More naked tourists

Okay, why is it that tourists feel more inclined to strip off their clothes in public while on vacation?

BELGRADE, Serbia – Two Austrians and a German were fined for cycling naked along the banks of the River Danube in Serbia where a heat wave has sent temperatures soaring.

Temperatures in Serbia and other parts of the Balkans have hovered stubbornly for the past week at around 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit).

    There is the FKK in Germany and Austria (translates into Free Body Culture) where nude bicycling, hiking, etc–while not common—is not all that uncommon either. It is usually reserved for certain areas, though. But the Austrians and Germans appear always quite keen to peel their clothes off.
