I came across this while sorting through some of the preparation materials from the 1990 People to People experience and thought it was interesting. It’s the ten commandments of a traveler. Prague Czechoslovakia.
1. Thou Shalt not expect to find things as thou hast them at home – for thou hast left your home to find things different.
2. Thou shalt not take anything too seriously – for a carefree mind is the beginning of a holiday.
3. Thou shalt not let the other tourists get on thy nerves – for you are paying out good money to have a good time.
4. Remember thy passport.
5. Blessed is the man who can say “thank you” in any language – and it shall be worth more to him than much advice.
6. Blessed is the man who can make change in any currency – he shall not be cheated.
7. Thou shalt not worry, he that worrieth has no pleasure, and few things are ever fatal.
8. Thou shalt not judge people of a country by one person with whom thou hast trouble.
9. Thou shalt when in Rome do somewhat as the Romans do – if in difficulty thou shalt use common sense and friendliness.
10. Remember, thou art a guest in every land and he that treats his host with respect is an honored guest.
Good words to travel by!
