30 People Who Traveled Great Distances To Take Disappointing Travel Photos

Published 5 years ago

One of the most important things when traveling is taking as many pictures as you can. Not only will you have something to show your friends and parents, it’s always fun to look back on them as the years go by. But what if you travel hundreds of miles to an exotic location only to find out the beautiful panorama you were hoping to see is completely covered by fog?

None of us like it when it happens but sometimes taking a picture in your dream location is simply impossible. But instead of being sad you should look at the situation from the humorous side – as did these unlucky travelers. From fog-covered mountain tops to renovations on iconic buildings, people are sharing their most unsuccessful travel photos and they’re hilariously disappointing. Check them out in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
