Countries Visited 55
Worst Metro Glasgow Underground. Tiny as a dollhouse, loud as a jet, and it only goes around in a circle.
Worst Airline Policy Charging for water. You can’t take your own through security, yet SAS, Ryanair, and countless others charge €3 for it. Pure trap-and-gouge.
Worlst Flies Australia’s Northern Territory. They’ll literally drink the water off your eyeballs.
Worst Maps Tokyo. You need an engineer’s degree to find the washroom in some malls. Out on the street, addresses are nonexistent.
Worst Street Crime Johannesburg. At the hostels, they don’t gather at night to talk about what they saw that day. They discuss who got mugged.
