Things you notice when travelling around

Travelling around a place like Finland, where the language is so far removed from English, you get used to not understanding most of it 

It even took me a while to figure out the place is bi-lingual Finnish and Swedish

Then occasionally you see something that is recognisable but obviously doesn’t say what you might think of immediately

or else has been helpfully translated into English but is so bizarre that you wonder what could possibly have inspired it

And then there are those occasions where the translation is surely superfluous
