Your Funniest Travel Experience
Anything with a youth group I think lol. In 2002 I went to Festival Manchester with the youth group I was part of, on the first day one of the lads in the tent next door to us decided to try bin surfing – it was one of those big industrial bins that they have in some businesses and he decided to try and use it like a giant skateboard. The stewards weren’t too impressed and he got told off but it was too funny and so were doing our best not to laugh because he was in trouble but couldn’t help it because it was funny.
Next, Turkey – on the last day of the drop I thought I’d show off and did a divebomb into the pool – this was the good bit but then I hit the water. It was so cold! Well I went to get out as quick as I could only to realise that two of the younger girls had jumped in after me and were now freaking out in the pool because it was so cold so rather than get myself out I swam to get them and then to the side – I’m pretty sure my toes were frozen by that point. The others in our group thought it was hilarious and looking back it was funny because of how dumb I was – I knew the water could be cold like it had been all week but who cared I was showing off lol.
