    I've been traveling since I was a kid so I don't really notice. I just tend to accept others as they are. But a friend of mine came to visit me in England and was really surprised to find that all the stereotypes they'd thought were true were, in fact, a bunch of crap.

    When I first visited France, I confess I was expecting them to be quite anti-American. I was happily surprised to find they were not.

    Driving on the wrong side of the road.

    What's up with that?

    The whole rest of the world drives on the right side but the Brits have to be different and drive on the left.

    C'mon people, get with the program, will ya.

    Trinidadians do it as well... imagine my dismay when I picked up the rental at the airport and climbed in to find I was on the passenger side.

    That was the scariest drive of my life.

    Japanese also drive on the wrong side of the road.

    Must be an island thing.

    The deal is, what was the biggest surprise that met you when you visited overseas. everyone has expectations, and it is never what you think.

    I've seen ice trip up a lot of sailors in my travels around WESTPAC.

    They remember not to drink the water...



    .......................................................... but order drinks with ice. :eusa_wall:
