when I have a travel book...

there will be maps at the front

there will be a "rip out" page at the back which is lamenated and can be folded - it will have the

english = pro - nun - see - ashon = language spelling

what you need to memorize before every trip abroad on one side, and helpfull things on the other.

hello, goodbye, please, thank you, pardon/excuse me, do you speak english? I don't speak _____, sir, ma'am. do you have/where is the... bathroom, ATM, map, internet, exchange. Could I have... the check, water, this, that. How do I get to ___? how much for___ a room. what time does... the train, bus metro... come/leave? 1-12 Day, night. Monday - Sunday. RIght, left, straight, back, up, down. Can I borrow/have ____? ticket entrance exit. red/white wine, beer. one way, round trip. window isle.luggage. taxi, car, plane, walk.

foods.

that, hand signals, and listening with more than your ears can get you just about anything. remember to always use in combination by adding please and thank you and hello and goodbye. I think I will make these before every trip now... anyone want to buy one?

as far as museums - I LOVE it when it is one famous person's work charted through his (or her... unfortunately there aren't many "hers" here in france) life. today was chagall and matisse.

Matisse and the mona lisa have been the only things they haven't let us take pictures of here - another thing I love (I still snuck some at the matisse, though)
