Can a switch fragment a jumbo frame?

In all resources seen that tackle the term of "jumbo frame", I understand that it is applied in a LAN, because:

It's a Jumbo frame, and a frame is for Layer 2

Hey there! I am seeking out for your help…

In May of next Year, I will embark on a bicycle world trip. In my experience, just knowing a few words in a local language already opens people's hearts, especially if it is not expected. That's why I've set myself the goal of memorizing the absolute basics like: "thank you", "yes", "no", etc. in every language I encounter (category: "Conversation 101"). Furthermore, I am compiling additional words and useful phrases. I will put all of that together and print my own “travel journal” which will be my travel companion.

Here I could need your help! Can you think of any words/phrases/category which you think I have missed? (see list further below)

Since pictures often say more than 1000 words, I will also print pictures/pictograms in the travel journal as backup to convey the basic needs in the event that all efforts to communicate in the national language should fail. These are the ones I came up with so far, can you think of anything else?

  • Food
  • Drinks/beverages
  • Tired/Sleep
  • Campground à place to pitch a tent
  • Pharmacy/Hospital
  • Little money
  • Toilet
  • Electricity
  • Anatomy/Body (the idea is to point on a specific part and combine it with the local word for pain)

I did some research before on which words/phrases to include based on e.g., or vaious language learning books. That was the input for my current list:

Conversation 101 (these are ones I will learn by heart)

  • Hello
  • Bye
  • Please
  • Thank you

  • Maybe
  • You are welcome
