Don’t try this on holiday!

These travel tips were translated into 11 European languages using Dutch as a source language. As for “Rum begging” (?!)(cockney?), well it’s suppose to be a translation of… let me look it up… “Gaan we raar praten?” (We’re going to talk funny now, aren’t we?)(still not great, I know). This travel guide bites big time. As for being macho (or boring, really), this is probably as good as it gets by Dutch standards.

    It was actually a guide that you hold in your hand and spread out like a fan, a bit like a Pantone colour chart. It was given out as part of a sample pack of products last year. There’s more where this came from 🙂

    ‘rum’ is ‘kamer’ in Swedish, so perhaps 165. Room begging? (considering it’s a travel guide)
    Can you check the 165 in one of the other languages….

    Yeah, go ahead, 162.
