Did you know that there is a town in the USA called Boring? As far as names go, this is pretty unfortunate. But the town has recently become associated with a similarly named village in the UK.
The town, located in Clackamas County, Oregon, is now linked with Dull in Perth and Kinross, Scotland.
The arrangement is similar to twinning, where residents from each of the locations take turns visiting eachother – swapping Boring attractions for Dull sightseeing and vice-versa.
However, they could not become official twin towns, due to Boring being considerably larger than Dull.
Do you live in or know of any places with unfortunate names? Have you ever visited Boring or Dull?
