I’m placing this picture here so the next picture doesn’t show up on your social media site, unless you want it to – then, well…sorry?
Real post starts now.
Not often do I plead with my husband to take me on a road trip when we’re in Kirchberg, but when I saw that this town existed and was only a few short hours away, well how could he say no? Easily.
Me: Oh. My. God. There’s a Fucking, Austria!
Volker: It’s pronounced “Vooking”
Me: Not where I come from. It’s only two hours away! We can’t get there by train but we could rent a car and drive. If we left now we could be back by dinner.
Volker: Are you insane? Why?
Me: Why!? So we can take a picture by this sign! What is wrong with you?
Volker: Yeah. No.
So I called my sister, Sherli (I know). We spent some time designing a T-shirt. Fucking, Austria’s Tourist Board should definitely call us.
And here it is on a map.
Me: Does that look like a penis?
Volker: I don’t even know how to respond to that. No, unless it was involved in a terrible accident, then maybe.
While we can’t compete with Fucking, we do have a Bald Knob here in Arkansas. Please tell me there are more awesome town names out there. Oh the places you can go.
