I love these colourful, hand-painted road signs, designed to help protect young children from speeding traffic.
We found them exploring Ebnat-Kappel, a hillside community in the canton of St Gallen, Switzerland, which has old family connections for my sweetheart.
The signs didn’t look at all out of place – members of this artistic community are happy to dress their windows with cascading flowers and their gardens with folk art.
Looking across the unspoiled valley, we tried to imagine what it would have been like to live here a few centuries ago, before modern transport links and Wi-Fi connections.
Do you have an urge to visit the homes of your ancestors so you can imagine their way of life? Or are you content to have roots where you were born, or where you’re making your home?
