Sydney / Sidney: Next Time, Look at a Map

For the Inept Traveler Award that really takes the cake, read about Tobi Gutt from Germany.

Tobi intended to travel from Germany to Sydney, Australia, to visit his girlfriend. He didn’t question, however, the route the airline assigned him: through Portland, Oregon, and then Billings, Montana. It was in Billings that he finally noticed the final destination listed on his itinerary: Sidney, Montana.

"I did wonder but I didn’t want to say anything," Gutt told the Bild newspaper. "I thought to myself, you can fly to Australia via the United States."

Yes, he eventually managed to make it to Sydney, giving all of us a laugh along the way. Happy New Year, Tobi! from all of us at SkyGeek.
