maybe you have already heard about that sign in Austria. It`s the most frequently stolen traffic sign in this country.

******* (German pronunciation: [ˈfʊkɪŋ]) is an Austrian village in the municipality of Tarsdorf, in the Innviertel region of western Upper Austria. The village is located 33 kilometres (21 mi) north of Salzburg, four kilometres (2.5 mi) east of the German border.

It gets even better. A Germany company wants to brew a "F_cking Hell" beer.

(unfortunately the article fails to explain the pun: the German word Hell = pale lager)

There was an old TV show on last night here in the UK featuring the Tuf Tuf club, a Dutch anti-speed camera group. They were putting up signs ahead of a police radar check - good times!

The Polish President tragedy scenario also happened with the president of FYROM not long ago, they were also using a very old Presidential airplane but in many ways the Polish case has been very tragic considering the death of both the President and the First Lady and many key people of Poland. I offer my deepest condolences to the Polish people. What sad times a large nation such as Poland have had to encounter.

Is it a caravans' sales ground or what?
I have seen many large caravans' selling places in the Netherlands, but never as huge as this one.

How long was that?

PS: My cousin has a nice roadtrip now because of the erupting volcano in Iceland. He must take a bus from Gent to Bratislava. 17 hours of traveling.

I originally wanted to take a route further south, but traffic congestion and a mis-estimate of mine caused me to take another east-west route.

I wanted to use A5 from Troyes to Langres, but as I lost over an hour in Maastricht and Liège due to severe backups, I decided to cut the trip somewhat shorter. I also mis-calculated the time it would take to cross the Ardennes from Liège to Reims. I thought it could be done in two hours (the entire route is 2x2) but it took somewhat more time, it was already around 2.30 pm when I arrived in Reims. So I arrived around 7 pm in the Pfälzerwald, where I found a nice campsite and I spent the night there.

It was cold, I had to scrape my car-windows this morning. Funnily enough, I had dinner at the exact same McDonalds I used exactly a year ago (Sankt Ingbert, not far from Saarbrücken).
