It’s not funny that people die from taking selfies but my first reaction is why do people put themselves at risk for a photo?
I rarely take selfies because they are stupid. I did it this time in above Tiger’s Nest because literally there wasn’t anyone else around to take a group photo. While adjusting the shot to get as much of the temple as possible, I noticed a gap in the fencing. I wasn’t near the gap and had I fallen, I would’ve landed in a patch of grass directly below. Still, it’s troubling to think about what could have been. More importantly, it is another travel lesson to add to my Travel Nightmares page.
