One thing about traveling is that you’re about to go to a different place, meet new people, and experience new customs. So, if you plan to travel, don’t expect everything will be the same as your living place. That’s not what traveling means. The farther you go, the more you will see that our world is a diverse place. You may never know how big this world is if you just stay within your area. But, if you want to venture far, be sure that you know how to behave appropriately in the new place.
Still, it’s hard to tell that all tourists are aware of this. They go beyond their country’s border while expecting the destination country to provide the same services, foods, and drinks. Oddly enough, some even get pissed because they cannot find the same services and foods they usually have at home. What’s that? Do people really fly thousands of kilometers just to have a Starbuck and some McDonald’s burger?
Well, if you want some examples, look at American tourists. It’s embarrassing that some US tourists seem to have no respect or knowledge of the land they are going to. They’re loud. They want to buy things with dollars and get angry when they can’t. Still, maybe they don’t know that people there are also frustrated with them being clueless that they ARE foreigners here.
