4. The Picky Eaters
While we all love our home cooked meals and favorite restaurants, it’s not fair to expect things will be the same when traveling. Don’t be the one to sit down and demand a cheeseburger at a night market in Bangkok. Embrace the food of the cultures you’re visiting and don’t be scared to try new things – you may surprise yourself with what you like.

5. The Arrogant Travelers
Whenever or wherever you’re traveling, don’t ever expect that the locals want you around. Also, please stop staring at them as if they’re exotic trophies to be taken home – put your cameras away from time to time. You are a visitor and should always remember to be respectful, courteous and humble. Let locals teach you about their culture in their own time and place – the experiences will be more meaningful.

6. The Boorish English Speakers
Speaking English louder and slower doesn’t make non-English speakers understand you any better. The whole world doesn’t speak your language, so be prepared to grab a guide book and learn some local phrases to help you navigate new places and try your best to fit in.
