You Are The Guest
- Visiting a foreign country always remember; you are their guest.

Be polite. Check beforehand if your next destination has certain guidelines or rules in their culture you should follow and respect. You're not home and even though the road might feels like home, you're actually visiting the home of somebody else.

Don't try to be a local because you're not, but try to understand their apprehension of your behavior. Being friendly and polite to the locals might earn you some good advice, a guided tour, a free meal or even a place to sleep. Do not underestimate the power of politeness and good manners. And always remember; you are the guest!
