‘We were so drunk’: Newlyweds drunkenly buy their honeymoon hotel in Sri Lanka

A newlywed couple got something new on their honeymoon after they bought the hotel where they were staying following a drunken night. 

Gina Lyons, 33, and Mark Lee, 35, of London had a little too much to drink at a homey hotel on the beach in Sri Lanka last December and ended up with a $39,596 souvenir, according to the U.K.’s Mirror and Sunday Times. 

“When we were on the beach drinking rum” – 12 glasses to be exact – “we were told that the lease was almost up for the hotel,” Lyons told the Mirror. “The hotel looked grotty and very cheap, but it was by the beach and had the ‘wooden tree house’ feel that we like.”

That is when a light bulb went off in their heads: “After finding out that it was ($13,200) a year, myself and Mark thought that it would be a brilliant idea to buy it – because we were so drunk.”
