It’s Monday again, and I felt you needed a chuckle from a pretty funny travel instance I had in New Zealand. When I say instance, I actually mean a REALLY big blonde travel moment.
I happened to be wandering around Wellington aimlessly as I would most days, examining all of the interesting modern art and unique buildings that make up the wonderful capital.
As I was wandering the harbor for the first time, I suddenly found myself face to face with a dragon. Yes, I say “dragon” because that is the first thought that passed through my head when I looked up from my iPhone and saw this below.
“Woah, cool” I probably blurted out, and like a true quick draw tourist I whipped out the digital camera and snapped a photo. I even remember thinking, “What an odd place to have a dragon sculpture.” But no matter, it was cool looking and I wanted some photos of it.
And as I was snapping photos, a whiff of something foul snuck up into my nose.
“What the hell is that smell?” I thought to myself, and I wondered if another tourist had stopped for a quick photo as well, and a quick fart as they walked away. I’d do something like that and laugh about it later.
Then I heard the flush. The noise came firing through the neck and out of the vents, carrying with it that terrible smell.
Then it dawned on me…I had been standing there for the past 10 minutes taking photos of a public restroom.
No wonder why everyone was giving me odd looks!
Have you ever found yourself taking embarrassing photos of something that wasn’t what it seemed?
