Why travel?

Traveling is an important part of everyone’s life. It brings incredible new experiences, opens up new views, gives opportunities to meet interesting people, expands knowledge and helps you learn and appreciate the diversity of cultures on our planet. Whether you are travelling with friends, alone, or with family, the beauty of travelling can completely change your life and way of thinking.

When visiting some new place, many people first go sightseeing. They want to learn new things about man-made wonders and important history events and how all that reflect on the society today.

However, the best way to experience a culture is to taste its cuisine. Although every country has its own traditional food and beverages, almost all cultures have coffee in common. Since it’s made to be enjoyable and tasty, the coffee drinking culture spread quickly all over the world.

Become Familiar with Coffee Etiquette

Drinking Coffee Around the World

Yet, there are a number of different coffee etiquette’s that exist around the world, and knowing these different coffee traditions when you travel can be helpful. Depending on where you are in the world, there are different ways of preparing, ordering and drinking this famous beverage. Some cultures drink a particular type of coffee in the mornings, another kind after meals and there are even rules on how one should hold a cup and other traditions.

French people for instance, drink cafe au lait in the morning from a wide mug which they hold with both hands. Cappuccino is the morning coffee for Italians, but after meals they usually drink espresso without milk. Then, there are Ethiopians who completely enjoy drinking coffee. Their ritual usually lasts for at least an hour.

Coffee Etiquette Around the World

Travel is wonderful and when visiting foreign countries, it is important to be aware of traditions and customs in the country for which you are visiting. In some cases, and one which recently made global headlines, was a group of young people shedding their clothes on sacred ground in the country they were visiting, ending in all being placed under arrest and jailed.   Not a good end to their holiday abroad!

Having a little knowledge and aware of traditions, customs and laws before visiting, shows respect and common courtesy for the people whose country you are a guest in.

Safe travels!
