The vending machine in many developed economies is a regular fixture in transport hubs, office buildings and petrol stations. Nearly every conceivable consumer good has found its way behind a vending machine display case, from gourmet ready-to-eat meals, to 10 gram bars of pure gold, and – in Japan – even ladies' panties to satisfy the fetish habits of perverts disembarking the subway.

Vietnam experience: You never know when...

We rarely think of personal disasters or unforeseen circumstances when we travel.
