The whole point of going on holiday is to take some time to relax. You don't have to get up early and you don't have to rush. You can spend your days lounging by the beach or pool without a care in the world. It's the dream.

However, some holidaymakers have a different idea. Twitter user @rcordonie uploaded this video of the morning rush to secure a sun lounger by the hotel pool at Playa del Ingles in Gran Canaria. She posted that the queues begin at 7.30am, with the pool gates opening at 8.00am.

We'd heard about this kind of thing happening, but it's not something we'd ever seen before because whenever we go on holiday we're still fast asleep at that hour. Securing a good sun lounger is important but not worth waking up that early.
