    My curiosity has landed me ...

    please check

    My curiousity has landed me somewhere where I shouldn't have. That was the worst experince I ever had in my life.

    Please check if the above sentences make sense. Can I replace the word "landed" with some other word. I think the word "landed" seems little awkward here.

    Note my corrections above.

    "Landed" is OK. You could use "taken".

    Note the change in spelling from "curious" to "curiosity".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Landed sounds good to me, you could use brought too. It's not clear whether we are talking about a current situation or a past situation because you switch tenses from present perfect to simple past. One possible way to write the sentence is like this:

    My curiosity landed me somewhere where I shouldn't have been. That was the worst experience I (had) ever had in my life.
