18 Things You Shouldn’t Do Abroad

Having traveled to many countries around the world, I’ve noticed some of the most common mistakes travelers make whilst abroad. Some are so used to tipping in cafes that they do it everywhere,although in Japan such act would be treated as an offence. Others sincerely present their Ukrainian friends with even flowers without counting them while the even number of flowers can be brought only to the cemetery.

That’s why I decided to collect 18 travel mistakes I noticed people doing abroad to warn others. Keep on reading and always remember to research your travel destination before leaving.

I'm pretty sure it's rude to ask about people finances in any country, especially as a visitor.

In Italy, it's fine to order a cappuccino in a restaurant as long as it's before noon. You can still order one after noon, but the server might look at you funny. They're not offended by it, they just think it's weird.

Ehm... nope. You can do it in a bar, caffetteria ecc. In a restaurant is weird and is one of the things that generally only tourists do.

We do and don't get offended by that at all. It's just an old story & habit to not clink with beer (only), related to the executions in 1849. Possibly spread by the wine traders that time to be more patriotic and stuff.
