Toilet Seat Cleaner Than Laptop

Who would have thought that a public toilet seat is cleaner than a laptop keyboard? Yuck, yuck, yuck!

Outdoor Public Toilets in the US

If there is something you commonly see in Europe, but not in the US, it's free-standing outdoor public toilets. A lot of them in Europe are coin-operated. But still it's a good resource when needing to go. In the US, you would have to go to a department store or shopping center in order to find a public toilet (restroom).



That might not be the case for much longer. In San Francisco, they are experimenting with portable toilet and washrooms inside trailers. In Cambridge, they have opened the first freestanding outdoor public toilet and I'm sure it will be a success.

Ghost Poop

I had an interesting conversation with my 4 year old daughter in the bathroom yesterday. She was sitting on the toilet, trying to poop. I was in the adjoining bedroom. I heard her call so I went to see her.

Me: Did you poop?
She: Yes
Me: But I can't see any
She: Hmmm.....I can't see it either
Me: Maybe it was ghost poop?
She: Ghost poop? (laughing to herself)
Me: Yes, ghost poop....the ones you can't see
She: I don't go ghost poop. I only ghost fart!

She sure always makes me laugh.

Need Toilet Paper Bad

Someone really was desperate for paper. Doesn't look like they were successful though. 

I'm a little confused by this picture though. To me, it looks like a paper towel holder. So why are there rolls of toilet paper inside?

Other Country Road Toilet Signs

In the last post, I showed you a picture of the sign you can find along the roads in Sweden that indicate that there is a place to rest and use a toilet.

Other countries in Europe have similar signs, although not as cute and welcoming.

Denmark

Finland

Germany

Common Road Trip Sign in Sweden

If you are road tripping or camping in Sweden, you will most likely come across this sign. Although it is more rare to see them these days, they still exist. And when you need to go, you sure are happy to see this sign. As seen in the picture, it was used for out-houses, but I've seen them used for more modern resting areas as well.
