I found Iceland’s sense of humour enlightening.  The following photos depicts signs with interesting messages or directions and stunning wall art.

Graffitti is everywhere in Iceland.

This is not a sign but a license plate.  I just love their version of the plates.  Plain and Simple.

Commercial signage becomes creative

I wish I knew what this says but it has something to do with UNESCO 2012

You'd think this was a sign depicting the name of a town or city. It is not. Many of the home/farm steads have their own sign. I'm not sure if this is a name they gave their place or may be the name of the family.

When we first saw these signs on the side of the highway, we assumed they were directing to a rural town or village.  Later we discovered that these signs were actually for the homes or farms that were on the side of the highway.  I’m not sure if this is a name they gave their place or the name of the family who lives there.
