“I travelled Australia alone. It was terrible”: Tourist recounts awful holiday in funny photos

Hannah Edensor

Australia is a beautiful, iconic tourism destination, but it seems not everyone shares the same views, with one Norwegian traveller sharing his disappointing experience online.

The tourist, known as Boedith, posted a series of photos of his solo holiday to Australia on Imgur, claiming, “I travelled Australia alone. It was terrible.”

He posted all the usual tourist spots, from Bondi Beach to Australia Zoo, but instead of a cheerful smile, Boedith’s face was deadpan.

“Bondi Beach in Sydney, not at all like on TV,” he captioned beneath his surly Bondi shot.

“Melbourne was just buildings,” he claimed with another.

Check out all of Boedith’s photos and hilariously depressing comments below. Does anyone actually agree with him?
