10 Gifs That Flawlessly Sum Up Travel Expectations vs. Reality

There is a very high bar that we tend to set for our travel journeys. The perfect picture we paint in our mind usually is not how the trip actually ends up.

1) Every moment will be an action packed adventure

 

Expectation:

bridesmaids

You have to make the most out of every single moment!

Reality:

bridesmaids-2

You’re not 19 anymore. You should know your limits by now.

 

2) Plan for total relaxation

 

Expectation:

the-office-2

You’re going to have the most relaxing time! Not a single worry in the world.

Reality:

the-office

Something always goes wrong. Expect it. Embrace it. Learn to thrive off of disaster. 

 

3) Nailing the perfect selfie with an exotic animal

 

Expectation:

Animals love strange people in their face! Right?

Reality:

Wrong.

 

4) Chatting with the locals

 

Expectation:

parks-and-rec-leslie

You’re going to meet so many new people and create lifelong friendships!

Reality:

parks-and-rec-ron

Then again, maybe just enjoy the solo aspect of your solo trip.

 

5) Finding romance on your trip

 

Expectation:

how-i-met-your-mother

Meeting the love of your life always happens on public transportation. That’s what every romantic comedy has taught us.

Reality:

how-i-met-your-mother-gif2

Formulate your escape plan to ditch this fantasy romance. This is your trip.

Even though your trip might not always go as planned, it usually ends up being better than imaged.
