"Europe is made up of many..." Europe Local Custom Tip by KirstenL4W

Europe Local Customs: 188 reviews and 202 photos

Europe is made up of many countries, and therefore many different cultures. When you prepare for your trip, in addition to researching how to get there, where to stay and what to do, it will help to also research the culture of the countries you are visiting so that you do not make a major faux pas. There is a series of books called Culture Shock! for many countries that are very in depth and cover everything from basic greetings to living in the country, and will be very helpful if you are interested in learning about more than just the major tourist attractions.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
