Tourists Your Ten Commandments
- 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 holiday.
- Thou shalt not let other tourists get on thy nerves, for thou art paying out good money to enjoy thyself.
- Remember to take only half the clothes thou thinks thou needs - and twice the money.
- Know at all times where thy passport is, for a person without a passport is a person without a country.
- Remember that if we had been expected to stay in one place, we would have been created with roots.
- Thou shalt not worry, for they that worrith hath no pleasute - few things are ever fatal.
- When in Rome, thou shalt be prepared to do somewhat as the Romans do.
- Thou shalt not judge the people of a country by the one person who hast given the trouble.
- Remember thou are a guest in other lands, and they that treateth their host with respect shall be honoured.
The author is unknown and I can't remember where I found these but I'm guessing Scotland. Where ever it was, I think they apply equally now as they did then!
