Share Your Vacation Horror Stories With ATC!
NPR’s All Things Considered is looking for your vacation horror stories!
Perhaps you are one of the lucky ones, and you’ve never had your holiday plans spoiled by unforeseen events: bad weather, misplaced reservations. But if you haven’t been so lucky, then you may have…Vacation horror stories. Nothing tragic, just a cascade of annoyances, a series of unfortunate happenings that ruined a holiday dream but with the passage of time made a swell story.
Such a story was told in the movie “National Lampoon’s Vacation.” That’s the 1983 film about the Griswold family on a disastrous cross-country drive to a theme park.
If you’ve had an experience like the Griswolds or been sent to Dakar instead of Dacca by an airline mistake or found your tropical honeymoon trip ruined by a volcano, discovered your rental cabin inhabited by squirrels, then write to us and tell us your story.
You can do so by going to www.npr.org and submitting your story with the subject line Vacation Horror Stories.
