Traveling to a different country can be a superb as well as an intricate experience. New language, legal systems and customs for unplanned travelers is not easy to be familiar with. You can have a lovely foreign experience with proper planning and guidance.
Health and safety are the primary issues for the travelers. You’ve to be very cautious about your health because human body is so sensitive and can’t adjust with a new environment at once whenever you’re going to a trip with your family as well as on your own.
You are about to go on board on that long-awaited trip all over the world but if you get worried about what to expect, whether you’re going to Europe, Asia or wherever in the world, here are a few things to look forward to:
It is best to be polite with all sorts of people, especially when you don’t know their customs. I remember a time when a woman friend of mine shook an Arab’s hand. It was meant to be a gesture of courtesy but the Arab was appalled because in the Muslim culture, a woman must not shake a man’s hand. So always remember to know a little bit about the culture of the country you are traveling to, especially in terms of greeting practices since you will be meeting lots of people once you’re there.
Don’t forget that people don’t always give out you the same food that you’re used to. If you’re not familiar with the menu, try asking the waiting person what kind of meat or sauce is on something that you are planning to order. It is okay to ask because you might be ordering a dish you might not like and end up sick with. You need to be more cautious if you have allergies to particular foods such as crabs or peanuts. Whatever looks delicious is not necessarily good for you.
Of course, if you are traveling to a different continent, you need to expect that they have different languages and not all of them can speak perfect English. It is better to bring a dictionary with you all the time so you may be able to ask for directions or maybe ask some locals to take a photo of you and whomever you are with. It’s also better to know how to say “thank you”, “excuse me” and other commonly used words and phrases in their language.
Sometimes when you travel to different places around the world, you may experience what is termed as culture shock. Don’t be in a hurry to experience everything when you travel. You may have your own perception of how a certain country is and it may not always be true once you actually get there from time to time. What you really need to do is to be prepared to know what it is that you want to experience in Europe, whether it’s the visual arts in museums or the high-profile fashion circuit.
After knowing what you want to encounter in Europe, research on where exactly you want to go and make sure you’re ready. Always be friendly but don’t overdo it as some people can take this negatively. When you do encounter rudeness from certain foreigners, just shrug it off and don’t get into fights. You’d probably forget about them when you get home, so it should be no big deal.
Most importantly, just have fun and enjoy!
