Some of my favorite Korean signs
English is difficult. Everyone knows that. None more so than the people who have spent their whole lives speaking it. Sometimes this difficulty however rewards us with some of the greatest moments of being lost in translation. As a traveler, one of my most cherished treasures is the sings that Tawny and I encounter as we make our way around the globe. Here are a few of the best from Korea, a land renowned for its ingenious translations.
“Because really, at it’s core, isn’t that what it is?”
“Isn’t all sand organic?”
“The food isn’t great, but the room is free for the next 5 to 10.”
“Actually, this is pretty much perfect.”
“I found this gem on the exterior of a coffee shop. I don’t remember this one from the Peanuts column.”
“Once you start down that road, there’s no turning back.”
“C’mon, you know that you’ve always wanted to know what she looked like behind the logo.”
“The best part of this one is that it’s the name of a Love Motel, a motel specifically made for married couples to get away and enjoy some alone time…”
“Are you getting jresh with me?”
What’s your favorite signs you’ve seen while traveling?

Haha, I love it! Especially the kid that’s amazed by the organic sand! I enjoy taking these types of photos when I’m travelling, too.
So hilarious. I wonder how you can get that naughty graffiti on a restaurant, sooo weird.
i love it when they use swear words
why yes, thank you, I DID always wonder what she looked like from the other side. 😉
