Who is Karl Pilkington’s travel agent?

Really – I would love to know.  Poor Karl.  He travels all over the world but always seems to get the short end of the straw. Maybe that’s why he always seems singularly unimpressed with the wonders of travel.  Got a good seat Karl?Imagine spending days on the Trans Siberian train in one of these bunk beds! Mind you I guess it is one way of getting to know your neighbours.

It’s not a surprise that the wonders of the world don’t impress him.

And he is not that fond of the wildlife

He’s really not sure if the local style is his “thing”
and I can just imagine his list of complaints to his travel agent when he returns –
On the Great Wall – “You can see it for miles. Like, it goes over the hills and stuff ….but so does the M6″

On Mexico – “The Chichen Itza is just a pyramid with four sides, with stairs on each side leading to some kind of bungalow on the top.”

On the Museum of Cairo –  “It’s like my Aunt Nora’s house – too many ornaments”

On India – “The toilet is too far from the sink which isn’t what you need in India. Both are often required at the same time”

On travel vaccinations – “She gave me the jabs and said I was covered for every worst-case scenario, including being bitten by a dirty chimp. I told her this is why we have over-population problems. Why are idiots who annoy dirty chimps being protected?”
