Ten Commandments for Travelers

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