There are no kangaroos in Austria! June 8, 2009

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.

This became a well-worn joke during my Academic Year Abroad in Salzburg, Austria back in 1989. So much so that I have a twenty-year-old t-shirt with the above slogan. Sadly, it really is true that folks confuse Austria and Australia, because one of my letters that year arrived months later because it had been directed to Australia by one well-meaning yet inept postal worker. So it really made me chuckle to see this Adam@Home comic in my e-mail in box this morning.

I lived for two years in Taranto, in southern Italy, and that caused lots of confusion too: Taranto, Italy vs Toronto, Canada.

I would like to know what is the translation of Fruit vinegar in Austrian

Well, it’s an odd request, but the translation is Obstessig. Care to share why you want to know?
