Here are my top 10 situations that I fear when travelling.
the passenger behind me indelicate clinging to my seat fifty times (at least!) when he gets up to walk the aisle during the flight from Singapore / Paris, and which sometimes clings to my hair the way ...

the restaurant that lets you check for its tempting menu, when making the order you list everything that is no longer available in the kitchen (70% of the card and all you want!) ...

the hotel telling me that our room was not reserved when we land in the depths of nowhere in the Cantal (and the hotel is full, otherwise it would not be funny) ...

Air France agent who sheepishly told me that my Paris / Marseille is overbooked when I arrived straight from Johannesburg and I dream of returning home at last (result, a day to hang out at the airport ) ...

my head on the photo identification required by U.S. authorities for the ePassport: Close-ban smile, forehead and ears emerged, a horror! Even under torture I do not show it! This time we all look like potential terrorists! ...

lack of space for luggage in the TGV. The designers imagine that the passengers would take the TGV as you take the subway, with only one handbag ...

the airline that ships 15 to 20 kilos of luggage per person on a diving destination: a joke-it?! ...

the passenger's flight Boston / Paris just laugh like a rattle with his buddies installed behind me and just when I fell asleep on the night flight. I wanted to gag her with her ​​scarf and hang on a hook in the bathroom of the business, and I was not the only ...

O slamming ten meters below the surface, when your buddy is already far ahead and you hear your exhaust air to the speed of sound in big bubbling on your neck while you have been waiting for this dive finally discover your first pygmy seahorses! ...

the hostess that overzealous, advising my small backpack (with camera equipment) and carrying case my PC tells me that one of the two will spend two and half hour flight over northern Greenland in the hold! (And I did not let her do the PC spent the flight in the cabin of the hostess) ...

GPS for the car that makes you go around in circles because he is unable to take into account the work that clutter the city for nearly three years! ...

the hostess Annone mechanically " chicken or beef? "and without waiting for your answer you off the authority of beef because there is more chicken! And in the same vein, I would like to stop wanting to force my hand when I refused the wine on my plate: I do not drink wine, I do not fill my bag with miniature bottles of alcohol and I have no need of defilement, even in flight! ...

the new diving mask that continues to fog up when you have tried everything (toothpaste on the glass, anti-fog product, saliva, dishwashing, etc. ...) and with contact lens rinsing mask is a random operation - 25 meters ...

the restaurant side of the world and in which, hungry (e), you rush to enjoy tropicalités small, you end up with a menu that offers six pizzas to choose from! ...

coverage of air that smells of vomit sometimes when you unfold! It's disgusting and I am about to offer me a shawl to wrap myself up like a mummy in an ocean of freshness well for me ...

the radar that you stupid flashes at the exit of yet another tunnel around Monaco for a difference of 2 km / hour! While I'm talking radar, too much swearing against speed limits anarchic waltzing from 130 to 110, then 70 back to 90 before falling to 50 (of work) and back to 110, all in less than four minutes , and at night! Try to keep a speed less than that authorized in these conditions! ...

the boss who rolls on the mechanical dive boat, showing off hardware and combined high-tech, and who a few minutes later, smashing corals at each stroke of swollen calf Nitrox ...

chocolate pies (one of my little foibles) that have only the name in 98% of restaurants around the world! Please gentlemen cooks, do an internship at La Maison du Chocolat to know what a real chocolate pie (and Easter is ) ...

the mattress protector rubber slipped between the mattress and the fitted sheet in some hotels that want a little too cautious: I like sleeping on a diaper and the smell of rubber disturbs my sleep! ...

roosters around the world who themselves hoarse at any time of day and night around the world: I guarantee that cocks do not sing at dawn, but rather in the dark! ...

the dive which makes the walk-jerk under water for ages and who does not want to budge: after the fifth dive with him (and usually three on the same site) I want to make him swallow his tuba and ask how much it pays the octopus that tickles every day in the same place ...

unconscionable that the perfume in the bathroom late night flight, just before the breakfast service: ladies, your perfume is personal, do not force passengers to 400, and see how he does not conceal the shower you have not been able to ...

the taxi driver who asked me fifty questions from the airport to the device, all to achieve " your husband and he does what ". And it feels subtle ...

spend four weeks in Bali and not find a single day in order to do a little shopping! ...
