Great mooseum! I’ll be back!
Blog Guy, I need some of your famous travel advice. I love visiting the childhood homes of great people, to see where they got their start.
Say no more, this is your lucky day. Two words for you: Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Um, I think I’m going to need a few more words than that.
Oh. They’ve just opened a museum dedicated to Arnold’s life, in the house where he was born, in Austria. He was there in person for the opening.
He’s not exactly Louisa May Alcott.
The walls of his boyhood home are covered with Schwarzenegger movie posters, which must have been what gave young Arnold the inspiration for his career.
There’s also lots of strudel. I gather Arnold’s earliest physical exercise was pointing at pastry. We have that in common.
I don’t know, Blog Guy. What else do they have there?
You’re just making up that last part, right?
It’s only a guess, but stranger things have happened.
Not in our lifetime, Blog Guy.
