A stag party have revealed the “hilarious” mission they embarked on to get one of their pals home from Poland after he lost his passport. A terribly funny article from the “Daily Mirror”
What Went Wrong With The Stag Party
Groom-to-be David Mair and 11 of his friends jetted to Krakow for the weekend ahead of his marriage to partner Laura Fisher next month.
But the celebration was almost thrown in chaos when reveller Stephen Currie realised he was missing the crucial item as he arrived at the airport in Poland.
Determined not to end the occasion on a sour note, his friends rallied together to think of how they could get Stephen back home on Scottish turf.
After concocting various scenarios, they turned to Google Translate to try and buy a second-hand car on the cheap to drive the 1,500 miles.
Pal John Rodger explained: “It was the Thursday and we had a few drinks before we went.
“We started looking into travelling to the British Embassy, but it was turning out that he would need to get the train into Warsaw and it would be Wednesday before that would happen.
“So Stephen suggested that he buy a car and drive home instead.”
At first, the group laughed at the idea and thought he was joking, but it wasn’t long before he was on Google Translator and haggling to buy a silver Vectra over Facebook .
The group managed to purchase the vehicle for 1200 Zloty – which is around £240.
John added: “So the car turns up at our apartment, we get on the phone to sort out insurance and the paperwork we need to get it home and enjoyed the rest of the weekend.
“There ain’t no stopping us boys. Drove from Poland to Germany to Holland to Belgium to France. Ferry across the water and boom, homeward bound!”
What They Should’ve Done
They could’ve easily saved themselves all this trouble by booking a Stag Party within the UK.
Rough Guides, , the leading publisher of travel and reference information known for its ‘tell it like it is’ attitude, accurate, up-to-date content and informed contemporary writing have described the Adventure Britain canyoning experience in Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) as “..being up there with the best wet and wild experiences in the world!”
