Next time you're in Krakow, I highly recommend this hotel: the breakfast buffet includes some nice sausage.

Speed welcome sign

 

Sorry, don't know how to display an image. but this sign marks the entrace of the tiny little town I grew up in...

 

In the words of Wiki:

'Speed was once notable for the contradictory roadsigns on the highway each side of the town reading "SPEED / PLEASE SLOW DOWN" but these have been replaced with maximum speed signs, however Welcome signs have been erected which carry the same text.'

 

The original version kept getting nicked.

I have a few good ones from Japan, must look for them on my hard drive. One of them was from a car sales place - TASTING SUBARU. I presume they meant that you could test Subaru. Or they want you to lick it.

The English is clear enough to lorry drivers - but the Welsh reads "I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated."
