Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to meet Karl?
It is indeed San Francisco.
A bit more about Karl:
There are two things that San Francisco is notorious for; steep rolling hills and fog…. Which the locals refer to as Karl.
The fog layer that settles over the Bay Area is arguably just as iconic as the Golden Gate Bridge.
The origins of the name are uncertain; some people believe the fog was named after the giant Karl from the film Big Fish in 2003, however, others have said that the fog has been called Karl for decades.
Nonetheless, the city’s most famous resident does have a name, and an Instagram account with over 250K followers!
An anonymous Twitter account christened the Bay Area fog “Karl” back in 2010, taking inspiration from the giant, friendly monster in the 2003 film Big Fish. The Twitter account @KarlTheFog has since amassed over 350,000
