Man travels 31,000 miles in 3 months to go on 16 stag dos
It is fair to say that Will Stevenson from Nottingham likes a stag do. In fact, he has flown over 31,000 miles this summer to go on 16 different stag dos with people he has not even met before.
The adventure all started when the 35-year-old went on a weekend-long Budapest stag do after bidding for a place on the trip on eBay.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Will Stevenson, said, “One of the groom's mates dropped out, so they auctioned his seat.
“I had a free weekend and was thinking about going to a festival but thought this would be a laugh.
“I never expected to win, but the day after the auction closed I was going to Budapest with 22 lads I'd never met before.
“It was a bit scary to start with but once we got to know each other it was a great laugh.”
Radio 1 pick up story
The office manager’s story caught the attention of Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills. After the public announcement about his trip to Budapest, Mr Stevenson was flooded with offers from stag parties who had a vacant spot.
Will Stevenson has since travelled to Amsterdam twice, Madrid, Barcelona twice, Magaluf twice, Gran Canaria, Tenerife and even Blackpool.
On every trip the man from Long Eaton has taken his little mascot Seth, a cuddly toy badger, with him and this has captured the imagination of the nation as the little toy is snapped in every destination he visits.

Although Will Stevenson has often only been asked to pay to change the name on a flight, his adventures have in total cost him a staggering £10,000, which has mostly been spent on booze.
The stag dos don’t stop there for Will, as he is booked to go on more stag dos to Melbourne and Las Vegas, whilst also being invited to a number of weddings.
