‘Trying to get away’: Female tourist finds a way to escape tourist attractions
Female tourist, who went by the name ‘Sandra’, said she was desperate to leave a tourist attraction in Georgia.
She said: “They put me on a train and I had to go through a metal detector to leave the station.
They had no idea what I was talking about and I was really angry.”
Sandra says she has been in the US for five years, visiting the US twice. She said: “They had a train with about 40 other girls, all of them with long hair and I thought they were tourist girls.”
They all started to cry and said they could not go anywhere, they were so scared.
“But I knew I had a way out and I just walked off the train.”
Sandy’s friend, a female tourist, says: “I feel like it is not normal for tourists to leave their hotel, because they do not know if they are being followed.”
We did not leave any money.
We were afraid we would be fined for not paying our hotel bill.
“I do not have a visa so I am not able to stay in the country for longer than a couple of days.”
Georgia tourist attraction ‘unrecognisable’Sandra’s friend Sandra, who is from Georgia, said the women on the train had no way of telling if they were women or not.
She said that while it was a tourist tourist attraction, they should not have been put on the trains.
“You have to take care of yourself.
You have to be careful,” Sandra said.
Sandra said she did not have any idea how long she could stay in Georgia for, and she did feel a bit embarrassed to be wearing a skirt.
The Georgia Tourism Agency said they were aware of the incident and had begun a review.
Georgia Tourism Agency spokesperson, Stephanie White, said:”The Georgia Travel Agency has been aware of this incident and will be investigating it.”
Our tourism department has been working closely with local and international organisations to help ensure that our tourists are safe and protected.
There are no plans to restrict the use of our travel facilities.”
Sandy says the women did not speak English, so they did not know what to do.
It is unclear what kind of incident Sandra is referring to, but she said: ‘It is strange that women can walk away from tourist attractions in Georgia and be taken in a way that they have not done before.
‘I feel so humiliated and violated that they are doing that to me.'”
Sandra has contacted the Georgia Tourism Association and the Georgia Travel Authority.
