Imagine this scenario: you’ve always enjoyed traveling. For years, you’ve always wanted to visit one of the world’s most famous landmarks–let’s say Mt. Rushmore, or the Notre Dame Cathedral, or the birthplace of Luke and Owen Wilson. You plan this trip for months in advance, you spend a chunk of change on an airline ticket and lodging, you arrange to miss work, you travel for hours and hours to reach your destination, and…

You don’t get to see it. Maybe it’s foggy out. Or it’s under construction. Or it’s closed for a private event. Or maybe you get food poisoning. Whatever the reason, your plans will have to wait a bit longer.

It’s definitely a bummer, but it happens–and based on the number of travel photo fails people post online, it happens frequently. Here are 15 people who made the trek to see one of the wonders of the world, only for the world not to cooperate. (via Bored Panda.)
