Fluent in English

I think its very poor the way English speakers don't bother with the language of the countries they visit. I usually try to learn a few words as it shows some respect but on this trip that means learning a smidgin of: Belgian, German, Polish, Lithuanian & Russian - all in the space of 3 - 4 days. I think I'll be doing a lot of smiling, nodding & looking a bit simple.

  1. I agree and smiling, nodding and the local "please" and "thank you" go a long way to making friends when you travel :-)
