Did you know that the distance between Norway and Paris is only one mile? As we roam life's roads, we use signs to keep us moving forward in our wanderings. This one posted today could really confuse your journey. Famous for over 50 years, this familiar signpost might cause the unknowing traveler a good double take, if caught by surprise. If not first hand, you might have seen it on a postcard advertising our state as, 'Welcome to Maine: the way life should be'. It's located in Lynchville, Maine(no, I don't know where this name derives from). I do know that this sign directs motorists to places all over the world like Norway, Mexico and China... Maine. There are other Maine destinations too like: Stockholm, Madrid, Egypt, Moscow, Athens, Lisbon, Lebanon and Vienna(pronounced vye ENNA). This signpost might go quite a distance proving that J.R.R. Tolkien quote, "Not all those who wander are lost", wrong!
