7 Struggles Every Traveler Understands | Humour

Hey, little weirdos! Today, I’m back with another installment in The Struggles series! (Thank god, I finally decided on a name!)

I thought because this summer I’m doing a lot of traveling that I do a post about traveling struggles!

I’m doing a lot of traveling this summer, and I thought this post was a great one to share because, I don’t know, people travel during the summer? (I just thought it would be a cool idea.

Ugh, let’s just get on to the post, I swear it’s not as boring as I make it sound.


OK! Everyone knew this was gonna be number one, it’s just a given.

Sometimes, you’re okay with it, like it’s only 1 or 2 hours, but then there are the flights across the world that just fuck you up majorly.

I recently went to Los Angeles with my dad and that was a 16-hour flight (didn’t get any sleep on there) and then there was the 12-hour jetlag (so basically I didn’t get any sleep on that trip), but I’ll have more on that when I post my trip overview post (I’M SORRY IT’S LATE!!!)

2. overpacking/underpacking

If I had a dollar every time I forgot toothpaste or something dumb like that, I’d be able to fill up a pool with it, I swear!

I’ll either pack a shirt and a pair of jeans and end up needing more clothes throughout, or pack way too much and end up not having enough space for the shit that I bought from there. It’s just a lose-lose situation

3. Different outlets


If you’ve traveled internationally, then you know that this is the worst thing that could happen to you (hyperbole of course, because there are a shit ton of things can go wrong, but…).

And especially if you forgot to pack an international adapter (see #2), then you’re gonna have to waste your money on a cheap adapter that’s gonna break in a day anyways. UGH!

4. food

  1. Food on the plane is usually shit (not on my flight, and I’ll talk about that in my LA post too).
  2. You have to buy food so you can sadly snack at night. (going outside an interacting with people… *shurders*)
  3. Eating outside and risking food poisoning.


5. public transport

If you don’t have the luxury of renting a car, you’re gonna have to take the bus/subway/taxi (god forbid), or you can walk.

I prefer to walk so I can take a couple photos, but having a camera around your neck is like screaming I HAVE MONEY MUGG ME!

6.Room Service

Do you know what it’s like to answer the door with half your eyeliner on while in pajamas? If you don’t, then you’re blessed.

They just come in the worst times, even if you have the Do Not Disturb sign on the door, it’s like a curse -_- (I’m using that emoticon a lot, I hope you guys don’t mind)

7. Security

UGH! I think I’m gonna do a whole story time on this one day, but for now, I’m just gonna say that LA security is the worst. The complete worst.

And it’s different for every country, so you can’t just say that you’re ready and everything unless you do research about what they require (I usually don’t, which is pretty bad…)

Don’t take me as a role model, I’m the worst at this stuff.


Much love, Rawan❤ …
