Travel Signs and Products

I'm beside myself realizing I haven't posted the entire month of May. Rest assured, I missed blogging. However, on top of my demanding work schedule (including travel) I opted to take 2 courses and also study and take an exam for a new professional certification.

One of the courses involved tapping into your creativity, and that brings me back to this passion of writing and visual storytelling.

A huge hobby hobby, and something I invariably do on each trip to a new place, is photograph interesting signs. I also love taking photos of interesting product packaging from around the world.

Here are a few of my favorites signs along the way.
