Pub crawl sees man end up 1 675 miles away
We’ve all enjoyed the casual pub crawl, but one man took it to a new level, accidentally.
Another aspect of drinking most party people have been through is that “waking up in a strange place, clothes still on but not really quite sure of the events leading up to that moment,” scenario.
Sometimes you also have the odd ‘battle scar’ scrape or bruise, but usually your friends are nearby ready to laugh at you, exploiting your doings of the previous night.
I bet none of your stories can top that of a Romanian dude named Mihai Danciu.
The last thing Mihai remembers is enjoying a few drinks with friends at their local, excited about his future job prospects.
Next thing he knows, it’s a week later and he’s on the ground, with a black eye, surrounded by people speaking a foreign language.
And I will walk 500 miles, and I will walk 500 more
Unfortunately this story is not as romantic as the classic by The Proclaimers.
Our friend Mihai actually ended up 1 675 miles away from his hometown in Romania, to lying face down in a court yard of a Central London building.
Luckily for Mihai, he was taken to Whipps Cross hospital, where a Romanian nurse spoke to him, confirming that he was indeed in London.
Nurse Adina Costache shared Mihai’s story on social media, hoping someone could shed some light on Mihai’s mission.
Local media in Romania have taken the case upon them and can confirm that Mihai was last seen drinking with his friends a week earlier.
He lived with his partner and their children in her grandparents’ home, and neighbours say he is a nice guy, except for his drinking.
The tale of Mihai and his literal pub crawl / train ride / “I’m 1 675 miles away, in London” saga will hopefully unfold with some juicy answers.
