Great Signs of America




We never reveled in the "America - fuck yeah!" attitude of some of our gun-wielding, flag waving, big truck driving brethren in the States. But something about being away and becoming an expat has us energetically pointing out everything that screams America to us when we are back in the ole' US of A.



On this trip, it was signs. After our friend Ian's thoughtful post on being a Fontophile, I've been paying more attention to the road posts, businesses, and signs that point the way. America, particularly Ian's area of Eastern Washington, is truly rich in signage.

Great seeing your visits back to the PacNWest area. Funny to read and hear about House Hunters show (I love it).. and just see pics and your general story.. I'm a permanent expat as well but just living in Canada now days. Of course like you, I would go back in an instant to Switzerland with the opportunity. However with hubs and a kid in tow, there are many more factors..

@BavarianSOjourn So glad you enjoyed the pics! I loved looking through our photos & picking out all the wild signs.

@Jen I just visited my cousins outside of Zurich and did a serious swoon. So beautiful! Thanks so much for checking out & enjoying the blog.

We're Back in Berlin Ja!
