Things you shouldn’t do while visiting other countries.

This lady is really having a bad day and simply is making it worse with her actions. Not the vacation trip that I would want spending time in prison however while in a foreign country I would be a little more tolerant of what their authorities when dealing with them.

A court in Bali, Indonesia, sentenced a British tourist to six months in prison for slapping an immigration officer last year, The Jakarta Post and Sky News reported.

Yikes! Part of me does feel bad for her. 6 months is a long time.

OMG. Forget the slap. She deserved the 6 months just for subjecting that poor guy to her harpy-screeching rant.

Yeesh.

Imagine sitting next to her on the flight back to England all the way from Indonesia?

I thought this was going to be about that crazy British family in New Zealand.

I think she had just be given a $4000 fine for overstaying her visa, and had missed her flight.

I also don't think Auj-e Taqadda represents the average Brit, and her ranting and raving like some entitled SJW is cringeworthy.

LOL - they were gypsy travellers, and not typical Brits.

Although I am not sure if their actions warranted newspaper headlines, they tried to con a petrol station out of a can of red bull and received a parking ticket.

I doubt that it was intentional, but that would be seen as an insult by most Brits.
That bunch may have been travelling on British passports, but in U.K. they’re known as “Irish tinkers” or travellers.
They’re infamous for parking their caravans, (trailers to you), on anyone’s land, private or public, leaving mountains of crap behind, including soiled diapers, and piles of human faeces when they go, and stealing anything that isn’t nailed down.
Imagine if Puerto Ricans had a bad rep, I don’t think that they have one, they seemed okay when I was in San Juan, but imagine if they did.
If a family of them got a little inebriated on a visit to Spain, would you be happy to read about that crazy American family of drunks in Spain?
