Originating from the city of Limerick in Ireland, limericks are a witty or humorous verse or poem, which were made famous by Victorian writer Edward Lear.
Sunday 12th May was National Limerick Day, and a time to celebrate these popular five-line poems.
It also gave us the chance to have some fun in the office and think of a few travel-related limericks featuring some of our favourite destinations...

There was an old man from Italy,
Whose family all lived in Sicily,
He got on a boat,
With his trusty old goat,
And now he lives very peacefully.
A man booked a hotel in Lanzarote,
To find himself some totty,
He asked a girl for a dance
But she said he didn’t have a chance
As his face was a little too spotty!
There was a young man called Pete,
Who went to a bar in Crete,
He drank so much booze,
He lost both his shoes,
And now he has sunburnt feet!
