COVID slowed us down for a couple of years, and now a few health issues challenge us. We're still traveling if not writing about it quite so much. Our goal in 2022 was get to all seven continents in one year... and we did it.
Going forward health issues may not allow us to travel. No one can take away those memories though. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.
Amusing confusing roadsigns.... Travelers often run into these. We know a lot of you are finding and sharing this page... so why not share your stories!
Some of the funny roadsigns we've found prompted us to set up this page for you to share your finds, but let's expand that....
...because really, you can find funny signs anywhere...
...whether you're traveling or not...
So this page to includes all kinds of funny signs. More fun for all of us....
But for it to be fun... you have to share!
You might find when you're dealing with foreign languages and customs, you'll also find signs that seem funny to you.
It may seem there are awkward use of words or symbols...
or the words taken out of context may seem funny... even suggestive.
International Road Signs - Do You Know What They Mean?
Rental Car Tips
Finding foreign toilets and their signs may prove amusing....
I remember a time when we took friends to Germany for the first time...
...at dinner, my friend came back and asked...
"Is Herren the ladies room or the men's room?"
Those little men and women figures do make that easier!
Travel with rental cars can let you have more adventures, but are you ready for those international road signs?
Driving that rental car in a foreign country can also expose you to road signs that you're not used to...
They may just look like confusing... or amusing roadsigns.
Sometimes with language differences or just the visual juxtaposition of the sign they are amusing roadsigns.
All roadsigns are serious.
They are there to give you directions, warn you of danger, advise you of conditions...
And tell you to watch for children or handicapped people or animals or other potential danger to yourself and others...
Not to seem insensitive...
...BUT ...sometimes they just strike you as just funny... as amusing confusing roadsigns. Here are some of ours again.
There was the caution sign: Sand!
After driving through the Namib desert for hours, a sign telling us there was sand seemed amusing.
Of course, if there had been a sand storm, that caution would have been important! We've driven through one in Tunisia... scary! Still, since we had great weather, we got a giggle out of this one.
Or... the direction sign that pointed in opposite directions...
We were on an island, and we could go around either way, but it still struck us as amusing.
Or... the one our friend sent us....
Just what are they trying to say with this one?
Or... the Australian road sign that was not an amusing confusing roadsign...
but just teased about Australian wildlife...
Those koalas and kangaroos were a danger driving at night,
but we wished we could see them in the daylight!
