There’s a Hawaii animal shelter that lets tourists adopt dogs for a day. Visitors to the Kauai Humane Society can ‘check out’ dogs wearing vests that say “Adopt Me” to give them exercise and social interaction and gain the interests of passersby. About 4 times a month, the tourists themselves go home with a new dog. Source Source 2

‘Yuri!!! on ICE’ Location

Not sure if this has been already brought up here, but anyway.

Yuuri is from ‘Hasetsu’ (長谷津), a fictional place in Kyuushuu, but it seems it’s based on the actual city called “Karatsu” (唐津) in the prefecture Saga (Kyusshu).

In Iceland, a hand-drawn map can get your mail delivered to the right address. Tourists who had visited a farm and mini zoo wanted to send a thank you postcard but forgot the address, so they drew a map of the area instead. It not only worked, but is not an uncommon occurrence in place where only 300,000 people live in an area the size of Ohio. Source

Someone in Russia also tried the map-drawing idea. It worked, too!
