Google Sightseeing

I use google maps all the time. The idea of google sightseeing is entertaining at least in a passive sense. As long as I don’t have to search out new ideas for what to look at and can just look at the RSS reader every once in a while and go “oh, that’s interesting…”, then I’m happy.

I was looking at it recently and noticed the “top 10 rudest place names in Britain”. Now, I’ve never been to any of those, but at the bottom it mentions a place a little closer to home. It links to an older article on Fucking, Austria.

As many of you may know, I’ve been there a few times now when we’ve had guests, and think it’s a wonderful photo opportunity. We usually do Burghausen, Fucking, and Altötting in one day, it’s a great day trip (you need a car to do it).
Anyways, here’s a few pictures from our trips there:

My brother, Petra, and I:

no more Fucking, Austria *sniffle*:

(sorry if you’re easily offended, it’s supposed to be funny)

    The Germans are not known for their sense of humour and as Basil Fawlty once said “Don’t Mention The War”. I wonder if they have a place called Sense of Humour because they certainly don’t have one. My other half is Austrian and I couldn’t stop him laughing.
