six o'clock in the morning, and sometimes at 4 in the morning? During a lively discussion on Tiktok, tourists from different countries identified the main fans of the battle for a “place in the sun” to the detriment of other vacationers. The first place, including, by their own admission, was taken by the British.
“I am in an English hotel in Spain, and I can clearly confirm that it is us, the British. There are a lot of sun beds occupied by towels – and not a single German in the hotel, ”one of the tourists voted for the British. A German commentator agrees with him: “I am German, but I live in the UK. During my last holiday in Greece, only the British hung their towels on the sunbeds until six in the morning,” he writes. The list also includes the French – one of the tourists says that they are also ready to get up at five in the morning to take a sunbed by the pool. The Germans also get it.
“These people may seem insane, but in some ways their fights for a place in the sun are inspiring,” said another tik toker Alice Benham. According to her, for the first five days of the vacation, she was simply confused by the number of sunbeds occupied. By observation, the tourist found out that the “fighters” specifically set alarms for 4-5 in the morning in order to win back the best sunbed for themselves, and even engage in “martial arts” with competitors.
However, she is still not ready for such “exploits,” the blogger adds. “I'm just not ready to go for it even for a sun lounger. I calmly wake up at 11 am, even skipping breakfast. Get a sunbed – well, no – I'll calmly sunbathe on the mattress. And I want to ask those who fight for sunbeds every day – is it really worth it? Getting enough sleep on vacation, in my opinion, is the main gift – and I would not want to wake up with an alarm clock, as if I were going to work, ”said Alice.
Among the 130 thousand users who watched this video, there were also ready to explain to her the position of the “fighters for sunbeds”. “I still get up at six in the morning every morning. I take a sunbed, have breakfast and sunbathe, ”said, for example, one commentator. There was also a place for the voices of tourists who are already tired of the always busy sunbeds. “If there is no one, take off your towel and lie down. I always do that!” – they said.
