in the pool to cool off, however, most people seem to manage to keep their clothing on. Somehow I end up returning to my sun lounger only to realise my bikini top has decided to remain floating in the pool. 

3. Lost In Translation

I always have hope that my luggage will be next on the carousel and my bag will finally arrive. Naturally, given my luck, on one special trip the airport decided that my bags should visit the US whilst I was in Spain. 

4. Crash, Bang, Wallop
Renting a car to view the beautiful surroundings sounds like a good idea on holiday doesn’t it? Driving on the wrong side of the road into a head-on collision doesn’t, note to self about which side they drive on in Europe. 

5. Picture Perfect



The picture in the brochure almost always determines my choice of hotel. What a picture doesn’t tell you is that the hotel is in a period of refurbishment and your sea view is actually a construction site. 

6. Holiday Trip



I like to think we have all had this moment of utter embarrassment, one minute we’re up, and all in one slippery motion... BOOM! We’re flat on our arses praying nobody saw… Well everyone did!

7. Sex on the Beach



I’m not talking about the cocktail if you catch my drift… Sand and those body parts truly do not mix!

8. Passport Pocket
I’ve always wanted to do white-water rafting but doing it with your passport in your pocket was never a good idea. Somewhere down the Colorado River you will find my passport!

9. Walk of Shame

I don’t just mean the walk to the pool in the morning after a heavy night of drinking. I mean the romantic stroll along the beach with the sea breeze blowing up your skirt revealing everything to the world!
