None of us is immune. Whether we admit or not, we’re all likely to have some horrible holiday habits.
They’re the things we do despite being told we shouldn’t. Or knowing we shouldn’t.
Through our Facebook page, we recently asked the BIG4 family to reveal their worst holiday habits. And there were plenty of holidaymakers willing to fess up…
‘I always pack too much. I'm a ‘just in case’ kinda gal.’
‘No matter how organised we are before leaving, we always forget something important.’
‘Packing too much.’
‘Overpacking. My mum always, every holiday, packs something sharp in her carry-on by mistake.’
‘Wife packing the kitchen sink, and everything that goes with it, and never using any of it.’
‘Eating and drinking too much.’
‘Eating chocolate every night when the kids are in bed.’
‘Eating too much ice cream. (We get) ice cream from every ice cream shop in every place we visit!’
‘Overpacking and overeating.’
‘Spending so much money on food.’
‘Taking the kayaks away on every holiday, but they are yet to feel the water!’
‘Snoring. In fact, loud snoring. This is caused by happy hour going way too long, and that extra glass of red just adds to the problem.’
‘I have started to do ‘click and collect’ for our groceries. Oh, and drinkies. What a breeze that is.’
‘I bring my hammock to every camping trip. I have a bad habit of literally spending all my time in it!’
‘Thinking I’m home and using my caravan water like it will never run out. I never realised how much water I used until I ran out!’
‘I always go overboard buying new clothes for holidays and then can’t fit everything in the cupboards when we get back.’
‘Not being able to stay longer.’
‘Getting back home and realising we left something behind. Every time.’
‘Getting yelled at if I help direct the camper in, or if I don’t! Can never win that one!’
‘I know the feeling there. I now walk away. Me and hubby have a mutual agreement now (that) he can do it himself, as we end up fighting.’
‘Honestly? Not shaving my legs for weeks. Dead set look like a lumberjack before I whip out the chainsaw to trim those beauties!’

‘Planning what could be an amazing time away and then never actually booking time away.’
