Published 4 years ago

One of the most important things when traveling is to take loads of pictures so you can show your friends and family all the cool places you visited and all the fancy food you ate. After all, can you even say you went on vacation if you haven’t uploaded hundreds of photos to your social media pages? But what if the pictures you took just happen to turn out a little… disappointing?

It turns out you can’t always take the perfect pictures you might have seen on the internet before and these people found it out the hard way. Check out all the times people went on vacation and returned with hilariously bad travel pics in the gallery below!

I checked it right away but he struggled enough with the touch screen that I didn’t ask him to take another. I think I was walking toward him to help him with the camera and CLICK. Too late. He was such a nice old man as well. He put so much effort in to trying to work that touch screen. Bless.

#25 10 Years Ago I Climbed The Volcano Of Bali “Mount Agung” 4 Am In The Morning To See The Beautiful Sunrise

Image source: Hollhut

It was the very end of a 9 months backpacking trip, and I skipped an important and beautiful scuba diving lesson to do it. I had to get up at 3 am for the drive to reach the base of the volcano. My best friend and only travel companion at the time was too lazy to join me, leaving me alone with a Balinese guide that knew not a word of English.

We reached the end of the road at around halfway up the volcano with ~1½ hours left of steep hiking on wet rugged rocks.

In silence, the monolingual guide and I accented, and the higher we went, the more I realised how grossly I had underestimated the freezing temperatures at the top of the volcano – Not wearing any jacket at all.

We finally reached the top 15 minutes before the sunrise, inside a dense and moist cloud, giving us with a visibility of 5-10 meters (16-32 feet) and our cloth and skin utterly soaked.

Aušrys Uptas

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?
