Melbourne, May 19 (ANI): Forty per cent of Aussie women have gone through a holiday romance, and many of them have even married their holiday sweethearts, a study has shown.

A survey of over 800 female travellers by travel website lastminute.com.au found that 40 per cent of women have admitted to having a holiday fling, an increase of 10 per cent from two years ago.

Meanwhile, 15 per cent ended up marrying their holiday lover, up from five per cent two years ago, with half of the couples having children.

“There has been an increase in the number of Aussie women marrying their holiday sweetheart, which shows that there’s been more on the itinerary than just sightseeing,” the Courier Mail quoted Mia Carter of lastminute.com.au as saying.

“One of our customers said she is getting married this July, six years to the day that she met her fiancé overseas in Europe.

“Another said she first bumped into her man on the ski slopes in Austria, and they’ve now been married for 10 years,” she added.

While the most popular place for women to meet their flings is at a pub or bar, the survey showed that romance could bloom in surprising locations.

“It seems that holiday romances can start anywhere. Some say they first met their holiday honey at places like the beach, on a plane, during a meditation weekend, on the ski slopes and even a nudist colony,” said Carter. (ANI)
