...all possible variations from around the world please.

I'm sure that we're in for a belly full of laughs!

Last year we forgot to put the "spot" on an outdoor map in Stavanger, below the map was the following text:

TO LOCATE YOUR POSITION LOOK FOR THIS SPOT


A direct translation to Dutch would sound mangled, "U bevindt zich hier" is what's most commonly used, but that translates to "You are here"

On a side note, a few days ago I saw that Simpsons episode where Lisa accidentally takes the wrong bus and ends up at a secret military base. The map there has a spot saying: "You are here, we are not"
