Complete disaster while on holiday


Guest abs

Recommended Posts

Well me and family went skiing in les arcs France (the alps) the morning we were due to fly home we woke to the biggest ever dump of snow I've ever seen in my life .

Our hire car was completly buried in a 10 ft snowdrift , so I dug it out and fitted our snow chains

Our flight home was at 4 hire car due back at 2 so we left in plenty of time at 10 for our 2 hour journey ,11 hours later we had only travelled 17 miles:( we missed our flight so we had to keep the hire car and found a hotel for the night , we then had to travel the 600 miles to calais where we managed to get a ferry to dover where we had to get a hotel for the night then hire another car to travel to Birmingham airport to get our car,

Cost a extra £700 for the 4 of us to get home , hate snow now :(

The only time I've ever been to Dover was to go to Calais on the booze cruises. The first time I went was with a mate and we borrowed a van. Guess who drove off the ferry and up the road on the wrong side :whistle: RODNEY YOU PLONKER :laugh:

Lol easy done, I got so used to driving in France I nearly drove on the wrong side when I got back to England, all the ferry ports in UK are shitholes

Needed a tank m8 to get down the mountains in the alps, we were lucky they was 27000 cars stranded overnight in -20 and some died driving off roads and thrown from roads in avalanches

makes u wonder how folk who had no money would have got home? one way might have been to sit up in your room and whittle a colt 45 out of a bedpost and then use it to hold up a taxi driver down in the valley
