Hilarious travel complaints

Source: Sa Migration, 10/10/2017

We all know these travellers. They’re the type that really want to get away from it all, but honestly don’t deserve the privilege. Thankfully, their ridiculous complaints, compiled by Klaudia’s Corner, make for a great pick-me-up on a Monday. 1. ‘They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.’ 2.‘On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.’ 3.‘We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.’ 4.‘We booked an excursion to a water park but no one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.’ 5.‘The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.’ 6.‘We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.’ 7.‘It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time " this should be banned.’ 8.‘No one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.’ 9. ‘I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.’ www.sami.co.za
