小王子

People always want something visible to help retain their memories. That’s why the word souvenir comes from the French word meaning ‘to remember’. Of course, photos help a great deal, keyholders, small ornaments too; but as a linguist, I’m particularly interested in things related to languages. Therefore, collecting books in local languages as I travel has always been one of my favourite activities. Not long ago, I decided to buy a copy of the Little Prince in the local language whenever I travel to a new place. My collection is still very small, but this is only a start.

If you are interested in taking a look at a really huge collection of the Little Prince, follow this link.

    I have this habit, too. In addition to yours (except Farsi), I have Hungarian, Dutch, Czech, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish. I failed to find Tamil and Malay versions in Singapore. Hopefully, I will get Danish and Swedish later.

    hi
    thanks for the sharing, can I knwo what launguage do you know? and between Italian and spanish, which one would you recommend? as I have some Italian friends, it’s intersitng for me to elarn this language, but considering the reality, as learning a new language requires a lot fo effort and time, which is quitely costly investment if you cannot use this language again after studying this.
    While on the other hand, studyign spanish is more useful as i was told that it is much wider used in the world.
    It would be great if you can give me some advice =]

    By the way, yoiu blog has a good design. Do you do this by yourself? And I am a student now, can I knwoyour occupation?
    As I am think if I can have a job with traveling!!
    Cheers
    have a lovely day
