While there may be better ways to get there, it's somehow reassuring to know that you can just hop into a cab in the U.K. and be driven to Oktoberfest:
Hogan, 54, was sitting at a rank when the customer called Dave ran up and jumped in the back of his cab.
He explained he had to get to the Munich beer fest as soon as possible as he had missed a flight for his friend's stag night.
The trip wound up costing £1,950 - that, apparently, is the price of friendship! It's unclear if the cabbie was able to get a fare for the trip back to Portsmouth... (via Fark)
