Europe 2009: Things they don't tell you about travelling abroad.

An interjection before the post on Belgium.

Japan:

- If you look remotely Asian, you're Japanese.
- You can bring mochi back into Australia. It's fine dayo.

~

England:

- It's always five o'clock in the afternoon. Always.
- It's fine to walk into a relative's house several times a day without informing them first

~

Scotland:

- Only Indian tourists wear kilts
- You will not find a real Scot in Edinburgh
- You have to pay to take photos
- Haggis tastes like curry

~

Belgium

- If you look remotely European, you can speak French
- There are no English signposts
- Most of the population is formed by Middle Easterns and Africans

~

France

- See Belgium (except everything is higher quality)
- Escargot tastes like seafood
- Frog's legs are poultry (i.e. of the chicken family)
