No Kangaroos in Austria!



When I was in Austria in 2011, I was only mildly bemused by the above image. I read it as saying, tourists, we’re making fun of you, but buy this “No Kangaroos in Austria” tee-shirt, and you can be in on the joke! Except you just paid €20. So, joke’s still on you.

But yesterday, I was applying for a copy of my birth certificate with an apostille over the phone (a requirement for my Austrian visa), and the woman at the vital statistics office kept saying Australia. She got kind of huffy with me, but I made her spell the country name out, and sure enough, I was applying for an apostille to head to the land down under. Oops.

Sigh. Maybe I should get one of those tee-shirts.

  2. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future
    and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you few interesting things or advice. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about it!
