Don’t you just find it funny when you see a vacation photo you haven’t seen in a long time? We all have those moments when we try to take a photo and yet something goes horribly wrong. It’s not that you weren’t taking the proper precautions to get the perfect photo, but you just ended up in the right place and at the right time.
Okay, so we’ve rounded up some of the most hilarious vacation photos on the internet that we could find, just so we can give you a nice laugh. Are you excited to see the photos yet? Read on and you’ll find out:
We all know what it feels like to get excited in a wave pool only to get hilariously slapped in the face by a wave. At some point, we would even try our best to stand tall, and try not to get tackled by a wave, and sadly this family failed that game shamelessly.
While trying to take a sweet innocent photo, this family gets taken out by a huge wave. Kinda like surfing and you don’t know how to stand on the board yet, they got Wiped out too quickly before they could even get the chance to take a nice photo. Too Funny! We feel you guys!
This lady looks way too terrified to meet this tiny bay alligator. Well, we can’t blame her. The funny thing about this photo though is you can clearly see that the alligator is banded around the mouth and even tied up so it’s completely harmless.
So, we can’t really explain why this lady is flipping out, because she is completely safe. Aside from that, the alligator looks more terrified of her than she is of him. We are all starting to wonder how she would react to this photo when she sees it after a few years. Definitely a photo worth remembering.
Monkeys on Vacation
Oh, nothing just three monkeys on a scooter enjoying the scenery. Monkeys vacation too you know, as you can see in this photo and it looks like they’re having a fun time too.
You might probably be wondering how they ended up on that scooter, well. Monkeys are probably the best stealers and the best masterminds of a quick heist. And we like to think that they had all the right intentions when they took a stroll. But, how are they driving it anyway? We assume that they stole it to go on their own vacation. What else can they steal? Your wife perhaps?
Lord of the Chicken
This guy seems like a real chick magnet, Literally. Most of the time, the reason why we want to go on a vacation, it’s so we can meet new people but this guy obviously had other ideas on his mind.
We don’t really understand what’s going on in this photo and why this guy has so many chickens on him, but he seems to like the attention. So, good job? At least you know he has a lot of chicks, and they seem to like him right back. Maybe, because he’s got the appeal that is irresistible to chickens? Yeah, that might be it!
Side of the Highway
Aww, these two look like they’re having fun, but it’s a little daring to be standing on the side of the highway like that. It’s hilarious, but these grandparents had all the best intentions.
Of course, they wanted to remember their trip to Indianapolis, so they take a picture on the side of the highway. It’s a witty idea, but we can’t think of any better opportunities to pull this off. As brave as they are, they probably weren’t thinking about their safety anymore just to get a cute picture. We are all sure that they will end up laughing at this at some point, just so they know how crazy they were to take a photo like this.
Have you ever experienced that moment when you take a photo then a random stranger either intentionally makes an appearance in your photos or end up there by mistake? We think it’s normal for people to photobomb though.
This lovely couple is trying to take a nice vacation photo by the pool, but they just happened to be at the right place and at the right time when this bozo ruined everything by timing a perfect photobomb. But, you gotta admit that it’s a pretty sweet photobomb. Then again, we wonder how this couple will feel when they look back on the photo a few years after and see this guy hovering right behind their heads, that would be funny!
What is going on in this photo? Okay, we want to believe that this guy is taking a photo of something in the pile of rubbish, but he’s actually taking a perfect snapshot of the garbage. He probably found something interesting in the garbage, but we can’t figure out what exactly he was trying to pull off.
Maybe he does this on each vacation that he goes on to make sure he captures the scenery, but then again let’s just give him the benefit of the doubt even if this looks too funny! We are sure, he was trying to prove something or he was just being goofy.
Woah! Okay, these ladies do not look too happy. They certainly did not expect this scary stingray to pop up from behind their backs like this, and it totally caught them by surprise. Stingrays are huge, and if they do end up sneaking up on you like what this one did with these ladies, you might have also been caught by surprise.
They only wanted to take a nice photo, but then this guy dropped in curiously and took a photo with them. It’s okay guys, he might be big but he’s harmless. He’s just popping in to say hi, and greet you guys! This photo looks hilarious though, we can imagine your heart attacks.
Love and Death
Someone help this poor man out, we think he is drowning. These two wanted to share a romantic kiss, maybe enjoy their vacation, but their horse wrangler is having a hard time staying above water. He seemed to be the one suffering through this image more than the horses, as you can see his head is almost just right above the water.
