This Week in European Sign Posts

Last month, my husband and I went to Prague, Budapest, and Vienna on a tour.  It was a wonderful 10 days and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.  I highly recommend going to Europe in the fall.  It’s not too cold but the lines are short.

While I was there, I noticed the street signs.  I love street signs.  I often wonder what people are thinking when they decide THAT should represent a pedestrian zone or a one way street.

I thought, for an extra special treat, I’d share some of my faves.
