Want to know my worst travel story?
Actually, it’s the most disgusting travel story. It happened in front of this beautiful hotel in Belgrade.
I was taking photos when a middle-aged man approached me and asked if I need someone to take a photo me. As I don’t post photos of myself I thanked him and said that I don’t need any help. He left.
After one minute he came back and asked me where I’m from. I replied and asked the same question. He said USA.
He continued asking me if I’m traveling with my girlfriend to what I replied that I’m a single solo-traveler.
His next question was if I’m interested in men or women. This was kinda funny, but also embarrassing because:
1st - he knew me for literally 2 minutes and decided to ask for a very personal information
2nd - It was in the middle of the day
3rd - It was on the streets.
As I replied that I’m interested in women, he left and came back after one minute telling me “You know, you have a beautiful body” (I quoted him).
I was slightly confused, not knowing what to say. He continued asking me if I’d like to see the interior of the hotel.
I mean if I wanted to see the interior I could just walk in and ask, right? So I just stood there without saying anything.
Next question was “Do you know what's the best part of this hotel?”. I asked “No, which?”. He replied “The bedrooms.”.
I was like “Oh really?”.
He continued with his next question and I’m quoting him again:
“Would you sleep with me for $ 400?”. Honestly, I thought that it was a hidden camera, a prank or whatever. I started laughing and saying “No, no, no…” because, how often do you get this question when traveling, in the middle of the day, in one of Belgrade’s busiest streets?
He was damn serious and told me that this is good money.
I walked away. At first it was funny, but as I was thinking more about this it started to raise a big questions - what is going on with humanity?
I would also have the same reaction if a woman asked me the same thing. Like, you just can’t stop people on the street and ask them to sleep with you!
So that's my weirdest story. Now it’s your turn.
What is the weirdest thing that happened to you while traveling?
