Two Guys Go Out For A 'Quiet Beer' In England And End Up In Thailand
Two British buddies ended up halfway around the world after their relaxing night at the pub spun out of control.
Daily Mail reports that Phillip Boyle, 33, met up with Jamie Blyth, 33, and a few others for one drink in Middlesbrough, England, last Friday night.
The original plan was to have a beer or two, but Boyle and Blyth had thrown back more than that by the time they left the Southern Cross pub at about 1 am.
They even picked up some more beers at a gas station on the way to Boyle's house.
It was the next morning when Blyth, slightly hungover, came up with a ludicrous idea.
Boyle told the Daily Mail,
After lots of jokes, at around 11 am the next day with a hangover, Jamie asks if I had my passport handy and came up with the idea of us going to Thailand straight away. I thought he was joking at first and then he pointed out how there are quite a few lads from Middlesbrough over there we hadn't seen for a while.
The two hadn't booked a flight, but Blyth called a taxi and the pair headed to Manchester Airport.
Boyle's luggage consisted of a small bag filled with underwear and some T-shirts.
They were on the road when Boyle learned that this wasn't his friend's first spontaneous trip.
The taxi driver told me how Jamie had done this same last minute thing four times now, with him being the same driver to take him to Manchester in each case. I thought that was hilarious and then said 'OK, I'm in.'
It's not clear how long it took them to find a flight or when they left, but they eventually booked one with a layover in Abu Dhabi.
They reached Pattaya, which is a popular tourist resort in Thailand, after two seven-hour trips.
Boyle didn't elaborate as to what happened afterward, but the shenanigans seem to have left certain women very upset.
Some of the lads have serious girlfriends and kids and it's been pretty intense for some of them. I wouldn't like to be facing the grief that some of them will be inevitably going home to. But no-one's misbehaved to be fair. I think it's a place where younger lads would perhaps go crazy. I'm single right now -- so no consequences to face for me.
Boyle and Blyth will reportedly be flying back home on Tuesday.
