This is a question The Worst Journey in the World

Aspley Cherry Garrard was the youngest member of the Scott Polar Expedition when he and two others lost their tent to the winds of a night-time snowstorm. They spent hours in temperatures below -70°F stumbling about the ice floes hoping they'd bump into it as it was their only hope of survival.

OK, so that was bad, but we reckon you've had worse. We know how hard you lot are.

the french,why can't they be more like us...
a few years ago my mum and dad decided our annual holiday would be in the south of france near the basque area,we live in Rochdale and sicne my mum has a fear of flying we drove alllll the way ther.:( In a box standard Astra estate, not designed for anything but ..well nothing.Anywho we set off on a 6hour drive to Dover ferry port, but as was the usael as we were nearing Dover the M1 was suddenly a massive traffic jam monster htingy with all huge tentacles and purple skin etc... We' finally got to the port at 2.30 a.m, turns out there was a burnig lorry on the motorway when i switched the radio on, stupid flammable trucks. Since it was so late there were no ferries till early morning so we booked in at a travel inn for the night, leaving all our worldy posseshions int he car outside, mistake right there in a busy 24hour carpark.Car was broke into, not once but twice during the night, stupid Dover chavs.But they were so stupid that they ddidn't take anything, not even the laptop hidden under ym coat, but only tried to get my siggs.So we left bright and early in the morning, And we bagan driving through France. Have you ever used the public toilets in those road lay bys in France? Nobody else has either since its not a toilet but a hole in the floor wiv handles on the walls, not good for taking a crap and with no bog roll..DIRTY FRENCH, this was the same for a thurther 12hours all the way down to our haven sight, which when we got there ou caravan was overboked :'( So we had 2 pitch our own tent tht haven supplied us with, only to be eaten alive by birds in the night through the massive gaping hole in the tent, horrible. Why god, why?, Sorry for length but the French won't be!!
