I actually did run to Germany, from Luxembourg. That sounds pretty impressive until you learn that Vianden, Luxembourg, is only two miles from the German border. So one foggy morning, I trotted along some cobblestone streets and up a long hill and just like that I crossed over into Germany. The border was marked by a few humble road signs…
And the giantest snails I’ve ever seen!
Ignore my horrifying alien hand.
Which also turn out to be edible snails from the genus, Helix*
*NB: I didn’t eat any on my run.
