(Things that should not happen to a good traveller) They are just long enough to read before you fall asleep or reach your destination!The Stairs are Safer. - Staying in a hotel, I realised was much safer, at least I thought so.“I was just getting into bed when all the lights went off.

I was now faced with finding the gun and being able to take the safety catch off in the dark.”Did the Earth Move for you? - This was at the time of the Iran Iraq war.“Driving into Baghdad I was very conscious of the four bodies behind me, and I thought of the film “The Godfather” in which “the hit man” in the back of the car garrottes the person in the passenger seat.”An Offer you can’t refuse.

- A visit to the mountains, where people still live in caves was very informative.‘The cans were flying in all directions. Bullets were not only hitting the cans but were ricocheting off the rocks making a frightening whining sound and of course you could not see where they were going.’Is it Always Like This? - Would this Scottish engineer take to the Arab way of life?“I bravely said, on Alan’s behalf “Alan will have them all now”. Some went in his bottom and others in both arms- Alan was being very brave he did not cry once!”How to Cross a Busy Road - Iran an enlightening but frightening trip‘One of the Brits laughingly said “Bare male arms are exciting to a woman, that’s why all the men wear long sleeve shirts”.

That was the first thing I got wrong, “Next, you must take your tie off, that shows Western decadences” he said’As Dry as the Desert - This turned out to be quite an experience“Concern grew as to what could have happened to them. One of the Indian workers, who spoke Arabic, offered to ring round the police stations and hospitals to try and locate them”.Oh Dear Oman - Do not always trust your secretary‘Her answer was that she could only get our passports from customs if we could prove that we had flights booked to takes us out of the country.

But she couldn’t book flights for us without the passports. This was a chicken and egg problem! How could we do one without the other!’An American’s Story from Nigeria - While staying at the Sheraton Hotel in Lagos, Nigeria, back in July 1986 I was told this story“Our first point of touchdown was heavy and very fast, the aircraft bounced back into the air and came down heavy again I grabbed the levers and frantically put the engines into reverse.”A Likely Story - An order for £100,000 but would they pay!‘As the time got to 11’o clock, so the board changed to 1’o clock.

Terminal 3 was all but deserted, all the café’s had shut and just the odd cleaner walking about. They finally came through customs at 2’o clock in the morning.’A Death in the Village - Travelling with Ghanaian ladies can be very interesting‘Come the morning, I must have got some sleep, as I was woken by a prodding in my side and a hissing noise, when I opened my eyes, I was looking at a goose pecking at my side, behind him were two other geese pecking their way through my sports bag pulling all my spare clothes out onto the floor.
