French Alps

Skiing in the French AlpsOur latest travel series post comes from Jiri Stejskal earlier this month. He was on holiday in the French Alps near the French/Swiss/Italian border.

The languages on this sign include (top to bottom) French, English, Italian, Spanish and German. The English translation mishap (delimilated) is an example of the risk of DIY and inaccurate translations.

Happy skiing!
