Hey everybody, I’m sorry I’ve been absent from Travel Oops and neglectful of the WordPress community. In May, I traveled to Vietnam to get more material and mishaps (definitely that was a given — just trying to cross the street in Saigon was comedy.) At any rate, to jump back in, I’m sharing some gems from the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. By the way, although I was only in the airport on a layover, I’m sure Taiwan is a lovely place to visit.
Taipei, Taiwan, May 2014. It’s not like I travel with cocaine in my colon, but there is something VERY disconcerting about the above drug trafficking sign nevertheless.
Then there are the escape contraptions. These signs were not comforting, especially since the day before my friend Debbie and I arrived in Taiwan, a massive stabbing spree had taken place in the Taipei metro. I’m curious as to whether these escape routes have been tested.
The Escape Sling is definitely intriguing. I wonder what the punishment is for inadvertently using it. Actually, I don’t want to know…..
Sure missed you, glad to see more of your travel humor 🙂
Thanks so much, Ana! Glad to be back on and catching up with blogs like yours. 🙂
great to have you back in circulation
Thanks, Dad — lots of stories to come I hope! xoxox
Hmm… If i wanted to escape I don’t think I would have the presence of mind to be able to follow those instructions! The chute sounds better. Ummm… on second thoughts…
I know — there are about nine steps to the escape sling and the chute looks like one massive filing cabinet that tipped over. And then you think…”hmmm, there must be a reason the airport has these escape routes….”
