Germany on Vacation


German tourists dig deep holes in Dutch and Danish beaches and steal “Beware of Moose” signs in Sweden and Norway.

The two things have to be connected somehow, or the world no longer makes sense! D:

I have a friend who visited Australia and stole one of the "beware of crocodile" signs-- he put it above his hot tub in the garden.

This is so true... how I loved digging holes and building dams on the beaches of Netherland when I was young. Since Germans are considered travel enthusiasts, I had the chance to dig holes in many european beaches. I liked Netherlands the best (compared to France or Spain) because the waves were not so strong, so sand structures lasted longer when the tide rose. Also the beaches are very flat, so a sand caste stayed "alive" for a long time - even if the tide pushed the water already 50 m further.
As for the swedish moose signs... I have a room which is completely decorated with (German) traffic signs. I wanted to get a moose sign when I visited Sweden a month ago but It looks like they are mounted on the poles realy good (I just looked, I did not take one *g*). In souvenier shops they were about 1000 SEK or 100 € which was a little bit too expensive... so no mooseys for me yet :(

They always keep digging holes. And if you make one yourself, and want to use it the next day, you'll get an irritated German saying: That ist mine pit.
But I love when they say it in their German Dutch, and they are probably right, because we don't bother to remember exactly where we were the day before...

The thing with the "Beware of the Moose" sing stealing is just so true... -.-
Actually, a lot of my friends, which were at ... lets just say somewhere in skandinavia (because i've forgot where exactly. duh) tried to steal some of those as some kind trophy...
When i asked one of them, why he didn't just buy one, he replied, that he did so, because the ones on the street had some kind of diffrent laqure (crap my english is really bad, isn't it?) then those you can legaly buy in the shop...
He endet up with one of those anyway, because he didn'twantet do risk his hunting licence on something that unimportend...

We have beware of moose signs in the US, too. Granted, only in some states, but they do exist! We have more entertaining signs, though, to steal than that...
