If you’re always looking out for scenic destinations to travel to, new experiences and most importantly, to get happy drunk in new cities – you’ve come to the right place. No one said you couldn’t mix your wanderlust with your love for alcohol into one (or five) epic drunkcation(s)!
It’s kind of obvious that Germany would be on the list, considering Oktoberfest is right here! Why visit cheap, non-authentic versions of the festival in India when you could head to the city where it all began. Overflowing beer, classic German food with steaming hot sausages being a staple and cheery good-natured Germans dressing up, singing and dancing – what more could you want?
Again, we’d be missing out if we didn’t mention France. The vineyards, wineries, cellars are all so enticing! But visit Champagne (yes, it’s the wine region where the drink originated) and go wild with the bubbly. You can take part in the champagne tasting, the wine cellar tours and so much more. Make it a longer trip by visiting Provence, and be very very wine-drunk.
Get your sake on in one of the many pubs Tokyo has to offer. The izakayas there are tiny bars that are solely dedicated to getting you super drunk on rice wine sake, and who are you to refuse? You could also head to Kyoto while you’re in Japan to visit the Geigganake Okura Sake Museum – yep, it’s a museum dedicated to the tools and methods responsible for birthing this beautiful liquor.
Trust us when we say, once you’ve had Polish vodka, you can’t go back to your regular Absolut. The many vodka tours that Krakow provides should leave you a red-faced, giggling mess but what’s even more inviting is the Polish food that accompanies your favourite liquor. The party city also organises many pub crawls if beer is more your thing.
We wouldn’t leave you whisky lovers behind, would we? Islay is a small island in Scotland, but it has a big reputation for being one of the best producers of single malts in the world. There are 8 distilleries that produce some of the finest whiskies, brought to the island by monks in the 14th century, and a tour around them all will leave you begging for more, and very drunk.
