18 Things You Can’t Help But Do In A Foreign Country

Because some things just don’t happen at home.

1. Speak with an accent. Always. And when people don’t speak your language, use actions. Because they might understand you that way:

2. Try new trends:

3. Spend money on unnecessary things:

4. Walk around as if you are a local. Lost? Not me. Map? Too good for that shit:

5. Get overly excited when you see someone from home. You rarely see them at home and yet seeing them on foreign land is so god damn exciting:

6. Drink way too much. You’re on holiday after all:

7. Think you are less likely to get the allergic reactions you do at home. Seafood platter + foreign country = not totally fine:

8. Visit Starbucks at least four times a day solely for the free Wi-Fi:

9. Think of yourself as a changed person. Like you’re really finding yourself:

10. Visit an attraction. Become “really cultured”:

11. Take thousands of landscape pictures you will never look at again:

12. Post every picture on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And wait for people to like them:

13. Get a token tourist shot:

14. Constantly refer back to what time it is at home:

15. Indulge in local cuisine. I would never eat just carbs and ice cream for a week; but when in Rome, right!?

16. Fall in love with the nightlife. Probably because no one knows you and losing your dignity is easier to accept this way:

17. Let’s face it, you have no shame:

18. Feel empty when you realise you are over the mid-way mark of your holiday:

Every day is so sad from here.
