Language barrier scuppers idiot

BBC NEWS | England | Bristol | Language barrier scuppers walker
A man who planned to walk from Bristol to India without any money has quit, after getting as far as Calais, France.

Mark Boyle, 28, who set out four weeks ago with only T-shirts, a bandage and sandals, hoped to rely on the kindness of strangers for food and lodging.

But, because he could not speak French, people thought he was free-loading or an asylum seeker.

Fantastic British attitude: “everyone between here and India will speak English, no worries”.
