New Photo Contest: Best Funny Sign in your Host Country (All entries win free premium membership!)

September 16, 2015

One of the best parts of living abroad is running into a funny sign in your host country: maybe you see one on a day trip out into the countryside, while you are going out to a restaurant in the downtown area, having a walk around the main tourist area of your city, or even at the international school itself at which you are currently working.

Each country has their own unique signs that catch your attention as a little bit strange and a little bit funny; most likely a sign that you would never see up in your home country…though our home countries have many of their own funny signs!

So, what funny signs have you seen so far in your home country?  Submit your photo to us and enter our photo contest!
