Road trip to Nowhere


I have a dream…

Nothing as profound as Martin Luther King.

I want to take a road trip through America in an old Volkswagen Camper Van.

I want to visit…

Of course, South Africa is not without our own share of odd towns.

We have Pofadder and Hotazel. Tietiesbaai, which means literally Boobies Bay. And then, Tweebuffelsmeteenskootmorsdoodgeskietfontein, which roughly means ‘Two buffalo shot dead in one shot spring’.

And I also want to visit all the World’s Biggest sites I can find. I’ve seen the World’s Biggest Frying Pan, but the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine calls out for me.

In fact, I once ended up offering it as a prize for some chocolate bar promotion or something. It did quite well as I remember…

  1. I have been to Sleepy Eye – cute little town – seen a copycat version of the Ball of Twine. I like the name of the one town – Two buffalo . . . It is interesting to do an internet search as to why some of these towns have these unique names and sometimes it is not what you were thinking at all!
