Log on to titanicawards.com for funniest travel mishaps

By Samyuktha

London, June 19 (ANI): Alternative travel website The Titanic Awards captures some of the funniest travel mishaps such as vomiting air travellers and urinating sculptures.

The site has now uploaded a video on YouTube featuring the worst baggage handlers, the roughest cruises and the longest toilet queue ever.

The site's editor Doug Lansky looked at hours of online footage before creating the montage.

Lansky started the site because he was tired of travel writers presenting an idealised view of destinations.

He says on his website that travel writers "often feel obligated to sell a destination. Either they believe that making the reader want to go there is a sign of literary success or they have taken free trips," reports Sky News.

He adds: "If you eliminate all critical reviews for one reason or another.

"Travel is getting an exemption from journalism and what you're left with can be hard to distinguish at times from travel brochures."

Readers of The Titanic Awards website are invited to send in pictures, footage and nightmare travel stories for entertainment.

Amongst the funny scenarios the public can vote for are the most annoying tourists, the rudest waiters and the worst airports. (ANI)
