I think we can all agree that, although reading about easy, predictable travel experiences can be okay if you intend to have a similar one, the most entertaining travel articles are the one where things don’t go as planned. It’s true! We enjoy hearing the tales of a travel blogger who went through unexpected trials and adventures, and came out alive, much more than hearing about the Joneses’ trip to Disneyland.
