I love traveling the world. Even more than visiting touristic sights, I enjoy learning about how people live in other places. What do they eat, what do they think, what do they do… and don’t.
Signs have always grabbed my attention, for they carry so much culture. If a sign is needed to prohibit something, it’s because people would be doing that otherwise. And each place has its own characteristics. For example, the “no guns” sign commonly found in El Salvador shops wouldn’t be found in Japan. The “no spitting” sign found in South East Asia is not easily found in Europe, and so on.
There’s so much more which I can learn from these signs, and I’ll be pointing these out in the curiosities section from time to time. If you’re as interested as I am, I’d love to know what are your thoughts as well, so I’m looking forward to reading your comments!
Let’s travel the world of signs together!