It’s funny, maybe when they look back on this photo a few years from now and see how they looked, they would probably cringe at the fact that they look like this in the photo. Who can blame them, it's pretty embarrassing yet oddly too funny to look at.
Watch Your Head
When you get too curious, you can get into an accident that way. This guy was obviously too curious and wanted to explore parts of this statue too thoroughly. Yes, we know it’s a big bull, and it looks very interesting but we don’t see the reason why this guy just had to get curious on the opposite end of this statue. Maybe he was trying to sneak a peek for himself to see if the sculptor actually made the parts of this thing real.
What’s funnier, he got his head stuck in the bull statue’s butt. Guy’s someone helps this poor man out, he was just curious, someone calls the police, the paramedics, anyone!
Brown on Brown on Dirt
Oh, what’s going on here? This couple might really love the color brown too much. They have obviously planned for this photo in advance to come up with these hard colors, that they even included a pile of dirt behind them. It’s very unique indeed, but we also don’t see where they could have gone for the vacation that involved a place like this and with this kind of dirt. It’s too funny and they crack us up!
Their goal was probably to blend in with the dirt, and they nailed it! Brown on brown dirt baby! Take pictures of everything they said!
Aww, don’t be scared, this donkey just wants to be friends. Although we all want to believe that this donkey will play nice with this kid, he’s not like the loveable donkey in that Shrek movie. He was probably just a little too curious about what the kid was doing inside the car if he was eating something or not, but from the looks of it, he was just popping in to say hi.
Instead, he ended up scaring this poor kid and it even looks like this donkey is a super gangster with a set of gold-plated teeth. No wonder this kid got scared, this donkey is loco!
Baby Meet Dolphin
This baby does not seem happy at all. Don’t get a scared sweetheart, this dolphin just wants to greet you for visiting the zoo. It’s funny though because she’s super scared and yet she is outside of the dolphin tank, what kind of parents wanted this for their child? Who thought this was a good idea?
It’s okay, it makes for a great first memory though. When she grows up and looks back on this photo, she’s either going to laugh or cry, which still makes it a great memory to remember, just maybe not for the little girl seeing as she was too terrified to even look at the dolphin.
This tourist was in for a big surprise when this adorable but surprising buffalo entered his car. Maybe he was curious about what this guy was up to, so he popped in for a while and decided to say hi.
Or, he could have wanted to go for a test drive with the tourist somewhere and have a beer! Regardless of the reason, however, this photo looks way too good. When this guy in the photo looks back on this day a few years later, he would probably laugh at how scared he is for reacting this kind of way to a buffalo who is practically harmless. Too funny!
Just a Bit to the Left
Okay, we have all tried to take the perfect photo with the leaning tower of Pisa, but a lot of us either get it right, or we hilariously fail shamelessly. In fact, you can be as creative as you want with your photos because it does make a really great photo if you manage to nail the angles just right.
These two had the same idea in mind, however, they did not really get the photo just right. They look ridiculous trying to get the angle just right but they might have got it if they probably took the photo from somewhere else.
Sitting on a Limb
This is too funny. We wonder how long it took for this family to all get up on this tree limb and sit together closely just to take a family photo like this? Don’t you guys find it funny? They could have gone a different way with this, but this is what they thought of.
They are certainly an awkward family, but we are not too sure what mindset they had while taking this photo. Well, when you are on a vacation you just want to get the most out of it as you can, but this family definitely took it to a whole new level of crazy!
Ever heard of a tummy tuck? This guy obviously had no worries about his tummy being exposed like that. Some people don’t even care that they are already kneeling down with their shirts open, butt cracks slipping, and all other funny poses just to make sure they take a nice photo.
He was probably aiming for a good photo, but then he realized that it wasn’t good enough so he had to take it in a different way, and didn’t notice that his stomach was showing. Guys, mad props for him though, he still managed to take a good photo of himself with a tummy like that.
Okay, what’s wrong with this photo? Can you guys tell us what’s wrong with it? It seems to be completely fine, but if you look very closely, this family is showing off their pride for their country by wearing these ridiculous outfits with those hats. It seems like they were enjoying their vacation in a baseball field, which explains their outfits.
Who wears hats like those anyway? It’s hilarious but why would they do that? They could have worn something else? But then again, it’s probably okay if they’ll be the only ones who will eventually see these photos in a few years.
