Signs. In the US you probably don't think much of them, except when you're driving or seeing if you can park in a certain place. When you are in a foreign country, signs can become much more valuable. Especially if you don't speak the language. Signs throughout the world usually offer an English translation. Which is a huge help. Though, to be on the safe side you may want to learn some of those foreign key words you might find on the country's signs like -- bathroom, hotel, train station, airport, etc. Thankfully even if you don't know the word you'll probably be able to figure out the meaning from the sign's symbol.
