Share With Me Your Travel Nightmare Story

Summer travel is in full swing and while I love any excuse to pack a suitcase, the actual act of traveling gives me anxiety.

I'm talking about the ride to the airport, the entire airport experience, and then landing, hoping and praying your luggage made it safe and sound to your destination with you. Unfortunately, travel nightmares always seem to happen from time to time to humble us.

So I'm turning to the people of the BuzzFeed Community to ask: what is your worst travel nightmare?

I'll go first: while coming back from a recent trip to Key West, Florida my flight home got delayed 24 hours due to issues with the plane's engine. It was wild and tbh, I don't want to see the inside of an airport anytime soon until I fully recover.

Maybe you were traveling abroad and your luggage went to a completely different country and it took DAYS for you to get it back.

Perhaps while traveling, you got injured and had to spend your entire vacation in the hospital.
