The Traveler's Ten Commandments

Stomps With Foot sent me these and commented that she liked them. I do too, and hope you do as well.

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... for a carefree mind is the beginning of a fine holiday. 

3. Thou shalt not let other tourists get on thy nerves... for thou art paying good money to enjoy thyself. 

4. Thou shalt remember that to err is human and to forgive is divine. 

5. Thou must know at all times where thy passport lies… for a person without a passport is a person without a country. 

6. Thou shouldst remember that if thou were expected to remaineth in one place, thou would have been created with roots. 

7. Thou shalt not worry… for he that worrieth hath no pleasure... few things are ever fatal. 

8. When in Rome, thou shalt be prepared to do as the Romans do. 

9. Thou shalt not judge the entire people of a country by one person who was a poor host. 

10. Remember- thou art a guest in every land... and he that treateth his host with respect is treated as an honored guest in return.
