I spotted the sign above in the restroom at the
Connemara National Park visitor center in Letterfrack, Ireland. The hand-written sign was obviously placed by the center management. The multiple translations added to the sign in many different hands gives a linguistic record of the nationalities of people who have visited the park since.

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven
I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before.
My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers.
I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog.
Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

LOL.. That’s so cool. I didn’t see Thai in there so I might have to make a point to visit and add to the sign. 😉
That is a great sign. I love the spontaneous collection of contributions.
What a cool idea!!
That’s travellers helping each other out in practice.
I guess this is a case of ‘useful graffiti’ (if it can be called that). But a great find to notice that sign =)
that is so cool!
