    “Wife lost her passport, I lost a shoe. The army showed up. But all is well. If this becomes a big news thing, just want everyone to know that we are fine.”

    The author Jack Strange added: “Dalaman airport. Everyone starts running and screaming. Thought there was a terrorist attack.

    “Scariest moment of my life. Airport in disarray.”
