Writer's Block: Bad trip.

What was your worst travel experience ever, and why?

I got food poisoning on a trip to China. I discovered it while riding the overnight train to Beijing, which had rather quirky outdoor "plumbing" ... Holding onto a metal bar in an unlit, unlocked 'room' while chugging along at over 90mph with food poisoning is not a good time (although it was certainly memorable and makes for delightful dinner conversation).
