1850This is the excellent Kash, otherwise known as the Budget Traveller. He tells a story of a time when he visited Achill Island 11 years ago, a small island off the west coast of Ireland, which is where his best friend is from.

"He dragged me into the pub, bunch of locals looking at me in a weird way, the first Indian probably on the island. He gave me my first Guinness, I'd never drunk alcohol till then. After two pints I was really struggling, I'd been travelling all day and was really knackered.

"I said 'Paddy, I need to hit the couch'. He then told me this, and went to say that I should just enjoy the craic, enjoy the pint and have a good time. Two more pints later I was basically puking my guts out in the girls' toilets. I was so drunk I didn't even know which toilet I was in."

"I've had the pleasure of meeting Kash (we did a road trip around Florida together) and I can attest that he's taken this motto to heart. Lovely, lovely fella."
