I’m pretty sure a few friends from my days in online marketing will be spitting their tea out to see me post an infographic. I can be a bit of a grinch when it comes to blogger outreach, but Hotels4U have produced a really nice wee piece of marketing material here. When I read it, my heart must have grown three sizes, because here I am sticking it on my blog.
Some of the statistics surprised me; I can’t believe the French eat 500,000,000 snails a year! My own opinion on escargots is coming up soon, btw.
One statistic that didn’t surprise me was the first one. 27% of UK holiday makers take tea bags abroad with them, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m one of those Brits. My love of tea is so strong that one of the first presents James bought me was a travel sized pack of Tetley to take with me on the spontaneous jaunts we used to book in the early days of our relationship.
Unfortunately, my friends seem to be part of the 73% who don’t take teabags on holidays with them. When they came to visit me in France for a week they absolutely ripped through my cache of Typhoo. Guys, you’re only meant to use one tea bag per cup! We don’t have Morrisons in France, you know.
Thankfully they brought me some Irn Bru, so all is forgiven.
Anyroad, here’s the Hungry Traveller Foodie Facts infographic!
So after reading that, who’s up for a trip to Goa? The beer’s are on me.
This post is sponsored by Hotels4U. Opinions, ridiculous as they may be, are mine own. Unfortunately so are the tea drinking friends: although if Hotels4U would like to make me an offer on them, I’m open to discussion…
