1. Walk everywhere

It will counterbalance all of the pastries and wine you indulge in, and you should be able to fit in your seat on the flight home.

2. It’s ok if you don’t know the language

If someone is speaking to you and you don’t understand, imitate their facial expression and nod your head. You won’t offend or get yourself into any uncomfortable positions, and at some point they’ll realize you have no idea what they’re saying.

3. If someone looks threatening

Stand up tall, walk confidently, and smile at them. They’ll smile back and you’ll realize you’re generally a judgmental butt hole.

4. If you lose your luggage

Learn how to tell people the airline lost your luggage. You’ll get tons of sympathy, which you need, because you definitely won’t be getting it from your airline.

5. Look at the old people

Their dark leathery skin will remind you what you don’t want to end up with. Wear your sunscreen.

6. Don’t smoke cigarettes

No matter how local you think it makes you look.

7. Eat everything typical to the region

Don’t be a wimp. Don’t offend your host.

8. Go where the locals go

There is no bigger vacation buzz kill than listening to an elderly American couple order loudly and slowly.

9. Don’t get too attached to your itinerary

The best experiences come from entering the unknown. Be free and easy, you’ll be rewarded.

10. Have reverence:

‘Share your joy, your love, your ecstasy. Make life as beautiful as possible. Just out of thankfulness that existence has chosen you to be, that you are allowed to be, that you are given life. What else can you do?’ Osho
