Pumpkin boat races
It is not a big deal, really. Just a regular person who is paddling a giant pumpkin in a river, you know. Well, this championship happens every year in Germany during autumn. Yachts become old school when the clock strikes midnight.
A magical fairy witch who turns boats to a floating pumpkin, but with a person on top of it… Isn’t it similar to the Cinderella’s story?
No speed limits
Have you ever been in a country when it is legal to drive at any speed you like? Germany offers their citizens to drive on Autobahns, which means there is no speed limit, at all. So once you are in Germany, rent a car, put the pedal to the metal, and then enjoy the adrenaline rushing through your veins. Just be careful, though.
If you see a man holding a shell in his mouth, then you just came across the deer-calling championship. Even if they look like they are speaking to the ocean through the shell, they are only imitating the deer mating call, and the best one wins. They may be risking their safety, but the fun is absolutely worth it.
Caution is a priority
Caution is Germany is “Vorsicht” and it is above everything else. They are ready to put on many signs on the road, even if there is a tiny pedestrian crossing the road in a faraway village somewhere where people don’t even pass by. Also, they carry many different signs to warn drivers from each angle.
Funny, warning signs
Speaking of signs, German people have a good sense of humor that they put it on their signs, too. For example, there is a sign of a man holding a child to a crocodile and it is written next to it “don’t feed your child to a crocodile”.
