Talk to any consistent world traveler and they’ll tell you there’s no thrill like stepping outside of your comfort zone. Meet new people, try new foods, mingle with different cultures. The unknown of a journey abroad will catapult even the homiest of xenophobes into Chris Columbus, a globetrotting journeyman with a taste for adventure.

UK travel site Travelbag has come up with 50 tips and hints to get you through a world tour. Each of the 50 tips contain cultural facts that might make or break a trip if otherwise unknown. For example, plan around siestas in Spain or under no circumstances should you mix vodka in Russia, the penalty is death. Kidding, not really, maybe, probably, because it’s Russia.
