50 Vacation Pictures Gone Wrong

Sneak Attack

Sneak Attack

No swimmer is safe when a kid's fully armed with a water gun. 

Unfortunately, no kid is safe when mom is angry!

Picnic Panic

Picnic Panic

Imagine traversing to what was once a beautiful meadow with leaping deer and buzzing bees perfect for a morning picnic only to find it burnt to a crisp.

Hopefully, their sandwiches were good, at least.

Let's Fly!

Let's Fly!

These guys have caught some major air on this tube ride!

We're sure everyone is just fine after this crash. Probably.

Tiger Stripes

Tiger Stripes

Someone had some... fun with the sunscreen.

Next time it might just be easier to wear a shirt instead of trusting that your friends and family know how to apply sunscreen!

The Birds and...The Kangaroos?

The Birds and...The Kangaroos?

That kangaroo seems to be a little...preoccupied, kiddo.

Hopefully, he doesn't ask his parents any awkward questions about what exactly is going on!

Au Natural

Au Natural

First the kangaroos, now the turtles. What's next?

These kids are getting the most awkward biology lesson of their lives!

Picture Perfect Pair

Picture Perfect Pair

Sometimes you can get it a little… lost in the moment.

Too bad it looks like the horse handler might be drowning.

An Owl Says Hello

An Owl Says Hello

This owl obviously just wanted to say hi to this woman and the sheep!

I'm sure it didn't intend to scare the heck out of her.

Beach Buds

Beach Buds

A little kid, a monkey, and a parrot are all chilling on a beach. It sounds like the opening line to a bad joke.

But there's no denying that this kid managed to get one heck of a souvenir photo from his vacation!

Hair's On End

Hair's On End

We've heard of your hair standing on end but never quite like this!

Who knows? This could become the next big hairstyle!

Sun's Out, Buns Out

Sun's Out, Buns Out

That would've been a good picture, too bad there's an almost full moon behind them.

And what exactly is going on with that Richard Nixon back tattoo?

Cheese!

Cheese!

These two seem very happy to pose with their new stingray buddy!

It's nice to see that human-stingray relations are improving since the Steve Irwin incident.

Clumsy Parents

Clumsy Parents

The mom looks scared, the dad looks like he's about to die laughing, and the child looks like a football.

These parents are never going to live this one down! 

(Image via Imgur)

Group Hug!

Group Hug!

Look at that face! This stingray obviously didn't mean any harm. He just wanted a hug!

It's clear that this guy is a real ladies' man! 

(Image via Twitter)

Snack Time

Snack Time

What's funnier to you? The dad or the baby's face?

Kids don't really need both hands, do they?

Goth Holiday

Goth Holiday

It's not a phase, mom!

I'm sure her family is just happy that they managed to get her out of the house at all! 

(Image via Reddit)

Jack, I'm--Ow!

Jack, I'm--Ow!

They tried to recreate a famous pose for what would've been a great picture. Too bad this bird was the only one flying.

Though, it wasn't flying well, apparently.

(Image via Reddit)

You Sound Horse

You Sound Horse

The horse just wanted to say 'hi!' Too bad this kid didn't seem too excited about that sweet horse's greeting.

Judging by his teeth, this horse is just trying to find a ride to his dentist's appointment.

Perfect Form

Perfect Form

This swimmer clearly doesn't have Olympic diving in his future. 

However, there's one thing that is in his future--a very painful belly flop. 

(Image via Reddit)

Batman's #1 Fan

Batman's #1 Fan

For some people, body hair isn't just a fact of life or something to get rid of--it's a blank canvas. 

We have to credit this guy for his creativity, but that's definitely not something we would want to see on a relaxing trip to the beach. 

(Image via Reddit)

Crime Doesn't Neigh

Crime Doesn't Neigh

No one is exempt from following the law--and that goes for horses too!

This is one bronco who needs to turn his life around quick or he'll find himself sentenced to the glue factory!

(Image via Reddit)

Panorama Fail

Panorama Fail

If you're vacationing in a tropical, beautiful location, that's the perfect time to use the panorama function on your phone's camera. 

However, this traveler clearly needs a little more practice with the technology. Or maybe she's just got one messed-up skull!

(Image via Reddit)

Say Cheese

Say Cheese

This seagull has true star power and knows that he belongs in front of a camera. 

This might not be the picture the couple intended to take, but it's definitely made 100% better thanks to this photobomb. 

(Image via Reddit)

Just Another Day on the Beach

Just Another Day on the Beach

Step aside, Jaws, there's a new terror on the beach! 

We're not exactly sure what makes a giraffe so terrifying, but these people are clearly aware of the threat!

(Image via Reddit)

Walking on Water

Walking on Water

Either this beach is haunted or someone is missing a pair of sandals. 

Or maybe Jesus finally took a vacation and decided to go to the beach. Good for him. 

(Image via Reddit)

Family Man

Family Man

You can't just leave your valuables lying around on the beach--you never know who might swipe them!

Unfortunately for this husband and father, the rest of the family decided that he should be the one to play security guard. 

(Image via Reddit)

Smoke Break

Smoke Break

Life on the open seas is clearly not as rough and terrible as pirate movies make it seem. 

This guy is going to smoke his hookah come hell or high water! 

(Image via Reddit)

Land Ho

Land Ho

The ocean is a huge place and it's understandable that navigators sometimes get completely turned around. 

That being said, whoever managed to get this boat into this mess probably should hand the map over to someone else. 

