Quotes from the Characters


Relaxing at Iguassu Falls in between hearing some great quotes.


During our Round the World trip we heard some great quotes from characters. Here are some of my favourites…
“This trip should last around 45-50 minutes but I’m gonna try and do it in half that, within the margins of safety of course.” – LA bus driver

“You just wait til we get to Phoenix. I’m gonna fuck you up.” – massive African American man to much smaller man while boarding plane.

“I had a massive crush on Simba when I was younger.” – Kat on her love for the lion king

Hysterical nonstop laughter – Norwegian cuckoo girls

“I would move if there wasn’t some fat Australian in my way.” – some classic Brian sledging after a few beers

“I’m going to fucking kill you” – Rio drug dealer in Lapa

“I think we’re in a lot of trouble here, we should probably go home…
Screw it, let’s do some shots. “- Adam after drug dealer confrontation

“I’m not going to be able to afford milk for my kids if you pay that cheap a price.” Rio vendor (he took it)
