    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 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

    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. :confused: We however loved the greek food, which funny enough was one of the reasons we chose to go there. :biglaugh:


    It was too hot though :P:biglaugh:
