Chances of things going wrong on-the-go (as well as travel gone nightmare) are usually underestimated.

Overbooking, missed connections, pickpocketing, minor diseases, culture shock, lack of communications, home-sickness, poor orientation, lost baggages, delays and cancellations are well-known these days.

Good news are you are unlikely to die because of them. And then come natural disasters, plane crashes, lethal illnesses, unstable countries declaring states of emergency, shipwrecks, incarcerations, human trafficking… With these, you are in real trouble.

* Nearly raped in Cappadocia, twice

* Extremely sick in Morocco

Have you experienced trouble when travelling?
