You might think that us, girlfriends, hate the idea of you and your mates getting drunk in a pub, which is (almost) always true but it all depends on the situation. See there is a massive difference between drinking bad tasting beers in a busy, dirty, and crowded pub, and drinking great tasting beer in a (more or less) sophisticated location such as; at a beer tasting event in Germany, to celebrate a hard chore adventure in the Peak District or even at a daytime beer spa in Switzerland. These are all great compromises to make sure your lady doesn’t get too worried about you getting a bit too crazy on the dance floor, but still allowing you to enjoy a great day with your best mates.
For the trips below, we recommend you pack your suitcases smartly, so if you’re going for a more outdoorsy trip then don’t forget to pack enough layers in case you fall in the lake, or just get a bit chilly, but if you’re more of a beer tasting type of guy then make sure you take that nice shirt your other half got you for Christmas. Not only will that make her or him super happy, you will also want to look sharp on all the selfies that will get around your circle of friends!
Organise a 2-day canoe trip

Fire a tank in the Russian capital
Who said a good stag do or lads weekend had to be around the theme of alcohol?

Back to the beer… how about a beer spa?
I know, you’re probably thinking we are joking, but we’re really not! This spa is a 45 minutes drive from Salzburg and is probably one of the best beer spa experiences in Europe (if not one of the only ones). The experience includes different beer-related activities such as; beer baths, beer treatments, and beer pairing menus in the hotel restaurant! Who knew bathing in a large tub of beer could have ever become a thing…
Or you boys could also… fly a plane!
We’ve decided to literally end this list on a high (no pun intended!). Having had the experience of flying a plane myself, I’ve got to admit there is nothing more thrilling than getting into an aircraft for an hour and touring the skies. Better yet, if your mates are up for even more of an adrenaline rush, you could also get them to jump in a parachute whilst you’re having your lesson. This experience might be a bit pricier than the others but definitely a once in a lifetime trip you’ll never forget. There are loads of flying experiences dotted around the Uk just make sure to book in advance!
