Couple Loses $7k on Dream Bali Honeymoon After Dog Chews Passport


THE ordeal that ruined this couple’s dream honeymoon takes the old excuse of “the dog ate my homework” to a whole new, very expensive level.

A COUPLE who had saved more than $7000 for their dream honeymoon in Bali ended up being turned away at the border, all because their dog had chewed a bit of the groom’s passport.

Daniel and Tia Farthing flew 16 hours from their home in the UK to Bali on October 16 — their first wedding anniversary — only to be told they couldn’t enter Indonesia.

Border officials told the couple Mr Farthing’s passport wasn’t in an acceptable condition and they were made to take the next flight back to the UK, leaving them devastated and well out of pocket.

They told The Mirror the passport has been bitten by their four-year-old labrador collie cross Milo when he was a puppy.

UK Border Force staff told him the passport would not be an issue for their trip to Indonesia, provided all the necessary details were in it, however Indonesian officials didn’t agree.

On their way home to Suffolk, UK, the couple had a stopover in Singapore where Mr Farthing said he was detained for seven hours.

Meanwhile a panicked Mrs Farthing ran up a phone bill of more than $390 trying to contact relatives back home.

When the couple eventually landed at London’s Heathrow Airport, they said a flight attendant who had been told of their ordeal looked at Mr Farthing’s passport and said: “Is that what all the fuss was about?”

With the couple having lost the $7000 they spent on the trip, Mrs Farthing’s sister has started a GoFundMe campaign to help them.
