There are lots of seasoned travelers and expats on this forum, so I know there have to be some great "travel mishap" stories to share.
This past week, I was supposed to go home to Thailand. First, the taxi took me to the wrong airport. I got to the right airport but missed my flight by 10 minutes.
I paid 25KD to get on the next flight to DXB, which should have gotten me there with time to spare, but it was delayed over an hour, and I missed my connection by 3 minutes and had to turn around and come back to Kuwait. My next opportunity to go home is at year's end.
Surely, you have a story that is worse, funnier, more tragic than this.
Share! Misery loves company.
