Sun, beach, sea and sometimes a few cocktails: this is how you imagine the honeymoon. It spent the newly married couple Gina Lyons (33) and Mark Lee (35) in Sri Lanka in a dream hotel right on the beach. The first evening they made friends with the hotel bartender and drank a lot of rum. The mood was exuberant and the barman talked that the hotel's lease would expire soon.
A couple of glasses of rum later decided the couple to buy the hotel. "After we found out that it only cost £ 10,000 a year, Mark and I thought it would be a brilliant idea – probably because we were so drunk," Gina told the Daily Mirror.