Okay, we all know how it feels to wear something we don’t like, and especially when it’s your parents who are forcing you to wear it. Mothers are known for making their kids wear silly outfits, but that’s just them trying to make their kids look good. These kids obviously don’t like the idea of wearing these massive hats. It’s hilarious, and they look super miserable.
Plus, what makes it even funnier, is the fact that it's an awkward family photo. Look at the face of that girl? She definitely does not look proud that she’s wearing the hat, and it seems like she even took it off a little.
Daddy Dropped Her
Oh, goodness! When your family tries a jumping photo, sometimes it ends up looking great and sometimes it fails miserably. But maybe, when you try it all together, you should always remember to make sure that you are holding on to the baby.
Or you’ll have something that looks like this. It’s super funny though, but we all feel for the little girl that probably face slammed into the sand. This dad probably did not take the advice. It’s funny though how this kid managed to still put a smile on her face even after getting dropped by daddy. She’s definitely a fighter!
Well, this happens a lot when you just happen to ride a seemingly large animal that’s in heat. In Thailand, we all know that elephants are well taken cared of, but this photo is just inappropriate. Elephants are huge, and if they stand up like that, you can get really surprised like these guys.
Of course, a male can’t help itself around a female that is in heat, they are animals after all. We all want to think that this is super hilarious, but what about for the people who were actually in the photo? We are starting to wonder how they feel about this one, maybe a mixture of both annoyed and happy?
Goth Beach Trip
This girl obviously took things to a whole new level with her outfit. We all know that going to the beach means going in a bathing suit but because this girl is too much of a rebel, she decided to go with a black outfit.
It’s making us all wonder if she feels hot in her outfit, especially that its color black. The heat of the sun is maybe not enough to melt her. We wonder as well how her family feels about her outfit. She could have changed into something that is a little more festive but the color black. There are other ways that she could have pulled off this look, right?
Vacation Hospital Time
No vacation is complete without a trip to the emergency room. At some point in your vacation, sometimes it’s highly likely that you end up in the hospital because you fell on your butt, you got your fingers clipped, bump your head somewhere or you fell down a steep hill.
Let’s not jinx it though, but this family seems way too excited that they are in the emergency room. It’s funnier than this father took a photo of the historic hospital, and it’s absolutely not historical at all. He seems to be enjoying himself way too much! This is absolutely hilarious.
And here we have another stingray photo. We all know how stingrays are completely harmless when you don’t try to hurt it, plus when you go on any vacation it is normal to interact with animals that you take an interest in, well at least for most people who don’t feel alienated with this sort of situation.
This woman in the photo is terrified of this stingray, as it jumps out of the water and onto her back. We don’t blame her though, it looks absolutely scary but funny nonetheless. Certainly, when she looks back at this photo, she would still laugh at herself for getting this scared.
Attacked by Deer
How come this kid does not notice that his sister is somehow getting mauled by a bunch of deer just a few feet right behind him? He seems super happy with his photo though, but we are not sure about his sister. She seems to be getting it though, because she is just crowded. She might have had some food in her hand.
He apparently does not know what is happening, which makes it an epic picture to look back on when they both get older. We are sure that this little girl will probably loathe her brother when she gets older. Cray Cray!
Oops, watch where you sit next time! Take note that when you pose for photos, it is important to know that you have to sit on a solid surface so that you do not fall off. But this family obviously did not follow any rules.
This old lady fell off the edge as she was sitting for a photo, and it is the funniest thing we have seen on the internet. May seem mean to laugh at an old lady, but the photo speaks for itself. We wish she could have been more careful of where she sits so that she didn’t have to fall like that.
Oh, nothing just a normal family vacation portrait with a kid getting attacked by the family dog. We all told him not to mess around with the dog while taking the picture but he annoyed it anyway and instead got attacked.
We all know how playful dogs get when they are excited, this one probably was trying to show his appreciation for the little boy, but it turned bad. It’s hilarious, and we are sure that the family did not react right away. It doesn't seem serious, but then again if they were to look at this a few years into the future, they would still laugh at it.
Drop the Baby
Again people, when you are taking family photos. It is important to understand that you need to remember not to drop the baby. When taking the perfect family photo it's not cool to drop your kids for the sake of getting the best shot.
