Rules of The Road

Many first time travelers to a foreign country may be unprepared for the cultural shock they will experience. The result: They are often perplexed by the unfamiliar atmosphere they find. The Rules of the Road may be worth heeding.

  • Thou shalt not expect to find things as thou hast them at home, for thou hast left home to find things different.
  • Thou shalt not take anything too seriously, for a carefree mind is the beginning of a fine vacation!
  • Thou shalt not let the other tourists get on thy nerves, for thou art paying good money to enjoy thyself.
  • Thou shalt remember to take only one-half the clothes you think you need, and twice the amount of money!
  • Thou shalt remember thy passport so thou knowest where it is at all times, for a man without a passport is a man without a country!
  • Thou shalt remember that if we were expected to stay in one place, we would have been created with roots!
  • Thou shalt not worry. He that worrieth hath no pleasure, few things are ever fatal!
  • Thou shalt not make thyself too obviously foreign. When in Rome, do somewhat as the Romans do!
  • Thou shalt not judge the people of a country by the one person with whom thou hast had trouble!
  • Thou shalt remember thou art a guest in every land, and he that treateth his host with respect is treated as an honored guest!
