One of my favorite parts of traveling abroad is the opportunity bits and pieces of a foreign language. Learning to say ‘thank you’ in 50 languages is certainly no easy task, but there’s a few you can pick up for your next trip abroad.

When Travis and I travel, we try to pick up a few words for the country we’re in. I know it always goes a long way. So with the month of November here, the month of thanksgiving, I wanted to share a fun post. Take a peak and learn to say ‘thank you’ in 50 languages!
