Can't even imagine.

While flying to Bali, our plane caught fire mid flight and we had to make an emergency landing. I honestly thought I was going to die.


I was 27, in Italy, and had a much older man stalk me back to my hotel after he tried to crack onto me. Creeped the hell out of me.

What are friends for?

Got roofied in Amsterdam during my younger years. I am so lucky I had a friend with me. I can't imagine what may have happened!


Someone tried to kidnap me when I was about 3 in the middle of the night at a hotel. My parents heard me outside the door, and I would only tell them that I didn't like that man.


A Greek dude pulled a gun on me from across the roof of our hostel. Worst travel memory of my life!

Worst nightmare level.

While flying, the plane dropped suddenly out of nowhere. The seatbelt lights were off and everyone who was up and walking got hurt including me.
