In just over nine months of travel, we have seen some interesting things. Sometimes signs or products catch us off guard or tickle our funny bone or completely confuse us. Here are a few things that we’ve found amusing and interesting along the way. (You can click on any picture to see a larger version.)
In Reykjavik, a snack mix called “Cindy Mix.”
A sign on an office in Amsterdam. They are not a church!
In Serbia, the churches have more rules than we’re used to.
In Italy, you can get a 3 pack of beer.
Also in Italy, the town of Gavirate holds a parking spot for pregnant women or new moms. I’m guessing there was an obstetrician or pediatrician’s office nearby.
Also in Italy, a Hello Kitty stovetop espresso maker.
In Prague, a restaurant called L.A. Finger Food.
And L.A. Finger Food has a dish called the “Pamela.”
Thank you, Dubliners, for “binning the poo.” Your streets were the cleanest, most dog-poo-free streets in all of the big cities we visited.
I’m not sure what type of anti-social behavior got this toilet in trouble. Sad day for me, ‘cuz I had to pee!
Oh, Ryan Air, this is the worst thing ever. Why did you have to put the safety information on the seat back so I had to look at it the entire flight? I didn’t really need to see this for several hours. I’m not usually a nervous flyer, but this just made me uncomfortable. 🙁
Outside of a pub in Edinburgh.
It’s good when traffic is calmed.
There were lots of dugs in pubs in Edinburgh!
Sign on the top window of a double decker bus in Edinburgh.
At a cafeteria in Wales…
Brighton Pier – Danger of Death, and only authorized personnel, please.
At a restroom along the seafront in Hove, England
Fireworks for sale inside a supermarket in Richmond, England. In anticipation of Guy Fawkes Day, on the 5th of November, when there are fireworks and bonfires.
Tiled WC sign in Portugal.
A sign left on our rental car windshield in Spain. No, I don’t want to buy your apartment on Danger Street.
Some odd chip flavors in Spain: Roast Chicken, Jamon (ham) and Prawn Cocktail.
At the WC at the honey museum in Colmenar, Spain. Queens to the left, drones to the right.
Not sure what honey has to do with toilet tissue.
At a restaurant in Protarus, Cyprus. My guess is they meant “ramp” as there were only stairs on this side of the restaurant, but a “ramp” around the corner.
Cornflakes and chocolate. Not a combo I’m used to seeing.
Lots of things prohibited at the sea front in Protaras, Cyprus. Can’t quite figure out what the one in the lower right means. No pizza delivery. No floral deliveries of long stemmed roses? 🙂
Finally, my favorite road sign that we’ve seen in multiple countries. The all important exclamation point, which can mean many things: road construction, bumps in road, pot holes, etc.
Close up of my favorite sign. I tend to overuse these when posting on Facebook, so I LIKE this sign. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed your sign and kind-of-odd product tour of Europe!
