Contributor Ridiculous Street Signs #13: No Bunny Fare Allowed- Moscow, Russia

moscow russiaI love coming across funny signs both at home and while traveling around the world. Most of the time these signs aren’t meant to be funny, regardless, humor can be found in them.

From time to time, I post about funny signs which I call, Ridiculous Street Signs.

Contributor Ridiculous Street Signs #12: Potty Humor- Barbados

Funny Street Signs

One of the things that I’m always on the look out for while traveling is something that I like to call Ridiculous Street Signs.

I’m sure many of you have seen a sign in a foreign country and laughed, wondered what it meant or even just shook you head and thought what?!

Some of these signs might not be so ridiculous to locals but to a foreigner they can cause a laugh and become the subject of a photo or two. Maybe they’re just lost in translation… Continue reading Contributor Ridiculous Street Signs #12: Potty Humor- Barbados

Ridiculous Street Signs #20: In Oman, For Payphone Fault, Please Call…

OmanDuring our trip to the Mid- East Gulf States I was hoping to come across one or two ridiculous street signs.

While visiting the Sultanate of Oman, I came across what I found to be a strange message in an odd place.  Continue reading Ridiculous Street Signs #20: In Oman, For Payphone Fault, Please Call…
