She's actually jailed in Bali (Indonesia), not Thailand, don't want to start any Thailand rumors.

Quoting Travel100

I posted this in a thread about being lost, but since it was Very scary, I thought I'd post it here as well:

One time that I was "seriously" lost that stands out occured in Papua New Guinea. The reason it stands out is because I was not driving nor wolking but was IN A PLANE. Since we were 15,000 feet up and lost, I'd say it was serious.

Before we left I asked the co-pilot how long the flight was and he said 30 minutes. It was a very cloudy, overcast day. And that appeared to be the problem, when we were flying above the clouds, the pilot could not see where we were, and when we were lower we were in the clouds (and in New Guinea there are mountains over 15,000 feet) and ran the serious rick of crashing into the side of a mountain.

Anyway, after 45-50 minutes I became VERY concerned (remember 30 minute flight). I also noticed the co-pilot appeared to be very nervous and was constantly wiping the sweat from his forehead. I also noticed that we were flying not just in circles but more like figure eights. Then the real clue that things were NOT going well came when the pilot took out a MAP! That's the last thing you want to see your pilot looking at WHILE you're in the air.

Behind me on the plane was 1 Western woman, 2 guys in feathers (I'm not kidding), and a bunch of baby chickens making baby chicken noises. I truely thought this was going to be the end, and is the only time in my life that I thought it was all gonna come to a not-so-happy-ending. We kept going in figure eights, avove the clouds, below the clouds, and then finally, , after more than 60 minutes the pilot spotted some mountain peak, they looked at the map, appeared relieved, and we were back on track. Yeaaaaaay!

I'd consider that seriously lost, don't ya think?

That is seriously lost and seriously scary. Thanks for sharing it. I hope something like that never happens to me.
