Funniest international experience: Probably the day my husband proposed to me. Although he had been living in the Bay Area for awhile, it was only my second time visiting the US. He had it all planned. He was going to pop the question under the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. The romantic experience turned out somewhat comical when we decided to start our journey to the bridge from near the Giants Stadium. It not only took us 10 hours to arrive, but we also missed the sunset (and the bridge itself, for that matter) because it had started to rain by the time we got there.
