I see three unconnected consecutive posts. That sign looks funny, but not so stupid. And that traffic set looks pretty cool, makes me wanna become a child again. (hofburg, I wanted to check out your German photos)

I dammed a small stream in Ireland once, and I made a 100m long road on a beach in Portugal

Not that, but once I built with my cousins the Pyramids of Giza in the beach. I once tried to make the Pokemon world, when it was only the Kanto region. And of course many castles and trenches leading to the sea were built by me.

Do you think that they asked for my permission? I found out about this today from SSC-Romanian section. About a week ago they also published a road-video made by me.

@DanielFozFig: you spelled my nickname wrong on RO thread

i didn't like sand because i couldn't drive my cars (toys) there. we had a large terrace at home where i used to draw the roads and intersections with chalk, and i used to draw them on large sheets of paper. sand was good for building infrastructure (tunnels), but not for playing itself. however, i only enjoyed making and drawing those roads. after finishing it i played maybe half an hour with it

When I was young, I went along with my parents on family visits. We always turned off at this motorway interchange, and I always wanted to know what there was to see if you continued down the road. I guess that's where it started for me. I also was into maps and geography, being the topographic geek of the school getting straight A's without learning. Google Earth completed it for me. It's among my personal top 3 internet inventions.

When I was small, I was so interested in roads that I always slept or threw up when we were driving. I remember when we went to Salzburg by car in 1992. When I saw a sign by Villach saying ~180 km to Salzburg, I thought it would never end, because I had never seen such a long distance in Slovenia. When we went to Rome by bus in 1993, I was shocked that we had to drive all night.

omg the same thing happened to me!
1. each time when we traveled to Zagreb we passed by a sign which indicated motorway at left turn for 20 km. i was dying to know where it lead, and we never went there. i told myself that i will drive there as soon as i get licence. irony: i was alerady attending driving school, we went to Zagreb and there was road closed due to accident, so we took the bypass on that road which indicated motorway
2. similar thing, but in opposite direction: we allways took of the Zagreb bypass at the same exit, and i wanted so much to see where the motorways continued

geography and topography? i knew all European and major world's countries' capitals in the age of 4 my favourite toys were atlas of the world and road map of Yugoslavia

I got interested in roads in 1996 when I was only 3 years old, we went to Italy, and I loved the lots of tunnel we travelled trough. And since then I'm interested in maps (my father always made me an itinerary when we travelled) and motorways, because the high speed and the design.
