Golden Week Special #3

This is Kutchan station.
I thought this sign said Nyachiku for ages until I released it was written backwards.

This is a map inside the station of part of Hokkaido. We’re here.
And this is today’s question: What is your biggest travel disaster story?

As for my answer, it’s hard to choose my worst travel story because I seem to have been born with the useless traveler gene and I’ve had many, many travel disasters.

One of the most memorable was leaving Thailand to fly back to Japan. I didn’t want to miss my flight, so I arrived at the airport super early and checked in early and went straight to the gate. The gate wasn’t open and I was feeling a little bit sleepy and I ended up nodding off and when I woke up, the plane had gone.
