Unlike some bad 1980’s hair styles that I’m grateful haven’t circled around again, these “Ten Commandments for Travelers” from the early 1980’s are timeless. Follow these and you are bound to have a wonderful vacation and be the type of traveler who leaves a good impression.
Ten Commandments for Travelers
Thou shalt not expect to find all things precisely as they were at home, for though hast left home to find things different!
Thou shalt not take anything too seriously for a carefree mind is the cornerstone of a good vacation.
Thou shalt not let other travelers get on thy nerves, for thou art paying good money to enjoy thyself.
Thou shalt not worry, for he that worrieth hath little joy.
Thou shalt not judge all people of a country by one person with whom though hast had a problem.
Blessed are they who can wait and smile for they will enjoy themselves.
Thou shalt do only somewhat as the natives do.
Thou shalt carry the American Passport with thee at all times in a safe place. Nor shall ye pack it in thy suitcase, for it is said that a man without a Passport is a man without a country.
Thou canst be welcome in every land. Treat thy hosts with respect and thou shalt be an honored guest.
Bless thy travel agent for s/he worketh hard in thy behalf.
