Say ‘thank you’ everywhere you are!

“Thank you” is one of those magical phrases that can open the door, the hearts of people. It costs nothing and can work wonders. Not only builds and strengthens our optimism, but also develops empathy, reduces the feeling of anger and frustration, reduces anxiety, facilitates establishing good relationships with people. Beautiful and powerful words as we can see, and should be used as often as possible.

Wouldn’t you like to be able to say ‘thanks’ everywhere you go? When you’re on a trip, you’re most probably served by local people, in hotels, bars, restaurants, shops. And of course they understand simple English ‘thank you’, but I think it’s always nice to try to speak in the language of your host. Nobody will ask you to have long complicated conversations in all the dozens of countries you’ll visit in your life, but saying thank you seems doable, right?

Here it comes then, thank you in different languages!
