Here is one more story from one of our intrepid global contributors and travel writer, Jacqui Horwood:
“My scariest moment came many years ago, in 1989, when I was travelling on a Contiki trip (which was scary enough as it was) through Europe. We were in Amsterdam and were staying at a flea pit in the red light district. After a night on the tiles, one of my fellow passengers, Pete, and I decided to walk home. We lost our bearings and found ourselves down a dark alley. Once we realised our mistake, we turned around and headed back to the bright lights. Unfortunately our mistake had been noticed by a gang of men who bailed up Pete halfway down the alley and robbed him at knife point. All I could do was watch and it was terrifying.”
