Have you ever met travellers who tell you stories that just don’t seem to add up?
Here are three that were told to me:
“We went diving over the Marianna Trench, about 100 miles south of the Acores.” - Canadian tourist in a restaurant in Bangladesh
“And then, our guide thought he’d poke one of the hippos for a laugh. The thing grabs him and pulls him off our skiff. We never saw him again and had to drift along the river until we came to a village.” - Australian tourist on a bus in Nepal
“This is our seventh time to India. You really need to see Kerala, it’s beautiful. (later…) We want to see the South because we never got past Goa last time.” - Israeli tourist in a hotel in India
What whoppers have you heard?
