Travel influencers, magazines, and documentaries may give you the impression that you can go anywhere and be able to take a perfect picture.
Unfortunately, there are forces conspiring against your perfect selfie. Rain, cloudy skies, fog, or crowds are just some of the obstacles that might get in the way of your awesome vacation.
That’s why we compiled a list of these travel fails. We’re sure people were bummed out the moment, but at least they all have a story to tell now.
20. Grand Canyon Fail
It still looks beautiful though!
19. The Totally Straight Tower of Pisa

15. Not The Most Auspicious Paris Visit

14. Great Documentation of This Epic Hike!
13. It Could Be The Top of *Any* Rock
But it was New York City’s Top of the Rock.
I was in New York for the first time in my life. My wife and I spent almost 10 hours on a plane, crossed the Atlantic Ocean and flew 7,500 kilometers. We climbed the top of the rock to enjoy a view of central park. We had only one day in New York and this view will always be with us. from Wellthatsucks
