Oh, I simply HAD to share this one!...I, more often than not, check wordsmith.org for its word of the day..and this had a travel ring to it..

agio (AJ ee o) ~ the charge for exchanging currency. what a scrumptious sounding word..(all you speakers of Italian would see it as the Italian for ease, convenience)

A book of travel-associated words would be fun eh! I imagine it with simply delightful AND HUMOUROUS illustrations.

Methinks the world could do with a little more fun ~ says she who specialises in angst Wink

If I remember correctly the French for "hitch-hiking" or "thumbing" is "auto-stop"!!
