How To Be a Good Tourist, Part 1
Traveling is one of the best ways people can really test their boundaries and challenge themselves. It can be easy to lose yourself in the sights and sounds of a new place, and sometimes we can get a little too carried away and forget ourselves. Just because you’re in a new country doesn’t mean all forms of human respect go out the window. Being a good tourist abroad is just as important as being a good citizen in your home country.
So how do you prepare for traveling to a new place?
- After you buy your cheap flight to Europe from our Brooklyn travel agency, your next purchase should be reading material on the country you’re visiting. How do people dress? What does the average man or woman do for a good time? You don’t have to mold yourself to fit in, but it’s advisable not to conduct yourself in a manner that locals may find completely heinous.
- Learn a few phrases from the native language: “hello,” “thank you,” “yes,” and “no.” These simple phrases can show the locals that you cared enough to try and learn the language, and that little modicum of respect can go a long way to helping you receive a more enriching experience.
