Collections | Water Closets Worldwide

By Perrin

Restrooms don’t feature in heated dinner conversation, generally. But after several months of navigating non-English speaking countries, we began to excite over any successful communications. Toilets – bless them – consistently transcend language barriers.

This Berlin sign says it all. 

1. To signal that you seek the porcelain throne, cross your legs and wince. 2. To find the loo, scan for a stick figures. It’s universal!

A number of venues when beyond the call of duty, and showed real lavatory flair. A sampling is below.

Siem Reap’s public powder rooms prohibit smoking, standing on the toilet, washing shoes and/or showering. (Sorry to ruin your plans.)

Pee and pray zone in the Fez train station.

Even the crapper emits mood lighting in this dim Barcelona salsa club.

Budapest suggests that you can meet singles anywhere! Who needs

Moorish flourish brightens les toilettes in Marrakech.

Alice’s trippiest mushroom yet: a ‘shroom bathroom in Edinburgh.

Laos ladies are curious aren’t they?

We know how you feel! Animated potty people at an Istanbul cafe.

About sistersbailey

We are Perrin and Sarah Bailey, collectively known as “The Sisters Bailey”. The moniker was born out of a crazy weekend at the 2009 New Orleans Jazz Fest and it was the first time we had ever been referred to as one unit. We grew up in Alexandria, VA together and then separated for college - Perrin to The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah to Northwestern University – and somehow landed together in New York after graduation. It was in the midst of the hustle of Manhattan that we became friends for the first time in years. Somehow we landed jobs in the same industry - Sarah worked in marketing at HBO and Perrin managed creative digital promotions for her media agency’s main client, Disney - just three blocks from one another. One day we decided to leave our jobs, sell our belongings and travel abroad with a backpack and a collective savings of $10K. The stories of our continuing adventures and those of other fearless travelers are here to inspire you.
