Spotted in Athens, Greece near our Airbnb. Indeed, it does look like a great photo op for hipsters. Not being a hipster myself, I just took a pic of the graffiti and neglected to post it to Instagram.
Spotted this at Meatropoleos 3, a burger place, in Athens, Greece. I wondered if the intention was to make a philosophical statement or just state a fact, since there is indeed no letter W or E in "food". If it was meant to be philosophical, I'm not sure what they are trying to say. No... Continue Reading →
Spotted this one at EverBank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars (though I was there for the University of Florida vs University of Georgia college football game, not a Jags game). I thought it was an...interesting...choice for public restroom signage. Presumably non-Tarzan dudes can still use the facilities.
Spotted this one on my first (and so far only) visit to Athens, Greece in the arrivals hall at Athens International Airport (ATH) just outside of passport control. It was a really long flight and I was sure glad to finally get there!

They might be amusing only to me, so no guarantees… Photos taken in Montréal, Toronto, and Paris, France.
Only in the litigious US would you be likely to see a warning sign for historic ruins. Spotted this at Fort Zachary Taylor in Key West. Oh, and the surfaces were barely uneven...pffft.
I love these "distances to world cities" signs - this one is at Fort Zachary Taylor Beach in Key West. I'm rather surprised to find that I've been to many cities on the sign - still need to hit Tokyo, Habana (Havana), Santiago de Cuba, Dry Tortugas, and Montego Bay. Oh and Djibouti, though I...
