Do you have a funny travel story?

I have two funny stories…from one cruise that I took with my husband. He doesn’t like me to tell these stories, but I think they’re too funny to keep to myself…


Cruising TahitiWe were on the Club Med 2 cruise around Tahiti and French Polynesia.

It was the first morning of the cruise and my husband took a shower. Later, he suggested I don’t want to use the soap, it was no good–it didn’t lather.

So, I went to take my shower and thought I’d check out this terrible soap.

Well, it turns out there was a clear cellophane wrapper on it!!!

Yep, the soap was no good. 🙂     

On the same cruise, he bought some swim trunks on the island of Bora Bora.

One afternoon he wore them and we went to a ‘motu’ (a little island made up of nothing but coral and it’s derivatives – sand, limestone boulders etc) where we enjoyed a barbecue and the lovely island scenery.

Well, when we got back into our room on the ship, I happened to notice that the dolphin appliqués were on the back of his swim trunks.

Just as I was asking him if there were dolphins on the back as well as the front of the swim trunks, it dawned on me that he had them on backwards!!!

He then said: “I wondered why the pockets were going the wrong way.”


Do you have a funny travel story to tell? I’d love to hear it.
