Hello there! March is here and I am happy to announce that my domain, msmeetingadventures.com is celebrating its 1st year in the cyberspace. Yey! In line with this celebration, I decided to start a month-long series of epic and funny travel misadventures to give tribute to my first blog post and the birth of Ms. Meeting Adventures. Without further adieu, here’s the first part of this “Travel Misadventure series” featuring travel bloggers all over the world and their epic travel fails.

A “shitty” plane encounter

Visiting friends is always a reason to celebrate. Over the years my visits to a buddy in Los Angeles have taken this to the extreme, often resulting in missing flights home the next morning. This year, however, was destined to be different.
Instead of our usual antics, we bought some In and Out Burger and settled in for the night – with a lot of beer. We ate and drank ourselves into the wee hours of the morning, got a little sleep, and were awoken by the three alarm clocks we set the night before.
We hopped in the Jeep and he drove me into the airport. The hangover wasn’t bad until I got on the airplane. Once there, my stomach performed a death roll and I knew it was go time. I scrambled for the toilet as the plane was ascending and stayed there for the next hour as we flew to Las Vegas. The rest is history.
Blessing in disguise

This was one of my disheartening adventures last year when I planned to make a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site, Valley of Flowers in India. I planned the trip in Autumn, but to my surprise, I was disappointed when I reached the destination.The bridge to the valley was broken and shattered to pieces due to heavy rainfall and landslides.There was no other alternative to reach the valley, even the locals would not allow me to go beyond the safety zone.
I had to turn my way back to the lowland and return from the UNESCO site. But the good thing was that there was another place of great importance in the area, so without wasting much time I headed towards the important Gurudwara of Punjabis, Hemkund Sahib which was 4 km right from the place where I made my way to the UNESCO site.I was quite fortunate to visit the sacred destination and the holy lake inscribing it. Pilgrims can take bath inside the lake after visiting the Gurudwara and seek blessings. Although the journey was a bit disappointing as I could not make it for what I came but was fortuitous to catch a glimpse of the sacred lake and make my trip a success.