Although it is quite funny when you look at it, we are pretty sure this poor baby probably did not feel the same way. When she grows old and looks at this photo somewhere into the next few years, she’s going to laugh and probably get mad at the mother for dropping her on to the ground to take a good photo.
The Horde of Monkeys
Monkey see, and monkey do! Have you heard of that phrase? Well, it turns out it works on humans as well. When a monkey takes an interest in you, sometimes it can be scary because they will end up doing whatever it is you do.
This photo is the perfect example of this, as you can see if you have some food in your hand, it doesn’t matter where you are standing, they will either take it from you or wait for you to give it to them. This is a hilarious representation of it as well, the woman did not see it coming, and obviously got frightened. We can just imagine what her face is going to be like when she looks at this a few years into the future and tells her friends about it.
As a photographer, it’s important to get the right lighting, the right angle, the right scene to take a good photo, but no one ever said that you should have nails like that. Those nails are going to poke a fish’s eye out. Or anyone’s eye out for that matter.
We actually don’t know what this guy was trying to accomplish with those nails, but if it obviously made him any better at what he was doing, he might have been on to something. From what it seems, the photo still came out amazing. Good Job, but you’re still making this list!
The Muddy Wonder
Ah, nothing like a nice mud bath to get you started with the day, but then again this guy must have overdone it. When you are left with no sunscreen, mud will probably protect you from the powerful rays of the sun. This guy obviously did not care about the heat though, he calls it natural sunscreen.
It’s super funny, but when he probably looks at this photo after getting back from his vacation, he’ll probably start to wonder why he put it on his body in the first place. It makes us all wonder what he was trying to achieve here.
The Poser and the Stumbler
We just love the guy's face in this photo. He looks so confident posing for the photo; little does he know what's going on behind him. And to be fair, it is a beautiful background for a vacation photo. Boy, will she be disappointed (or cracking up with laughter, hopefully) when she sees her face in this photo.
It seems like she was trying to go for one of those mid-air jumping photos, but stumbled instead. Or maybe the photographer just snapped the pic two seconds too late. Regardless, this one's a keeper.
Nothing like a nice family vacation to France, especially when it comes to the awaited photo by the famous Eiffel Tower. However, it seems this kid didn't get the memo, and despite his parents doing their best effort to smile and pose, you can't help but look at the crouching kid with his head in the plastic bag.
We're not sure if he's looking for something or throwing up from jetlag, but he definitely ruined the photo. Sorry, buddy.
The Original Meme
We don't know what's more hilarious about this photo; the fact that they're all dressed the same, that they all have their dad's incredibly awkward smile, that they're all looking in a different direction, or just the sheer fact that this looks like something taken from the set of Revenge of the Nerds.
This is definitely one of the family photos most of these kids will never want to show in public. What's worse, we can't help picturing them all with his mustache.
Life in Canada
Apparently, all you need to snap a good family photo in Canada are a few pick-axes and a creepy-looking polar bear. We don't know if it's the polar bear's scary grin (or the dad's grin, for that matter), or that they seem to be inside an ice cave that just keeps making this photo weirder and weirder the more we look at it.
So many odd details; the father is dressed like a 1940s businessman, the daughter seems to be in pajamas, the one kid decided to bring the polar bear stuffed animal (because apparently, a life-sized one wasn't enough), the other kid brought something that looks like a Civil War weapon, and that mother just looks delighted! Canada is weird.
This is just wrong on so many levels. What are these people smiling about?! Maybe they knew she was going to be okay and thought "hey, this is a good opportunity for a family photo, let's just ask one of the free paramedics!"
Whatever was going on here, we're sure this wasn't a moment the woman on the stretcher wanted to remember. Her family's going to have some explaining to do when she recovers!
Mama Bear Needs Directions
This is either the worst case of car trouble we've ever seen or this family actually stopped to get a closer look at that mama bear and her cub. Regardless, we would seriously advise they get that car moving ASAP.
Or hey, maybe mama bear just lost her way through the woods and decided to stop by the road and ask a friendly car for directions.
"Daddy what the hell are you doing?!" And seriously, what was this guy actually doing? It looks like his attempt to show his baby its first camel went terribly wrong since it appears the camel is trying to get a taste of the baby's hand!
It seems the dad caught on pretty quick, judging by the look on his face. Definitely one of the most hilarious photos on our list, the expression on the baby's face is just priceless.
