Ten Commandments for Travelers
- Thou shalt not expect to find things as thou hast them at home, for thou hast left thy home, to find things different.
- Thou shalt not take anything too seriously, a carefree mind is the beginning of a good vacation.
- Thou shalt not let other tourists get on thy nerves, for thou art paying out good money to enjoy thyself.
- Thou shalt not forget that thou dost represent thy country at all times.
- Thou shalt not worry. He who worrieth hath no pleasure, and few things are ever fatal.
- Remember thy passport, so that thou knowest where it is at all times. "A man without a passport, is a man without a country."
- Blessed is the man who can say 'thank-you' in any language.
- When in Rome, do as the Romans do; and if in difficulty use thy American friendliness and common sense.
- Do not judge the people of a country by one person with whom thou hast had trouble.
- Remember, thou art a guest in every land. He who treateth his host with respect shall be treated as an honored guest.
