When traveling abroad and working with a language barrier, there are definitely some universal signs and symbols that help you communicate (i.e. the pleading look in our eye and slight shifty dance as we ask about the location of the loo). For everything else, we use our handy-dandy Point It Traveler’s Language Kit ($8). It’ll fit in your pocket and it’s got over 1200 different photos logically grouped together, so instead of skimming through your English to Italian dictionary for
‘condom’ 'coffee' and then fumbling through pronunciation, you can just point! Voila!
