Weird Travel superstitions

Check out these famous travel landmarks that are said to bring good luck and fortune if touched correctly.

We travel for various reasons, it may be that you just want to explore a certain country or culture. Sometimes we travel for work or as part of our studies but whatever the reason for travel there is always one common factor - having fun.

Having fun during our travelling means capturing and keeping these memories alive but we hardly ever expect to get disappointed with a hotel room or food at the restaurant.

Travel review website and agencies can help a great deal when planning a holiday and avoiding the pitfalls - but we've found a few that are simply hilarious and takes complaining to a totally new level. Take a look at these 15 funny excerpts from various travel reviews found across the web.

1. "We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

2. "There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad."

3. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."

4. "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England it only took the Americans three hours to get home."

5. "We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish."

6. "My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.”

7. "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels."

8. "The beach was too sandy."

9. "Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."

10. "No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."

11. "I was bitten by a mosquito, no-one said they could bite."

12. "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."

13. "On my holiday to Goa in India , I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."

14. "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."
