Tell us about your travel emergencies

Have you ever fallen ill or gotten badly injured overseas?

Did you ever find yourself stranded at the airport after your flight was canceled?

Has a pickpocket ever targeted you while you're traveling?

Did you ever return to your hotel room to discover your valuables missing?

Has your passport ever disappeared in the middle of a trip abroad?

What about terrorist incidents or natural disasters…have you or anyone you know been in the middle of such a catastrophe?

If any of these sorts of unfortunate events have happened to you, please tell us about them. Tell us exactly what happened, how you reacted, and how you wished you would have reacted, in retrospect. We're putting together a story that's all about travel emergencies, and while we have plenty of reader questions we plan to answer, we'd love to incorporate as many real-life examples as possible, too. Thanks!
