10 Hilarious Photos That Show Travel Expectations Vs. The Reality

These images will have you in stitches!

Have you ever looked twice at the food you ordered in a fast food restaurant and wondered why it wasn’t as big and appealing as the one pictured in ads and on their lighted display board-style menu? Nobody would want a sloppy-looking burger or soggy fries, right? So, of course, for marketing purposes, those foods had to be prepped and photoshopped to look delectable or mouth-watering on the menu. That's reality.

Unfortunately, travel brochures are like that sometimes. The photos of some famous landmarks had to be edited in a way that would make the site appear more inviting. Tourists may be a bit shocked, though. As soon as they arrive, they'll realize that the place isn’t exactly as picture-perfect as they have been expecting.

Well, especially when myriads of people decided to take a vacation the same time you did.

This Solar-Powered Tricycle Is All Sorts of Awesome

This year, the hotel is now 1, 311 years old. The inn has been operational ever since and only closed down during renovations. The business has been operated by all 52 generations of the descendants of Fujiwara Mahito.

On the inside, you can expect a traditional Japanese interior design, but guests can enjoy a modern type of accommodation. People from all walks of life have stayed in the hotel including samurai and politicians, and all are after one thing – the hot springs.