(Image via Reddit)

Seeing Double

Seeing Double

When some people go on vacation, they worry if they'll fit in with the locals. No one wants to stick out like a sore thumb. 

These people clearly had nothing to worry about because they've got the local uniform down to a T! 

(Image via Reddit)

Old Glory

Old Glory

The American flag is not a fashion statement, but these people clearly didn't get the memo. 

However, big props to this lone patriot who's not afraid to pledge allegiance. 

(Image via Reddit)

Relaxing at the Beach

Relaxing at the Beach

These ladies know how to relax and they're not afraid to cause a scene if it means getting a little R&R! 

And they definitely deserve it! Can you imagine how much effort it probably took to lug that sofa down to the beach? 

(Image via Reddit)

DIY Floaties

DIY Floaties

When it comes to swimming in the ocean, you always need to remember safety first! It can be a dangerous place. 

However, if you're unaware like these people clearly are, life jackets are cheap and not in short supply. They clearly took upcycling way too far. 

(Image via Reddit)

An Unusual Beach Companion

An Unusual Beach Companion

You'll see plenty of families having fun at the beach, but not many are thoughtful enough to bring the ENTIRE family--appliances and all. 

Hopefully, this guy brought an extra air filter, because it's going to take a lot of work to get this beach clean! 

(Image via Reddit)

Front Row Seats to the Show

Front Row Seats to the Show

If you thought spending time in your tiny hotel room with your family was bad, just be glad you didn't check in here! 

Why anyone would think to put a giant window in the bathroom is beyond us, but clearly someone thought it was a good idea. 

(Image via Reddit)

Photobomb Justice

Photobomb Justice

You're either having an amazing day at the beach or a terrible day at the beach, depending on who you are in this photo. 

This is one vacation photo that's probably not getting framed and displayed! 

(Image via Reddit)

You're Going to Have to Check Those

You're Going to Have to Check Those

Some people don't know how to pack efficiently, but this is just getting ridiculous. Why go on vacation at all if you're going to bring the entire house with you? 

All joking aside, this is, interestingly, an actual statue at Sacramento International Airport, but it had us fooled!

(Image via Reddit)

Poolside Physics

Poolside Physics

There should be no homework on a vacation, but we'll allow this one exception since it's so funny. 

Either this guy is the headless horseman on vacation or he knows exactly how water refracts light. 

(Image via Reddit)

Canoe Fail

Canoe Fail

If you're canoeing for the first time, you may as well just expect to topple out at least a few times. 

This guy may have gotten soaked, but he also managed to get up close and personal with some of the local flora. 

(Image via Reddit)

The Birthplace of Civilization

The Birthplace of Civilization

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is ground zero for ridiculous, corny photos. Who hasn't visited this site without pretending like they're holding up the tower? 

However, we were never expecting something as ridiculous as this. This is one tourist with way too much time on her hands. 

(Image via Reddit)

Pool Party Pooper

Pool Party Pooper

Light just doesn't play by the same rules when it comes to the water, and that includes when someone is snapping a photo of you. 

That might explain her body, but that still doesn't explain why she's having such a bad time in the pool!

(Image via Reddit)

Treasure Hunting

Treasure Hunting

You can find all sorts of interesting things on the beach if you know where to look. But this father-daughter duo found more than they bargained for!

Someone is missing those dentures, but, at this point, it's probably for the best that they just get a fresh new set. 

(Image via Reddit)

Staying Afloat

Staying Afloat

Kids love the water, but it can be so hard to keep them safe when they're swimming. These parents came up with an ingenious solution. 

You don't choose the floaty life--the floaty life chooses you.

A Bearable Vacation

A Bearable Vacation

There's no better way to get in touch with nature than a camping trip. This might be a little too much in touch with nature, though. 

Maybe this bear just wanted to give them a friendly greeting to the neighborhood, but we wouldn't stick around to find out!

(Image via Reddit)

A Sandy Predicament

A Sandy Predicament

They might not have gotten the boat into the water, but at least they got the truck into the sand!

Something tells me they're going to be vacuuming sand out of that vehicle for years to come!

(Image via Reddit)

Floating on the Beach

Floating on the Beach

Is this woman sitting on the beach next to a black hat or has she mastered the art of levitation? 

The beach may be a magical place, but we're pretty sure that it's not that magical! 

(Image via Reddit)

Say Cheese

Say Cheese

These days, people don't go on vacation to relax--they go to snap the perfect selfie. 

It's a risky gamble to take your phone out into open waters, but those perfect beach photos aren't going to snap themselves!

(Image via Reddit)

Sand Sofa

Sand Sofa

Sandcastles are so passe nowadays. This guy was thinking way outside the box when he created this. 

It's constructed nicely, but, more importantly, it looks very comfy! There's not a better place at the beach to take a load off. 

(Image via Reddit)

No Smiles

No Smiles

Going to a theme park is every kid's dream, right? Clearly, there's at least one youngster who begs to differ. 

This guy looks like he's trying his hardest not to have a good time. You've got to admire his dedication to his craft. 

(Image via Reddit)

All Thumbs

All Thumbs

This picture could have been the greatest vacation photo of all time, but no we'll never know someone doesn't know how to keep their thumb out of the way. 

Let's hope they weren't trying to capture a touching moment. I give this photo two thumbs way down. 

(Image via Reddit)

Terrifyingly Fun

Terrifyingly Fun

This kid was probably ecstatic that he was finally big enough to make it onto a roller coaster. Oh, how wrong he was!

This is how a lifelong fear of heights is born, and let's just hope this kid made it out of this situation without too many mental scars.
