As I’ve said before, I always enjoy the signs we see when traveling. Sometimes because they’re funny, sometimes because they’re ridiculous, and sometimes because they’re true.Here are some of our favorites during our first two years outside the states…

From Budapest –
Not just any breakfast – THE breakfast
Ingen fart, uten bart (no speed without a mustache!)


You can’t live well, love well, or sleep well –
if you don’t eat well


Poop signs are always funny


From Paris – Beware of words


Ah, the international bathroom signage


Please don’t drive into the fjord!


So disconnected (I unfriend you!)

We typically don’t realize how disconnected we are from American culture. That is, until someone from the US comes to visit us.Case in point: this Esurance commercial (video below). We just saw it for the first time tonight. Hilarious.

Yeah, apparently we are always behind. In hearing news, seeing the latest and greatest from music or television, finding out about the newest technology (unless it’s Apple: Zack never misses any of that!), or being exposed to all the clever advertising.

But hey – at least we aren’t as disconnected as poor Beatrice!
