A Student Ambassador–Ten Commandments of a Traveler

In Prague as Czechoslovakia Prepared for Elections

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!
