WAG Watch: Charlotte Meares’ Travel Advice


Let no one say the WAGs of this world are not gainfully employed. 

Charlotte Meares, soon-to-be wifey of Jermain Defoe, has been hired by the Foreign Office in the UK to write a travel guide for the wives and girlfriends of football players. 

It is actually displayed on an official government website.

Gems of advice include checking in advance to see whether the location you are traveling to has a hair salon, in case of a hair extension or nail emergency. 

Hang on, we are having palpitations by the pure beauty of this literature and need to calm ourselves.

Other fabu bits of infotainment:

“An absolute must is travel insurance – one tumble off a bar table in your Jimmy Choos without insurance could cost you £20,000 worth of shopping money on your hospital bill! And whether you’ve got five Louis Vuitton cases full of designer gear or a beaten up bag full of Primark, you’ll want to know that if anything gets lost or stolen you will be covered.”

“Try and stay in pairs or 3’s at the end of the night, even if your mate meets a hunk and yours looks like a skunk, stay together and say you’ve got a headache.”

Think we’ve found our new favourite WAG, not to mention the next nominee for the Booker.

    “hired by the Foreign Office in the UK to write a travel guide for the wives and girlfriends of football players” I couldn’t believe this is real!! Well at least she got some social works to do though.

  4. Melissa says:

    UK Foreign Office, are you crazy? The people who proposed this stupid idea should be fired! Now, it becomes totally a JOKE! Charlotte Meares is not a WAG any more. She’s just Defoe’s ex! Victoria may be a better choice. At least she won’t divorce herself from Beckham whatever he’s done. Clever!

    Thanks very much for your sharing. It is really very helpful when we travel abroad. In my opinion, you must have a very nice time during your vocation because you are really a very considerate guy.

    I wonder if they would even consider Cuba. They will have to come a bit down to earth before.

    Great advice from Charlotte Meares..<img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  13. I admire the football player’s wives because they don’t really spend so much time next to them and I imagine it isn’t that easy.

  14. John says:

    Real good post yar. Helpful when people are unaware about these important things.

    I Read About His In The Paper.. I Dont Think Its A Bad Idea Really… Some People Might Need Some Advice!!

  20. Helena says:

    Oh Gawd..this could be the thin edge of the wedge.
    I suppose the Department of Environment will next ask Alex Curran to help promote the WAGS guide to loft and cavity insulation for footie wives mock tudor mansions! 

    I hope the government is not wasting my taxes on hiring WAGS to help state the bleedin’ obvious!!
