Fun fact: the Polish word for a “tip” is “napiwek” which literally means “for-beer”. As in “have some money to buy yourself a beer later”.

um, sorry to disappoint you but in french it’s kind of the same thing, it’s called “pourboire” which literally means “for drinking”… europe, we’re all alcoholics here! :)

OMG. I never really thought about it, but in Hungarian it’s borravaló, which literally means “for wine.”

Same in German. It’s “Trinkgeld” — “drinking money.” And that ain’t water we’re talking about.

I find it hilarious, in light of this, that in Russian it’s chayevyie which means “[money] for tea”.

I never knew?? In Romanian we have ‘bacşiş’ from Turkish/originally Persian, which I know has the meaning of present/grant/gratuity but apparently in a secondary sense it also means ‘drink money’?

'sprepitné' in Slovak, from 'prepiť' = drink (away)

nationalgeographicprague : Hello! I am in Prague with National Geographic Student Expeditions for a photography workshop, and we are going to have a show of our work. I was wondering if you and any of your friends would like to come. It would help us out a lot, and we would absolutely love to see you there! The information for the event is on our Tumblr. Thank you! -Olivia

That sounds lovely! Unfortunately I won’t be able to come, but I wish I could. Have fun :)

Edit: The info on you tumblr - is it supposed to be July 10th instead of June 10th?
