Travelling the world can be amazing. It can open up your mind to whole new possibilities, and make you see the planet we call home in a completely different light. For expanding the mind and developing a greater understanding of foreign cultures, there really is nothing quite like packing up a bag and heading off on the adventure of a lifetime.
But, wait, wait one second. Travelling isn’t always a walk in the park. Yes, you’ll make a whole heap of new memories but unless you’re very fortunate indeed not all of these memories that you make will be ones you look back on fondly. What are we chatting about? We’re chatting about awkwardness.
If you’re thinking about globe-trotting, you should definitely be aware of all the potentially awkward situations that can occur while travelling. Because whether you’re the person that’s feeling awkward, because of something that’s happened to you, or it’s somebody else feeling awkward, because of something you’ve put them through, you should always be looking to minimise awkwardness while travelling.
If you do this, if you make the effort to avoid awkward situations like the ones listed below, we guarantee that everyone will have a much better time. Or, alternatively, you could do all of these things and make your trip a cringe-fest to remember.
