Madam, Sir and dear visitors,
Gone is the time of the tourist information centers where you were greeted by a beautiful “receptionist”, who was standing and acting as a kind of green plant, and would give you a map of the city with a pretty smile!
Make room for the new Tourist Office in which receptionists and vacation advisors are now called:
« trustworthy local experts » and « enlightened advisers »
A short explanation of the text is needed:
an expert = someone who has acquired an enormous skill and know-how in a profession, a discipline with the help of a long experience
local = particular to a place, a region, a country
trustworthy = confidence, boldness, courage which comes from the knowledge of one’s own personal worth. The state of mind of a person who fully trusts someone or something else.
advisers= people, often specialized, to whom we turn to for an opinion on a question, about a precise topic. An insight on a specific way of acting that comes up when referring to another topic. Incitement: Listen to the guidance given from experience.
enlightenment: to make something clearer, more comprehensible, to explain it : A commentary that explains a the context of a written text.
