For those of you who have yet to meet Dick and Marj Gibson -- great people from Colorado who moved recently to Fishers IN (North Indy suburb) -- they have collectively traveled to a LOT of nations! Dick and Marj have been to ALL 7 CONTINENTS. Between fun and missionary work they have a ton of information.
The Gibson's were our keynote speakers the May 25, 2010 ZamZuu Indy Weekly Ecommerce Training Event. This event is always open to anyone. Dick visited 50 nations, and Marj has visited 48 nations. They are Belize specialists, and avid "products of the product!"
Marj sent this note sharing some of the more whimsical humorous moments of their travels, along with a neat website (SignSpotting.com) that can be found in the Shared Links of SpeedReedNews.
Yes travel is their passion. And we are so glad to have them as a vital part of ZamZuu Team Indy. So Colorado ZamZuuer's, NO YOU CANNOT HAVE THEM BACK! LOL
See Marj's note, posted with her permission below.

Travel can be funny as well as fun. Roughly two-thirds of the world speaks
English as a first, second or third language but sometimes things can get lost
in translation. Consider these actual signs:
Hong Kong dress shop - "Ladies have fits upstairs."
Norwegian cocktail bar - "Ladies are requested not to have children in the
Rhodes tailor shop - "Order your summer suit because it is big rush we will
execute customers in strict rotation."
Bucharest Hotel Lobby - "The lift is being fixed for the next day. During
that time you will be unbearable."
Tokyo car rental firm - "When passenger of foot heave in sight, tootle the
horn. Trumpet him melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your passage,
then tootle him with vigour."
Doug Lansky has been traveling the world for years and collecting absurd and
amusing signs. He has a website called signspotting.com where you can view photos collected
as well as submit your own. He has compiled these into books and is in his third
edition. This is a great coffee table book to share.
