Travel can inspire, amaze and delight. It also has a fine way of discombobulating those who aren’t the least bit prepared.
Travel website Fly To Dubai recently released the following list of global customs that might knock a few of you off kilter if you aren’t prepared.
The list features various customs throughout the world that might be strange to those not familiar, such as that wacky tipping practice we have in the United States.
We dare those glued to their smartphones to try to remember not to pick up their device while riding the train in Japan. Seeing droves of people actually read the paper or converse with a neighbor would be absolutely remarkable.
That has nothing on Greece and like locations where throwing used toilet paper away rather than flushing might be the norm.
But whatever the case, it’s all just part of what might be a hilarious or rather unforgettable travel moment for you and your companion to share.
The world is a giant place, separated by language, culture and myriad customs. It might seem difficult, but getting past the barriers makes it all the more worthwhile.