The New Sunbathing Trend
Did we miss the latest tanning tips from this year's Vogue beauty edition? Or is this girl using the tomatoes to calm her already burnt skin? Whatever this is, she doesn't look too happy. And she'll be even more miserable when she takes those slices off and realizes she has 6 big white circles on her legs.
Maybe her face has something to do with the fact that mom decided to take a photo at the worst possible moment. And yes, it's probably going in the family vacation photo album. Sorry, kid.
Not Happy at All
"Really, dad? We gave up Disney for this? Again?!" Seriously, though, these kids' parents couldn't think of a better vacation spot than a landfill? We're really hoping this was just a case of 'bring your kids to work' day.
Otherwise, the only credit we're giving the parents is the fact that they put safety first and made them wear helmets. The boy's expression is just hilarious, and the girl just looks like she doesn't even care anymore.
Grandma and the Chippendales
Well, this grandma seems to be having more fun than any of the other vacationers on this list combined. This woman looks determined, almost as if she was walking by with her family when she spotted the gorgeous Chippendales and decided she wasn't going to miss her chance.
And look at that, she even sat on one's lap for the photo! You go, grandma!
This guy seems to have been a victim of one of the worst sunburns in history, and what's worse, he probably didn't even realize it until it was too late. It seems sneakers are the only thing he's going to be wearing for the next few weeks.
These shoes are ugly enough as it is. Add a bad sunburn and you're sure to win first prize for the ugliest feet in the world competition.
Snoozing in Style
Are you sure you don't want some room service to go with your suite, buddy? We don't know how this man pulled this off, or if the bus driver even knows this is happening, but however this happened, we applaud him.
And look, there's even a pair of slippers waiting for him by the bus. Whoever said you couldn't travel in style while on a budget?
Worst Day Ever
Not only did this guy get completely buried in the sand, but he also got a disgusting present from a trio of seagulls. Doesn't he know the golden rule of never letting anyone bury you at the beach?!
While his kids (probably the ones who buried him in the first place) are probably crying with laughter at this hilarious scene, this man looks less than happy. All we can say is, thank god for sunglasses!
Best Sunscreen Ad
Not only will these two never forget to put on sunscreen again, but this will be the family photo they will show for years to come so the next generation never forgets it either! Just looking at this is painful!
We don't know how these two even intend to get out of their bathing suits without screaming in pain, but before they do, they should send this pic to Coppertone and see if they can get a deal for an ad campaign. If anything is going to make people wear sunscreen, it's this photo.
R-rated Family Photo
They say that nature is unstoppable, and these turtles are living proof of it. Either these two decided to get romantic at the worst possible moment, or that photographer just has bad timing. How about some privacy?!
One of the best parts about the photo, though, is the amusement on the people's faces. This is definitely one for the family album.
Dr. Dolittle Jr.
Yes, this photo is actually real. This little kid is, in fact, lying on the sand nonchalantly, with his monkey pal chilling on top of him, and a big, beautiful parrot perched on his knee. Now, this is a photo this kid can brag about for years to come.
Move over Dr. Doolittle, you've got much younger (and cuter) competition now!
The Star Trek Family
Please just delete this photo, guys. Even if just for the sake of those two kids not having to see how nerdy they looked when they were young.
Granted, those retro-spacesuits do look quite fun to wear, and they were probably purposely dressing up for the photo. But still, the hilarious cross between Star Trek and Revenge of the Nerds is just too hilarious to ignore.
Spot the Odd Face Out
If you haven't spotted the crazy kid in the photo, just look at the right upper corner. Doesn't that kid's expression make you wish you could shake his hand? We don't know about you, but this looks like a kid we could be friends with.
He looks so mischievous, it even looks as if there were a cloud of smoke coming from the top of his head! And oh the world of trouble he's in for when his mother realizes he ruined a perfectly good family portrait.
Kudos to these parents for not only remembering to bring the porta-potty but also for choosing such beautiful scenery for the kid to watch while he was doing his business.
And nothing like a sister's loyalty, standing faithfully next to her brother even in not so pleasant circumstances. This photo is definitely one for the books!
This Won't End Well
What we don't understand about this photo is how the person that was taking it wasn't having a heart attack! Maybe it's the angle, but that baby looks like it's two seconds away from falling into the ocean, and the family couldn't look more relaxed if they tried!
Hopefully, nothing happened and it'll just be a funny memory. And hopefully, this guy didn't get maimed by his wife after she saw this photo!
