Traveling to big tourist destinations in non-english countries means they will probably speak english anyways. Like Rome, Italy or Paris, France.

Yup, in any large European city you won't have problems getting around using just English. Depending on the contry, even outside of the cities most young people will speak fluent English.

And you'll find most people are quite happy to help foreigners if you've bothered to learn some basic phrases/words in their language.

Ah, that's pretty cool actually. Learning a few phrases shouldn't be too difficult I suppose.

Learn how to say " excuse me, where can I buy condoms?" in every language. Trust me.

Other dream I have is building my perfect house. Having a "game room", a huge library, movie room, a gigantic bedroom, that kind of stuff!
That reminds me, I always wanted to plant some stuff in my garden. Sadly, I cant until my rabbit roams it.

I've been to about 9 different countries and never had to use that phrase.

As for a house, definitely everybodies dream to make an awesome house. Mine would have a lazy river running though it.

And that's a lot of school Tiggu o_O is that for game design or something?


I know D: Doesn't help I started my exams a year later than I was supposed to because I was home ed. Actually I'm studying to be a Veterinary Nurse. Funnily enough I was looking into Game Design at one point but I'm not imaginitive enough for it :(

I just spent about ten minutes on Google Translate translating that phrase into every language. It sounds pretty funny in Swedish for some reason xD
