"Something's come between us" Vilnius Local Custom Tip by mrdarius

Vilnius Local Customs: 135 reviews and 161 photos

When walking with someone, try not to let anything pass in between the two of you...especially not a tree. I've heard many variations of this custom in other countries, so it's probably a good practice anywhere to try to stay next to the person you are walking with.

I learned about this in Lithuania while walking with my friend, and he was genuinely offended until I asked him what was wrong and then explained that I had never heard of this particular rule.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
