A drunk tourist had a few drinks in a bar in Italy and decided to head back to his hotel. What he did instead was climb the Italian Alps in his drunken state.

Pavel, the Estonian tourist, must have been more drunk than he thought. He didn’t even notice that he took a wrong turn until it was much too late. According to news.com, he didn’t stop hiking until 2 a.m. when he realized his mistake.

The 30-year-old got so, so lucky. He happened to come across a closed restaurant and bar up at 2400 meters above sea level. Pavel broke in and slept there, where employees found him.

Apparently, the fire brigade, police and drones were all sent out to find the lost tourist before finding him at the bar. He will reportedly be fined, but not charged.

The plus side is that Pavel now has the absolute best story to tell his friends back home.
