Peru Two drug mule Michaella McCollum revealed that she once sniffed coke and ketamine off a table in McDonald's.
The 28-year-old served two years in a Peruvian prison after being caught with accomplice Melissa Reid with $1.6 million worth of cocaine.
Michaella confided that she was high on drugs when she made the ill-advised trip, for which she agreed to smuggle drugs for a man named Davey.
She thought she would only be travelling from Ibiza to Barcelona.
Now, Michaella is releasing a new edition of her memoir with the updated title High to compliment a BBC documentary of the same name, the Irish Mirror reports.
She revealed: “I’d taken so much of all of them during the five weeks I’d been there that I honestly didn’t see the problem.
“We were in that Ibizan bubble. In my addled logic, everyone I knew took drugs and they had to get them from somewhere.
“I saw lifting this package no differently to how I would see some kind of cash-in-hand payment.
“Not legal, as such, but a minor crime at worst, like a traffic offence.
“As the party wore on, I got more and more drawn into the hedonistic mood of the day. Everyone was high and, just to make things even more animated, I was persuaded by a group of friends to drop some acid.

“At one point I could have sworn one of the club staff was a train conductor trying to show me to my seat.
“Another time, I was seeing Disney characters everywhere.
“Basically, of all the drugs, acid is not the one to be on when there are decisions to be made.
“By the time Davey caught up with me later, I might as well have been in outer space.”
After an all-night party, Michaella was ready for the drug run early the next morning, but had to make one more stop at the airport.
She explained: “When Davey said we were meeting someone at McDonald’s I thought he was a mind reader. I desperately needed coffee and breakfast.
“I ordered the full works and was just about to tuck in when a familiar face bowled in.
“It was Davey’s business partner – the Brummie. Some things don’t change.
“Our breakfasts were on two trays in front of us. The first thing the Brummie did was swat them aside then lay down lines of K [ketamine] and coke.
“Of everything I’ve done, everything that I regret, sniffing Class A drugs off a table in McDonald’s is up there. But that’s hindsight for you.”
