Terrifying Travel Tales

Every journey has a story; every trip has its unexpected twists. Plan and prepare as you may, some things happen on the road that take you out of your element, push you to your limit, and even put you in danger.

These are your terrifying tales, your survival stories from abroad. The tales of triumph over tragedy, when you were in a sticky situation that you had to find your way out of – in another country.

Tell us your Tale

Whether you were scammed out of cash, fell out of a tuk-tuk or your culinary adventures landed you in the hospital, we want to know what happened, how you reacted and what advice you would give to other travellers about how to avoid or survive the situation.

Can two people submit the application as a team and use an outside video editor who is a non professional to assist in post production?
