Any interesting travel moment or incidence

Near Karlovy Vary, Prague

I remember when I was in Karlovy Vary near Prague in Czech Republic and was caught by local police who was not speaking English. I was having this fancy beard so he had doubts and was apprehensive. The cop checked my passport and bags and even inquired a lot about other things. Then he thought it was his mistake, so he apologised and told me to have a delicious meal in one of the Indian restaurants over there. The incidence was creepy at first, but eventually turned out to be a cute experience.
