Tourism Guide FAIL

imageYou can’t help giggling, but don’t laugh too heartily, because this could, oh so easily (based on the often suspect standard of translations on the island of Tenerife), have been the complete guide to Puerto de la Cruz, Icod de los Vinos, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Santiago del Teide, for example.

Like this previous S.H.I.T. sign in Terrassa, Catalonia, Spain, this set of initials obviously doesn’t have the same connotations in Egypt.

Tourism Guide FAIL

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
