I spent the entire last month vacationing in Austria. I mostly traveling through Upper Austria between Vienna and Salzburg. The following are some photos I took during my travel.
The border between Germany and Austria is wide open. There are no border guards, except a small sign telling you that you are entering another country.
For 6.99 Euros, young boys in Austria can practice safe shaving with this kit:
I saw these Skinhead and Neo-Nazi graffiti scribbled on a couple of park benches near Germany-Austria border:
The trip to Austria is not complete without visiting the Town of Fucking, and it is fucking beautiful:
and Oberfucking, or Upper-Fucking:
The word "Schmuck" means "jewelry" in German, "idiot" in American slang, and "foreskin" in Yiddish. Thus, I always laugh when I see a "schmuck" shop sign.
If you thought the Japanese had some strange ingredients on their pizzas, but Austrian are not too far behind with their creations:
Corn and Ham
Tuna fish and Onion
Teletubbies, or Telechubbies, are selling mobile phones
Dildo accessory for Apple iPod for those who really wanted the full experience. (This product was featured in Gizmodo)
These two gargoyles looked like they were talking on mobile phones:
Police talking to fur protesters near Stephenplatz in Vienna. Normal people can't afford fur, and rich people don't really care about the cruel extraction process, thus the protest is pointless.
more of them in Salzburg:
"Arian" and "Aryan" are just one letter difference, however they sound the same on the phone. I am curious if Hotel Arian get any foreign visitors, or they just assume it is "Whites-Only".
The Japanese restaurant's sign literally says "Sushi, Tattoo, Fresh fish". ( 刺身 means "sashimi" in Japanese and "tattoo" in Chinese.)
At the Salzburg Fortress' Torture Museum, my personal favorite of all torture instruments is the Pear of Anguish.
It is inserted into a person's vaginal, anal, or oral cavity. As the key slowly turns, four blades would expand outward.
Mask of Humiliation
The Ol' Spiky, aka. Chastity Belt. I love the heart-shaped anal hole.
Scenes of Torture
The sculpture is titled "Cloth of Peace", but to me, it looked like Anubis from Stargate SG-1.
