The Sundomes of Bavaria

8 Jul

Like Bart Simpson, who took a belated road-trip to Tennessee for the 1964 World's Fair because of an outdated tour book in the glove compartment , an elderly American Tourist found himself mired in mud in a Bavarian forest because his guide book was 90 years out of date. After being rescued by a farmer, local police attempted to assist him:

He showed them a copy of a travel guide entitled "Beautiful Bayreuth" and published on the eve of World War I in 1914.

"He told us he had read it over and over as a boy and had always wanted to visit the places listed in it," said a police spokesman in Bad Berneck.

"But owing to the Great Depression and the war and raising a family and working all his life, he said he never got around to actually travelling abroad until now."

Well, I guess your never too young (or young at hear) to get lost.
