Welcome back to my blog. To me, traveling is so much more enjoyable when I’m able to communicate in the language of the locals, because I can connect with them, and I can communicate what I need, I can learn insider tips, and I realize that locals love it when I speak to them in their language. But, maybe you don’t have time to learn an entire language before you travel somewhere.

In today’s blog, I’m going to share with you the top 60 travel phrases or words, that you need to learn before you travel, so that you can feel ready for your trip, and more confident in your communication.
