The most epic travel fails we found this month. Here’s our second installment of ‘What NOT to DO When You Travel’
1. Don’t use your body as a passport.
Guinness Rishi is setting out to be the first to get every national flag in the world tattoed over his entire body. His head and face are reserved for the ‘most important’ flags, while alphabetical order starts at the neck. His obsession to become a human flap-pole isn’t the first, Mr Rishi holds four world records and counting.
2. Don’t funnel beer on a plane.
Believe it or not, there are no laws prohibiting you from bringing your beer bong on a plane – as long as you buy the airlines’ beer. So while it’s not illegal (and indeed may be a good way to get into party mode), a picture of you downing a can of beer inflight might just make you famous.
3. Don’t wear a naughty nun costume in a Christian country -you might get arrested.
In 2009, 17 British tourists were arrested while on the Grecian island of Crete for dressing in “nun attire and naughty lingerie”, according to police. The Catholic Church was apparently NOT amused. Moral of the story? Save your costumes for a party, not church.
4. Don’t take off your clothes on public transportation.
In Tokyo, drunken Japanese business men on trains is almost normal. However being intoxicated and taking your clothes off on public transportation might garner a few unwanted (or welcomed, depending on your level of weirdness) stares and photos. Luckily, Japan is one of the safest countries in the world. Forewarning: DO NOT try this in New York City.
5. Don’t wear this to avoid pickpocketing.
There are better ways to avoid being pick-pocketed besides wearing daisy dukes and neglecting to shave your legs (and ass for that matter). Need a better way to avoid being the victim of a crime? Check our guide to some of the most fashionable money belts of 2012.
