Traveling Around the World

Traveling. What comes to your mind when you hear that word?
Tour. Ticket, guides, new place, bus, air plane... What could possibly happen while traveling?
Will it be disastrous or rewarding?
Well, whatever it is; a disaster or a reward, it can make us smile and laugh afterwards.
You still don't buy it?

Touring South Africa
A tourist is traveling through on of the thickest jungles in South Africa, when he comes across an ancient Mayan temple and is amazed by it. He ask the guide, "How old is this temple?"
This temple is exactly 1703 years old," replied the giude.
"How can you be sure?" inquired the tourist.
"Easy", replied the guide, "an archeologist came here and told me this temple was 1700 years old, and that was three years ago."

Best in the Land
A group of hikers are led through the US wilderness by a guide.
On the third day, the hiker notice that they have been traveling in circles.
"We are lost!" one of the men complains.
"I thought you said you were the best guide in the United State."
"I am", the guide answer, "but i think we may have wandered into Canada."

Interesting Offer
While sitting in the upper deck, business class, front seat of  a Cathay Pacific 747 in Taipe, the following announcement is heard over the cabin PA system:
"Ladies and gentlemen, we are overbooked and are offering anyone $1,000 plus a seat, on the next flight, in exchange for their seat on this flight."
After a short pause, the offer was loudly accepted by someone in the cockpit.

The Break-down Train
A large two-engine train is crossing America. After traveling some distance one of the engine breaks down.
"No problem," the engineer thinks, and carries on at half power.
Farther on down the line, the other engine breaks down, and the train can't move.
The engineer decides he should inform the passengers about the reason for the stoppage, so he makes the following announcement:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that both engine have failed, and we will be stuck here for some time. The good news is that you decided to take the train and not a plane."

Mountain Tour Guide
Swiss mountain guides who always do the same trails can get tired answering the same questions over and over.
One day an English tourist is giving his guide an especially hard time with silly questions. They are walking through a mountain valley that is strewn asks, "How did these rocks get here?"
"Sir", says the guide, "they were brought down by a glacier."
The tourist peers up the mountain and says, "But I don't see any glacier."
"Oh really?" says the guide.
"I guess it has gone back for more rocks."

Airline Food
A man was on a flight to Hong Kong from Europe.
Since the flight was going to be a very long flight, he decided to get some shuteye and sleep.
Soon he was awakened by a flight attendant who asked him if he'd like to have some dinner.
He said, "What are my choises?"
The flight attendant says, "Yes or no."
