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.

FRENCH

Please: s’il vous plait (see-voo-Play)

Thank You: merci (mare-SEE)

ITALIAN

Please: per favore (pehr FAH-voh-reh)

Thank You: grazie (graht-ZEE-EH)

JAPANESE

Thank You: arigato (ah-REE-gah-toe)

Spanish

Please: por favor (poor faw-VOOR)

Thank You: gracias (GRAH-see-as)

Swahili

Please: tafadhali (tah-fa-DAHL-ee)

Thank You: asante (ah-SAHN-tay)

Portuguese

Thank You: Obrigado/a (Oh-bree-gah-dooh/dah) — use the male form if you are male and the female form if you are female.

3 Mistakes I Made While Traveling – That I Want You To Avoid

 Shocked Woman1. Not packing an extra bag

Have you ever been on a trip or vacation and enjoyed shopping

but wondered how is this going to fit in my already packed suitcase?

SOLUTION:

Bring along a medium to large tote that folds up and is expandable

2. Not realizing your photo ID was about to expire

Is your passport up to date?

I almost was denied boarding to my flight to New York. My drivers license was going to expire while I was on the trip. The gate agent gave me grace and allowed me to travel but with a stern warning that I may encounter problems on my return flight.

SOLUTION:

Check your Drivers license and or passport expiration dates before you travel

3. Time crunch – late for flight

Have you ever rushed to get to the airport,  your palms are sweating and your stress level is through the roof. The lines at TSA security are long and twisting,  around and around.  Will you make your flight?

This has been my situation on occasion.

SOLUTION:

In view of the recent TSA issues, arrive at the airport 2-3 hours early. Keep in mind traffic, weather, time of year and conditions at your airport as you prepare for your departure.

Happy Travels!

I want you to close you eyes. Imagine hearing the sound of the ocean. You are on the deck of a luxurious cruise ship and it’s just pulling away from the shore. On land at the pier,  people are lined up waving.

Stress is beginning to leave your body. Finally you can relax in anticipation of a fun vacation.

Open your eyes.

No worries about work or getting the children to basketball or cheer-leading because they are here. Along with your parents, cousins, aunts, uncle and close friends. Why even grandma came in her wheelchair.

Traveling with your family and friends can be great fun and adventurous too.

Happy joyful people group isolated white background.

The Love and Passion of Italy

Great Roman Empire - conceptual collage in retro style

Last year,  I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Italy for business.

It was a taste of Italy which was just not enough, I am ready to return and discover so much more.  I had the pleasure of interviewing Laura Massoni on Blab recently. Laura shared “Things You Should Know When Traveling to Italy.”  She shared some essential tips to prepare you for your next trip.

 

 

Highlights from my Italy experience:

This not a winery, guess what is grown here?

Have you ever wondered how Parmesan Cheese was made? I have a new found respect for this food and the many ways it is used to enhance a dish. Consider this tour on your trip to Italy.
