Let us see a Chinese uncle how to travel around the world with sichuanese standard mandarin.

56-year-old Wen Jun from Chongqing even can't speak Mandarin Chinese well who Chongqing dialect as mother tongue, sichuanese standard mandarin as second language. However, there is nothing stopping him from traveling 25 countries nearly half of which are in Europe. Wen Jun is running a company. There is such a lot of things on the world, so he wants to see. He began to talk about the impressive experience in Hungary.

“Started out of curiosity, I was curious not only about exoticism, but also if my Hungary Visa can be got in Chongqing.” Wen Jun said that when he had Visa interview in Consulate General of the Republic of Hungary in Chongqing, staff asked him what is his first language and second language , he said Chongqing dialect and sichuanese standard mandarin.

Wen Jun smiled and said that he never learned English when he was young and he didn't learn Chinese well, so his Mandarin Chinese is not good. “I explained to the interview officer that I can't speak English or Hungarian. In addition, I am getting older so that I can't live aboard. I just want to have a good trip. Soon, I got my Visa.”

Age and language seem to be his weakness but an useful magic key when aboard. As setting forth on a journey, he didn't feel troublesome about language. “My secret is to remember some simple words like toilet, restaurant and so on. Find out the first and last letters of main attractions and take the map. You will not lose your way with your body language.” Wen Jun said that he traveled many countries in Europe by this way, even he couldn't understand the station on subway so that he used this method to get the destination. “Booking the hotel room is easier because there are many websites in Chinese .” Wen Jun said he never had trouble in language in his trip.

After visiting Blue Danube in Budapest, capital of Hungary, he took rental car to set out to Pécs. Because at the junction of the three countries, there were few people. It was beautiful with rural scenery and few inhabitants round the place. There was no tall buildings and busy streets, it fit his pursuit of quiet and comfortable life. Some towns in Pécs are next to Croatia. Wen Jun said that he nearly drove to Croatia. “There is no signal warning you are in border in Hungary. Even no one will check you, so many tourists can't realize they have already driven to the border.”

“There are some little accidents in the trip, but they constitute my trip.” Wen Jun said that he never set duration of his trip. He will book return tickets depend on his mood. This kind of freedom is his pursuit. The further the heart is ,the farther the road is.
