While you’re planning to travel the world, the foremost problem which you face more often is the medium of communication. Words often intend to carry different meaning for different locations and the first language differs for everyone. Despite making efforts to make the other person understand what you want to say through gestures, you might fail at few points with technical jargon.
Keeping in mind your passion of traveling and this barrier of communication while exploring other countries, Iconspeak has launched a T-shirt for the travelers by which you can speak to anyone, even if you understand their language. It has 40 universal icons which are as perfect as your passion for travel.
The shirt was thought up by three Swiss “pen-pushers” over numerous drinks and after an adventure with a broken-down motorcycle, somewhere in Vietnam. Read a little bit of their story below:
“Many times we were confronted with a language barrier that was only to be overcome by drawing signs, symbols or icons on a piece of paper, map, or into the dirt,” explain George, Steven, and Florian. “We thought it would be great to have an essential set of icons with you, permanently, so that you could just point on whatever you need – and people would understand. Soon the notepad was pulled out again and we started listing more or less essential icons that would have been of great help during not just ours, but basically anyone’s trip.”
