      Talking British tourist complaints

      Sun too hot, drinks too strong: bizarre British tourist complaints


      September 21, 2009

      Hot weather, strong alcohol and melting ice cream were among the most
      bizarre complaints made by British holidaymakers this year, according to
      one online travel agent.

      Upon arrival in Portugal, one British family told Sunshine.co.uk of
      their distress at the sunny weather and complained that they were too
      “hot and sweaty” in their holiday clothes.

      One man told staff of his irritation at the number of holidaymakers who
      travelled with plain black suitcases, hindering his attempts to find his
      own plain black suitcase on the airport conveyor belt.

      After discovering that the shampoo in her luggage had leaked during her
      flight, one woman bemoaned the fact that the hotel she was staying in
      provided complimentary toiletries, rendering the entire incident “very

      Another woman wrote in to complain that her plane journey was a
      disappointment because the sky was far too cloudy, impeding the view for

      Following a trip to a local theme park, another woman wrote to the
      travel agent to complain that the Log Flume ride made her feet wet and
      the sun was so strong that her ice cream melted too quickly.

      One couple criticised the excellent children's entertainment at their
      resort – so good, in fact, that their children didn't want to spend any
      time with their parents, while another couple claimed that the lunchtime
      cocktails at their resort were surprisingly strong, leaving them rather
      worse for wear during the afternoon.

      “As much as we would like to guarantee that any problem will be dealt
      accordingly to prevent it from happening again, the weather, the alcohol

      Something similar is going round here in the U.K about Brits in Spain, so I am presuming it is all a joke - ha ha!
      One couple apparently complained about being offered alcohol in their all inclusive hotel and blamed the company for their resulting pregnancy!

      Many a true word spoken in jest

      We met another family on an all inclusive holiday in Crete, they complained that the food was greek!!!! They travelled into town everyday to get their daily fix of McD's. We however loved the greek food, which funny enough was one of the reasons we chose to go there.

      It was too hot though :p
