Why not go to Mecca wearing only womens underwear?
Or lie down on a corner of a German Autobahn?
Or visit Alice Springs with a t-shirt saying 'Ozzies Are Gay' on it.

Walk down any British small town high street on a Saturday night around 11pm.

Now thats dangerous!

This will make a funny thread if others add their 2 cents.

Here is mine

Go into a pub in Ireland and argue about why you agree that Ireland is a British Isle.

One overheard on a bus in Bolivia:

A Welsh girl said to an Israeli guy she was talking to that 'Britain owns Australia and nothing can happen there without the Queen giving the ok first!'. The Australian guy sat across the aisle from us looked at us, shook his head and laughed. Reply to this

I was out one night and I met an Iranian guy. He kept bringing up things about Iran in the conversation. I think he was trying to bring up the women thing and tell me that he does not agree with the lack of womens rights situation in Iran, so I would like him. I was not in the mood for talking about this so I kept changing the subject. Later that night after talking about a bunch of other things he walked to my train with me. Then he suddenly blurted out ''Women in Iran are smaller than men. I am sorry''. It sounded like anti political correctness. It sounded like he thought there is something wrong with women being smaller in size. I think he meant that he does not agree with the situation in Iran where women have fewer rights than men do. :D

I'm proofreading a screenplay at the moment for a translator friend of mine. When she asked me what I thought of it I said "Your translation is great, it's a shame the play itself is so rubbish" - at which point she informed me that she had written it herself. Embarrassment is not the word!

It's growing on me now; it's set in a spooky hospital in Azerbaijan, about an evil doctor who steals the brain of one of his staff to transplant into his daughter, who is dying. It has people who morph into each other, and talking shadows... awesome.

A little over a month ago I was traveling with a girl through Boliva. In Copacabana, we were trying to find a microbus to a village called Yampupata.

Frustrated by the 40 different answers we got from locals, we sat down on the curb to rest for a minute. A taxi pulled up and the driver got out. He asked us if we needed a ride anywhere.

The girl, who's Spanish is less than excellent responded, "Yamaputa!" Which sounds the same as "llama puta" Call the prostitute?

Even dark-skinned Andean taxi drivers can turn red 😊 Reply to this

I once asked a pretty girl in a bar in Guatemala "Cuantos anos tu tienes?" - which translates nicely as "How many assholes do you have?" - she quickly replied "solo uno" and went away laughing... don't forget the ~! - I don't think I'm the only one to have done that.

On my first trip to Chile when my Spanish was terrible and my nerves were high, I walked up to the extremely hot LAN Chile flight attendent before a sunrise landing in Santiago. I pointed at my wrist and asked "Que Tiempo hace" (Whats the weather like?) when I meant to say "A que hora" (What time is it?) She looked at me very strangely and said bueno, and I didn't understand until i sat back down in my seat how what I said! Reply to this
