32 Epic Vacation Fails

Published 9 months ago

Going on holiday is exciting because it feels like anything can happen. You’re in another country, you’re living your best life so you decide to do something different, adventurous and obviously capture it for ‘the memories’. But sometimes, the reality can be far different to the expectation.

The gallery below consists of candid shots of people who went on holiday but ended up in a vacation fail. While some are hilarious others might be considered somewhat devastating. But indeed, good humour counts for half the fun so if most of these pics are any indication, the epic memories from these vacations are anything but a fail.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
