15 Travel Photos That I Can't Stop Laughing At

Going on vacation is something that everyone looks forward to. Getting away from home and going on a trip is a great experience for everyone. And, while we're gone, we always want to document moments from our trip on camera.

Taking photos while on vacation is a great way to keep memories alive. However, we all know some photos do not come out as we wanted them to, or as we planned.

That fog though.

Going to certain places, like mountains, needs to be done when it's a bright, sunny, clear day. Going when it's cloudy and foggy will most certainly not pay off. I mean, those photos will look like you're standing in front of a white screen.

Oops, photobomb.

You would think that when you ask someone to take a photo for you that they would realize that you cannot see anything because their finger is totally in the way. Sometimes, we should check the photo before we walk away.

That's disappointing.

Imagine driving or traveling all the way to see something super special and it is such a letdown—apparently, it happens more often than you think. And, you feel like a total fool for going that far to see something so small.

Something is not right here.

What volcano?
