If you love international travel, you’ve probably crossed a few borders in your days. Usually those crossings go smoothly, but occasionally, they can go ridiculously awry. On this month’s episode of the Globejotting Travel Show, listeners share their most insane stories of border crossings and police encounters.

Tara Swenson was going through airport security when German police informed her they had detected explosives in her carry-on bag. You won’t believe what they busted her for after conducting a thorough search.

Joe Laumer rode his motorbike from Uzbekistan into Kazakhstan. When he tried to change money at the border, he ended up in a full-blown wrestling match on the floor – in a pile of cash

On the island of Borneo, Kate Werner was attacked by centipedes, chased by monkeys, and stopped on the road at gunpoint (by humans, not monkeys or centipedes) – all in 72 hours.

Tara, Joe, and Kate join Dave Fox to divulge their stories of “Borderline Insanity.”
