It is estimated that there are around 6,500 spoken languages in the world today (woah!) and around 2000 of these have under a thousand speakers (so they’re pretty endangered).  In addition to this, there are thousands, if not tens of thousands of languages and dialects which are extinct and of which we have very little knowledge. From wandering around Paris with a camera in hand, to fossil hunting in Dorset, there is no lack of adventure out there.  So here’s a list of how to say adventure in 75 languages for every wanderluster out there!
