10 Painfully Honest Graphs That Show What Travel Is Really Like

Probability of crying babies every single time you fly: VERY HIGH

It always looks so perfect on TV. 

You travel by First Class and sleep through the entire flight, remembered to turn off the coffee machine before leaving, didn’t lose your passport at the security check, didn’t overpay for your five star accommodation, and didn’t face any delays… said no one ever. 

Anyone who travels a lot will know that there are some things, no matter how well you plan, that always happen on vacation. You either forgot something, dropped something, got ripped off with something, or were delayed by something. And it happens every time and sometimes it happens all at once.
