|"Thonged up" groom Danny & best man Rick in black top|
Benidorm is the most popular European destination for Stag & Hen groups - and now with the financial problems facing Cyprus, will probably get even more popular as those that chose the resort of Ayia Napa look to other European destinations.
I met up with groom Danny, best man Rick and the other lads outside their accommodation in the heart of Benidorm, on the Calle Gerona yesterday lunchtime, as they waited to be collected to go Go Karting in the complimentary stretch limo. They were all clutching bottles of water or lucozade - to me a sure sign of the morning after the night before!
As they waited in their shorts and t-shirts one of the group told me he had been speaking to his wife in the UK earlier who had just spent an hour trying to dig the car out of the snow! He found it staggering as some of the lads showed me the sunburn they had got from the previous day here - they needn´t worry as they´ll soon be covered up though.... it certainly is one extreme to the other! I fear that their return Jet2 journey back to Blackpool today may end up being delayed with the atrocious weather you are experiencing.

They had been to watch the legendary Sticky Vicky - a right of passage for all stag groups. One of the lads had seen her some 20 odd years ago and couldn´t believe that she was still going... Im not sure what will happen when she eventually retires which lets face it can´t be that far off, bearing in mind that she is on the verge of 70! I told them that at Christmas time she "produces" a lit up tree and their faces were a picture....

I wish Danny all the best for his forthcoming nuptials on 12th April - just hope that the snow stops by then and hope to see him coming back again, this time with the Mrs.
