Welcome to Episode 1 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast!
This episode has some great stories about both successes and failures when trying to get something to eat or drink in a country where English is not the first language (and one where it is!). Everybody who’s travelled has struggled with this situation many times, and Amanda chats with several travellers who’ve had both fun and frustrations.
In this episode, Amanda talks with Linda and Craig Martin about their tricky experience trying to order red wine in Slovakia; Stephen Henson shares a friend’s tale about trying to ask a simple question at a Taco Bell store in China, along with some of his own mishaps (even in other English-speaking countries!); and finally, Kristy Morton laments the difficulties she had ordering in a French patisserie as well as the lack of language learning that seems to take place in our home country of Australia.
