Traveling abroad is always a nice way to meet an unknown culture and its completely different people. But, aside from that, going to a foreign country can be quite tricky if you haven’t studied beforehand on the things you can and can’t do. For example, you can’t go to Ontaria, Canada and start whistling, because you might get a fine of 250 Canadian-dollar fine. This is just a precaution so that they can protect themselves from bad noise. This is just a simple example of how you can screw things in foreign countries, but what’s coming is way more compelling.
