My pencil is yellow...

Things in the world are changing... A lot of folks are finding the same old same cruising areas not quite as welcoming as they once were, yet it's a really big world and 70.8% of it is water so you'd think there would be some alternatives available. Ya think?

A lot of cruisers or would be cruisers are not too inclined to get out of their comfort zone of their native tongue and this simple fact is a biggie. A smattering of Spanish, French or Portuguese opens all sorts of areas that are more than welcoming... Throw in a little Chinese and the world is your oyster!

Here is a painless way to pick up some French... French Word-A-Day is a great blog that gives you a word or phrase, what it means and how to pronounce it. Simple and no unpleasant bending involved!
