Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Signs


Ailsa’s travel theme this week, is ‘Signs’. I’ve seen a few funny and strange signs on my travels:

This first one is not at all funny, and was a stark reminder of the terrible Tsunami which struck this beautiful seaside resort, in 2004.

This is on the wall of my sister-in-law’s patio in England. Her two younger sons are Irish born and bred. :)

This was a chocolate drink offered in a restaurant in England, and if you know anything about our South African president, you will understand why I found the description so apt.

Here is the name of a shop in Bali, selling replica watches, such as Rolex, Breitling, Cartier etc.. I think it should rather read “Bogus watches.”¬† There was also a sign in the window advertising that they sell, “Genuine fake sunglasses.” :lol:

I couldn’t resist snapping this sign above a Phuket massage parlour.

The name of this supermarket in the USA, really amused me. They sold excellent takeaway Sushi though.

I was really thrilled when I saw this iconic sign for the first time in real life.

On a visit to Coney Island, I wasn’t even remotely tempted to venture inside this establishment. Would you ever? 8O

This tombstone in Tombstone, Arizona, declares the fate of poor Lester Moore in verse. They didn’t call it ‘The Wild West’ for no reason. :)

Closer to home, I saw this outside a beach apartment block when we went for a walk today.

At our local hardware store, I had to smile at these signs for sale.

Well that’s all I can find at short notice. The funniest sign I’ve ever seen, and I don’t have a photo, was emblazoned above a restaurant in China. “Mr Beef – Seafood Restaurant. ” :D

  3. Great signs!! Wow, that headless woman only charges 50 cents?? What a bargain! And the “genuine fake watches!” That one cracks me up every time I see it, which surprisingly is quite often! Have fun with your son and granddaughter!
