www.fastenseatbelts.eu… I’m loving it !
At Pack N Board, we recently discovered this practical, yet entertaining website : http://www.fastenseatbelts.eu. Fasten Seat Bealts is a light hearted guide to avoid misunderstandings while travelling. An innovative way to learn languages and pick up cultural tips…
Comic-style designed, Fasten Seat Belts provides tips per Continent, Country or Theme and decrypts cultural behaviors. For instance in Italy, did you know that if you want to fit in with the locals, eat your pasta with only a fork, not a knife or a spoon !
In India and some Asian countries, wiggling the head can mean ‘yes’, ‘no’ or anything in between…In Japan, people avoid saying no…Disconcerting for the non-initiated ones.
So wherever you are heading to this summer or just for the fun of it, have a look at http://www.fastenseatbelts.eu. Feel free to let us know if you ever experienced any of the situations described or if you have funny stories to tell about cultural misunderstandings !
Cheers and meet you on www.packnboard.com !
