Poor Diane. While travelling in NSW with her TOH, the waterfalls they came across were nearly dry, or if not dry, severely depleted of water.
I am sure everyone has had disappointing travel moments and we are no exceptions.
In a similar vein to Diane, we travelled by chairlift to Kuranda out from Cairns and returned via a scenic railway. There were spectacular views of Barron Falls, but alas, there was barely any water flow.
We took R's sister and brother in law up into the stunning Blue Mountains from Sydney, only to find a summer mist had brought visibility down to a few metres.
I so wanted to go up the Blackpool Tower. I was disappointed to find that you had to pay an outrageous price, which included a circus. I did not go to Blackpool to see a circus. I went to see the tower, trams, the beach and the nightlife.
Then our most recent disappointment, the funicular train up Penang Hill in Malaysia was closed for maintenance the day we visited.
I would be happy to hear of your disappointing travel moments.
