The world is a wonderful place!  When you live abroad or travel around the globe and you have an open mind, how can you ever not be thrilled and charmed by all the spectacular sights and weird stuff you set your eyes on?  You tell me.

Now, if you live or have lived a globetrotting life as a traveler or expat, you will have domiciled in many houses, apartments, huts, shacks, tents, and maybe even castles.  But you probably have never lived in any of the places on this link:

Do museums bore you?

Now for some freaky stuff.  How about a toilet seat museum?   Just what the world was waiting for. Check out this link:

And no, the Hash Museum is not on this list.  It’s not weird enough.

I actually made one of the cube houses for a project at school, BEFORE they were build in the Netherlands, so I should get credit for these…

Fantastic! That Hash Museum sounded freaky enough to interest us when we were in the Netherlands on our way to Latvia (a great country by the way, but not a very colorful one under most circumstances), but there was no time. You kind of hate to tell someone you missed your plane because you were visiting the Hash Museum.

The photos made me want to pack a suitcase even though I’ve just unpacked one.

Nice way, Miss Footloose, to brighten our day.

Now that was marvelous amounts of fun. I agree, if you don’t let out a gasp of appreciation, particularly at that first picture of South Africa? There may be no hope for you. Perhaps daily chocolate therapy, glee-infusions and hefty doses of exhilaration might bring such an individual back from the dour-brink, but I doubt it.

Thank you for the oodles of fun 🙂
