Mele Kalikimaka — that’s Hawaiian for Merry Christmas, or Happy Christmas, as they say in the U.K.
Here are a few more helpful phrases if you’re traveling this time of year:
“Merry Christmas” in Arabic: Milad Majid!
“Happy New Year” in Spanish: Feliz Año Nuevo!
“I just love your sequined reindeer sweater!” in Australian: That reindeer jumper’s bonzer, mate!
“I’ll trade you this lovely fruitcake for that bottle of bubbly.” in French: Je vous donnerai ce beau gâteau de fruits en échange de votre bouteille de champagne.
We’ll be traveling to countries that speak all these languages in 2010. But I can’t (yet) tell you our expedition schedule because it’s a surprise we’re releasing next month.
What I can tell you is this…
At least three of these destinations will be ideal places to take photographs, explore for travel articles, AND stock up on inexpensive goods you can pack in your suitcase and sell for a profit when you get back home (simple suitcase import/export).
