Difficulties can be difficulties, or they can be challenges. Interviewers at Expedia want to know if you enjoy a good challenge and rise to the occasion. Give them a story you enjoy telling. We get it, not everyone is a master story-teller, but make sure the problem is grave enough and the solution simple enough, or the outcome phenomenal enough.
