Lyn’s epic fails

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - 25 YEARS OF WANDERLUST -

Editor-in-chief Lyn Hughes lists her great­est mishaps dur­ing 25 years at the helm

Kyr­gyzs­tan cloth­ing calamity

I had no time to pack for my trip to Kyr­gyzs­tan but saw on­line that Bishkek was swel­ter­ingly hot, so bought a bunch of T-shirts at the air­port. Head­ing above the snow­line, I re­alised this to be a mis­take, and also that I’d lost my only long-sleeved shirt. The so­lu­tion? Ur­gently grab the guide’s fleece and do lots of star-jumps.

Sausage suf­fer­ing

Wan­der­ing around with a wild boar sausage in my pocket in Mace­do­nia (don’t ask!), I at­tracted a large dog that bit my hand. Cue a saga of in­fected wounds and ra­bies treat­ments.

Sa­fari set­back

On a visit to Zam­bia’s Luangwa Val­ley, I jumped out of the 4WD to pho­to­graph an ele­phant. The only prob­lem was that the ve­hi­cle hadn’t stopped. Re­sult: torn ro­ta­tor.
