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.

SPOTLIGHT on Italy

 

 Spotlight on Italy with Laura Massoni

When I hit my 40’s I realized that what I missed the most was sharing my love for Italy, my home country, with the people around me. This love awakened my senses and made me closer to what I remembered dear to me. I believe one source of my passion, is the fact that I had a very slow and secure childhood. I used to take trips to the market with my mom, spend endless Sundays at my grandpa’s county house picnicking with family and friends, and the long family meals spent over the holidays.

The warm feelings, traditions and memories are what remain from my years of growth and traveling. There is also the knowledge that building a truly wonderful life begins in the heart. The heart is the home to the memories and the experiences that sustain us, the well from which we will draw incredible reflections and new adventures. Our goal is to leave a lasting memory in our client’s hearts, which they will take with them everywhere they go. This is why, I only share with you, the authentic Italian experience!

1. What would you say is the benefit in traveling in a group?

You can go in places without ever feeling alone, without being lost, it is a greater sense of security. You can share memories, laughter, stories and have doors open that you couldn’t if you were alone.

2. Why travel to Italy?

Italy has everything you ever wanted from a “complete” life, I call it, EXPERIENCE. If you like history, culture, food, wine, laughter and love this is the place for you.

3. What are some unknown or little known highlights to consider?

Anything even the known cities of Rome, Florence and Venice can be unknown. Italy has so much to offer and so many emotions to share that you can have great experiences by using the right provider. The one that knows the ins and outs of the country. Each of the 20 regions in Italy are a new discovery, they are all different.

4. What is on your travel bucket list and why?

I would love to spend more time in regions like Molise, Abruzzo, Marche and Puglia because they have undiscovered places and are less touristy.

5. How has your travel experiences affected your life?

Having lived for so many years in the US, it taught me how to appreciate more the country I left behind. I love Italy and I love every corner of it and the warmth of the people.
