Signs are All There August 21, 2014 00:00
Some of us, we can all admit, do not have a great sense of direction. And this is especially true when we are in a completely new place in our own country or if we travel overseas for the first time. We tend to rely heavily on maps, the GPS on our smartphones or we try to find a local who understands our language and is willing to help us find our way around.
And most of the time it's because many of the signs we might use to lead us are in a language we may not understand. Being able to read signs in our native language can be very important - even if we learned the language of the home country, our default is where we're comfortable, and that is the language we've spoken all our lives.
What is handy are signs in both the home language and in our own native tongue, explaining the same destination or direction in the two languages so we can learn to translate and read in the home language while also understanding where to go.
And a fun souvenir for many people is a street sign from this foreign spot, that shows a sign in both a native and local language. Greece has many of these signs in English and in the native Greek, but the souvenir street signs are very difficult to find.
