Are You Sure We're In France?
Fifty British shoppers taking a coach trip to Lille in France ended up 100 miles away in Belgium in a tiny village of the same name, thanks to a blunder on the driver's satellite-navigation device. Furious trippers spent an extra four hours on the bus as the red-faced driver drove from the middle of Belgium to the French spot first intended. The day trippers paid nearly $400 each for the Christmas trip, but got fewer than two hours' shopping time.
FOOTNOTE: Big blunder, but at least they're not Down Under.
