Europe 2009

Odds and Ends

Nick likes to take photos of some of the stranger things we see on our travels. Here are some examples. (Read from left to right.)

An unfortunate name for a jeweller in Dubai.

Another Dubai shop that could have been better named.

Venice. So which way is it to Piazzale Roma?

Apparently not to the left.

Also in Venice: a shop display of politically correct and incorrect wine labels.

Chamonix. A bar with a regrettably accurate name.

Aosta. A good name for a shop that sells "home-made gelato" on sticks.

Aosta again. A good name for a men's shop.

Milano. Just in case you have difficulty in understanding one street name sign.

A shop in Barcelona. We never did find out what it actually sells.

And a few road signs that were a bit different

Mantua. The "Limited Traffic Zone" signs that so many tourists seem to have difficulty in seeing.

Vicenza. Another example of "Limited traffic Zone".

Vicenza. A fine array of prohibition signs at the entry to a car park near the railway station.

Hallstatt. A sign that seems to prohibit entry to Model-T Fords and motor cyclists wearing a scarf.

Aosta. Signs providing self-evident advice that large vehicles cannot go through the archway. Note also the roadside shrine: there is no nearby church.

 

 

And to round things out, a number of Nick's pictures of doors
