A Couple Got So Drunk on Their Honeymoon They Bought the Hotel

I’ve made PLENTY of bad choices while I was drunk.  But THIS is a new one . . .

A 33-year-old woman named Gina Lyons from London and her 35-year-old husband Mark Lee went on their honeymoon to Sri Lanka back in December.  And they LOVED the small hotel they were staying at.

But one night, while they were about 12 glasses of rum deep, they found out the hotel was going to shut down because the owners either couldn’t or wouldn’t make the lease payments.

And when Gina and Mark found out those payments were around $40,000 total for three years . . . they BOUGHT the hotel on the spot and signed a new three-year lease.

The problem is . . . it’s not like they’re rich.  Once they sobered up, they panicked over what they’d done . . . but a deal is a deal.

So they sunk in another $8,000 for some renovations and reopened the hotel in July.  They’re calling it Lucky Beach Tangalle, and they say, fortunately, business has been GREAT.
