Many people consider planning a trip half of the fun. Browsing photographs of the places they'll visit, laying out the routes, picking the bars they will eat at and souvenirs they will buy... But have you ever thought of doing research on how to correctly pronounce the name of your destination?
Most of you probably think "why would I need to do that?" But the line you are looking for is actually "my whole life was a lie."
Abhisek Das of Thrillophilia, an Indian adventure and travel company, combined a helpful list of places with some of the most commonly mispronounced names. (Barcelona didn't even make the cut!)
Now, we're not suggesting you need to become that annoying person who exaggerates every foreign word that comes out of their mouth. But this could be a pretty darn good trick to have up your sleeve. Especially when traveling.
