When you are traveling with kids it’s good to know a little more than the basics. You can tackle their questions head on and have the translation to find what you need to keep everyone happy and sane.
As part of my European trip planning process I asked my friend Sue in Sicily to send me Italian translations for the phrases she uses most often. I plan on committing them to memory, how about you?
Thank you. Grazie
