Today’s award goes to an inebriated Estonian tourist in Italy.
A DRUNK tourist had a very rough night after he got lost on his way back to his hotel and found himself climbing the Italian Alps.
An Estonian tourist known as Pavel, has been enjoying a few drinks at Cervinia, a resort in Italy’s Valle d’Aosta, when he decided to call it a night and head back to his hotel.
However, it seemed that Pavel, 30, may have had a bit more to drink than he thought as his short walk back to his room soon turned into a mountain hike.
According to Italian newspaper La Stampa, Pavel seemed not to notice that he had taken a wrong turn and was heading up the mountain side until it was too late.
By the time 2am rolled around and Pavel was still climbing, he realised that he has made a grave mistake, but through sheer luck he stumbled across a closed restaurant and bar.
The bar, named Igloo, was nestled on the mountainside at an altitude of 2400m and, seeing it as his only refuge, the tipsy tourist forced his way in and bunkered down for the night.
Staff discovered Pavel in the morning, passed out on a makeshift bed made out of a bench and a few cushions.

Estonian, eh? Well, he was certainly E-stoned . . . and he added altitude sickness to a hangover. Doofidity indeed!
