signs

Europe is a continent with many cultures speaking many languages living very close to one another. So sometimes communication isn't easy. I have found that public signs in Europe tend to be very graphic making them easy to read. So that no matter what culture you come from or what language you speak you'll be able to understand the signs...even though sometimes they turn out not so easy to read and quite confusing. And some are just funny.

Since we moved here we've been collecting photographs of signs. So I thought it would be fun to start a series of posts on my blog sharing our collection.

And to start this series I present a very easy to understand, not at all confusing, straight-to-the-point sign we spotted while we were out apartment hunting a few days ago:

hehe...extra funny because that sign looks like that rule only applies to two-legged dogs. Rather specific me thinks ;)

Haha -- not too subtle, eh?

What a fun idea for a blog series. I used to be a transportation engineer, so I am interested in this topic. The first one is pretty funny!

Awesome. I liked the elderly crossing sign in the UK, but yours is better.
