Brits behaving badly

Image
What European country is home to the most reckless vacation goers?


The answer: Great Britain. No other European nation drinks more while on vacation than Britons do, according to a TripAdvisor survey of 6,671 European travelers.


65% of Britons drink more while on a trip abroad than they do at home; in comparison, 41% of other Europeans (including Italians at 28%) drink more. 29% of Britons drink five or more alcoholic beverages while on vacation, while only 10% of other Europeans do so.

What followed was an embarrassing capture and deportation after only 2 days in the country. Political sources are now questioning the necessity of such a 'cloak and dagger' mission - with some speculating that this grand failure was in fact an attempted assassination plot 'gone awry'. As Hague's position in popularity polls couldn't be falling faster, he also made the decision yesterday to come out in…

It only takes 15 minutes to marinate.Perhaps you have a fishmonger at your local farmer's market such as the super one we have at Melrose Place every Sunday? Wholefoods is a reliable favorite too. Wild salmon is prefered as opposed to farmed, due to toxins.
