Road Signs in Colombia


For me, travelling to different countries is a wonderful source of inspiration and creativity. And everybody who knows me, knows how much I love going abroad to see different countries and cultures.

In May/June this year, I went to Colombia - for a three week round trip. Transportation via bus, plane and horse were normal. It was absolutely amazing!

Here, I would like to share some lovely holiday moments with you - with a special focus on fonts on Colombian road signs.
