Three Norwegian tourists who planned a holiday on the island of Rhodes landed in the small agricultural town of Rodez in southern France on Monday after misspelling their intended destination on their Internet booking, French airport officials said yesterday. The three travelers were reportedly surprised when they arrived in Rodez, the little-known capital of the mountainous Aveyron region. “We were told of the mistake… and tried to make their stay as agreeable as possible,” a local tourism official told Reuters.
