Signs of the Times

hippie welcome sign

As we travelled around the world last year, we captured some funny pictures of signs and interesting graffiti:

bus food sign croatia

Some very specific food restrictons on a bus in Croatia

funny hostel no smoking sign

Don’t smoke in this Dunedin hostel.

yuppy sign graffiti prenzlauerberg

The locals aren’t pleased with the gentrification happening in Prenzlauerberg, Berlin. Not sure exactly what this sign says, though…anyone?

no tourismo puerto varas chile

Similarly, some people aren’t fond of the tourist influx in Puerto Varas, Chile.

no guns budapest

Hmmm…saw this one in Budapest, Hungary.


hush sign napier

This was stamped on the door of a brothel in Napier. Only a very specific 37%?

These are too funny :) I wonder if that bus in Croatia (first pic) was a German bus since the words are in German or if there are just that many German tourists in Croatia who put their gums everywhere and leave trails of French fries behind them :)

Sheesh, beheaded is a harsh sentence! I like the sign that says “hippies are welcome” – for some reason the whole “no hippies” things became really popular, which I think is obnoxious.

The beheaded thing was quite funny, I think, because the hostel was supposed to be haunted – could explain the harshness =)
