Travel turkeys

Here again, our annual collection of tales about trips gone amiss. We've plucked a few harrowing misadventures.

November 24, 2002

INDIA: The 'chunder bus' was cheap but too disgusting. So they hired a private cab to the Himalayas. Boy, was that a bad decision. Page 10

ITALY: A pox on pain during your dream trip! And an allergic reaction is another bitter pill to swallow, especially when it makes you look like the Pillsbury Doughboy on steroids. Page 10

AUSTRIA: In a clutch, don't count on a shiftless little Eastern European car. But it's all downhill from there, thanks to a wife's common sense. Page 11

WYOMING: Ah, wilderness! Looking forward to a few days off, hiking the great outdoors, camping out under the stars. But Mother Nature has other ideas. Page 11

AFRICA: A long, tiring journey from Tanzania to Kenya can do strange things to a person. But it was just a small misunderstanding. Page 13

EASTER ISLAND: Falling for a stray dog leaves him hanging off a volcanic cliff in the South Seas. But the pooch wasn't this man's best friend. Page 13
