Travel Tip: How To Say “Please” And “Thank You” In Six Different Languages

Because a little courtesy can go a long way.

While traveling abroad I have found by making an effort to learn some key words and phrases, it can open the door to a smile.

It also shows kindness and courtesy. Take a few moments to say and correctly pronounce “Please” and “Thank You.”  There are Apps and YouTube Video’s that can be helpful resources to consider before your next trip.
