Signs as Art


Leave it to the Louvre to come up with museum-worthy ways to say “No flash,” “Do not touch,” and “Speak softly.”

    • Hi! Sorry for the long overdue reply. Life has been crazy lately. 🙂 It’s weird because I don’t really feel like I’ve traveled so much — just 2 big trips to Europe, a couple of jaunts to neighboring Southeast Asian countries, and then just A LOT of armchair traveling 😀 — but I suppose it’s more than some people have. Let’s see…Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Macau. Southeast Asia is easier because I don’t need to get a visa beforehand and there are budget airlines from the Philippines that fly to those countries. Then, for Europe: the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France. Plus a couple of hours in Monaco and Belgium! That’s it, really. Like you, I want to go to Australia soon! And Scotland is always on my mind these days. 🙂

      • Too me that’s a lot of travel & so enviable! But I getcha there’s always somebody else who’s done double and then it doesn’t seem like so much. Thanks for making a list, so interesting. Australia & Scotland-oh my my my!

  • Too funny. When I was there, someone told me you can spend “five minutes, five hours, or five days” going through everything. So true! Loved being able to see the massive crowd around the Mona Lisa when there was a huge art piece on the opposite wall.

    • Crazy, isn’t it? Da Vinci was obviously a genius, but there were other paintings that — to my untutored eye, anyway — were more visually pleasing. I went on a tour by one of the Louvre’s staff, and she lamented the fact that people mostly went there to see an Italian painting and a Greek sculpture, while many French masterpieces tended to be ignored. 🙂
