By Antoine Demortier | French | Kuala Lumpur | Malaysia | January 15, 2020
I call my sister who travel all around the world. "I can join you in Myanmar!". Answer: "Ok cool, do you have your visa? It's a month away." First flop ... Too late to do it in France, I decide to do it on arrival as I have seen it sometimes. I get off during my stopover in Kuala Lumpur. I go to the Myanmar embassy in this city. Surprise! Hundreds of people in a concrete courtyard surrounded by a wall embellished with barbed wire. To accentuate this crazy vision, guys who break stones in the middle, a real penitentiary in the far west! New flop, nothing is written in English, I wander in this bizarre embassy. Finally a man understands me a little. He sends me to a travel agency at the other end of town. For a few tens of euros my visa will be ready the next day. Flop again, my bank card sends a confirmation code to my local N-C numbers. I find a solution... I call my mom, best joker ever, I pay my visa and take a new ticket of plane to continue my journey. My sister, not sure if I arrived or not, started her trip to Myanmar. When I arrive, she is not here anymore ?. I'll try to find her, but that's another story, or a TFP ?.

Melbourne in the night. I was drunk but not too much. I was walked on the street with my bootle of whisky without the paper bag (In Australia, it's forbidden). Police caught me and they gave me 3 fines! For "Alcohol advertising", "Alcohol consumption on the public highway" and "Drunkenness on the public highway". As says N.W.A: FUCK THA POLICE! TFP

I want to go around the island. The weather is good, I decide to walk without shoes. After one hour, other side of the island, the ground is fucking HOT and there is no shadow anymore. Each step is painful. I am waiting in a small shadow area, looking for a solution. I see a local man, I ask him to buy his flip-flop, he refuses, I increase the price, he accepts for 10€! for sure, it's his daily wages, great for him TFP!

I am in a nightclub, a little drunk, in Barcelona. The perfect place to practice my English and meet people. I find a pretty partner to discuss, I pay her a drink and after 10 minutes I ask her his nationality. She is French too and... she decides to stop speaking with me, she leaves TFP

In the Spanish Pyrenees, I hike, darkness falls. In order not to be dazzled, I use a red lamp to look at my card. I take a shortcut on the map. After a while I find myself facing a huge climb! You cannot see the contour lines of a map in red light. These damn lines are red. TFP
By Melissa | French | Australia | Melbourne | March 3, 2020
Haven’t read correctly my travel ticket. Arrived 1 day after the written date. My host family came the day before, of course I wasn’t there as I was on the plane. Arrived at Melbourne airport, no host family to pick me up... because they came the day before. Always make sure you consider jet lag in your plan parameters. TFP

Berri. I camp in front of the lake. It's the storm of the year. Each minute, I hear a thunderclap with gusts of winds over 100km/h. Suddenly BAM! The wind has broken my tent, metal rods are broken. I am staying under my crushed tent until the morning. Best night ever! TFP

It's time for a road trip of 6 months in South America!

I was in Mendoza with a friend, we decided to go to Potrerillos for one day, one night. The day after, we learnt that there was no autobus because it was a public holiday in Argentina. But we had a plane the afternoon to go to Iguazu. Panic! We did hitch hiking and we arrived just in time... TFP

I am in the toilets of a museum. I understand after pooping that there is no paper... Nowhere and there is nobody. I want to send a message to my friend who are visiting the museum, there is no network. I use the copy of my ID to clean myself. I used my own face to clean my ass. TFP.
By Romy | French | USA | Fort Lauderdale | March 3, 2020
On my way to Managua in Nicaragua, I got arrested and locked in a room at the US borders for a problem with my Esta. They kept me in for 21 hours with only water and cereal bars to eat. The next day they sent me back to France after a 9h stopover in Oslo. So I travelled from Friday morning to Sunday night for... Nothing.
