Luke Harding was on his way home from a nightclub in Manchester when he drunkenly booked a flight to Paris on his phone and directed the cab to the airport instead. The next thing he remembers is waking up in a toilet stall in Charles de Gaulle — which, face it, we’ve all been there. Like any savvy tourist, he took advantage of the eight hours of hang-over before his return flight to eat a croissant in front of the Arc de Triomphe and snap some pics with the Eiffel Tower. The 19-year-old is now something of a hero among mates and strangers on Twitter, which probably isn’t making his mom too happy. [Punch]
