This Woman's Hilarious Hotel Experience Is Why You Don't Book Based On Photos


Don't travel if you don't have a flexible nature. There's no way to plan anything to perfectly meet your expectations, and often the best adventures we have are the ones we didn't plan at all. It's also important to follow simple safety rules — especially when traveling alone. Like, be aware of your surroundings and doing your research — i.e. cultural norms, customs, how to dress, scams, natural disasters, political climate — before you set off to avoid dangerous situations. 

However, it's still really hard not to be disappointed occasionally. Because even with the most thorough planning, the reality sometimes does not match your expectations in everything from the weather to what you thought you be the most Instagrammable hotel infinity pool in the world.
