It’s a good idea to learn the language of a country when you travel. Little things like bus signs, menus and movie marquees make more sense. But if you don’t have the 3 months it takes to learn a language, or even if you know the language and simply can’t get your point across, then this shirt from Iconspeak can help you out. With 39 universal symbols covering transportation, dining, and services you can easily get your point across for most basic needs. And if your shirt is ready for the wash they even have a tote bag.
