This time next week, myself and seven of my best friends are heading off to France for my stag do.
For me, there’s nothing worse than the thought of a group of men trailing around bars in somewhere like Blackpool or Newcastle.
So, not wishing to emulate a Club 18-30 holiday, we’re off to La Boule on the French Atlantic coast.
Apparently it’s a popular weekend destination for the beautiful people of Paris.
This place has everything we could possibly want – 12 miles of sandy beach for surfing, bars, restaurants and casinos. We may even take in the odd vineyard on the way.
But I’m relieved to hear new French president Francois Hollande has banned the mankini.
