This is a question Travel

I've had guns pointed at me in many different countries, sometimes even by our own side. I've also sat on my own on a beach on a desert island, which was nice because nobody was trying to shoot me. Tell us your tales of foreign travel.

Thanks to SnowytheRabbit for the suggestion

Deadly weapons
On first holiday with girlfriend (now wife). We'd gone to Israel simply because it was hot in February. Once there we took a sightseeing trip to the Dead Sea, Jerusalem and Bethlehem - we're not religious, we just thought 'why not?'
It was all very interesting and I managed to get some souvenir spoons for my mum who, for some reason was a collector.
Bizarrely, instead of getting back on the bus for the return journey, we were to take an internal flight. Security was high and we found ourselves separated and interrogated by large military ladies with machine guns.
"How long have you known your traveling companion? How far away does she live? How often do you see her?" It was all getting a little scary and I started to panic.
My interrogator barked her final question at me, all the time rubbing her hand over her massive gun. "Do you have anything in your possession that could be used as a weapon?"
Well I didn't want to lie - she might shoot me, so I confessed.
The impossible happened and this bear of a woman cracked a smile and sent the British idiot on his way.
