How to eat around the world



There are lots of chopsticks rules. I bet some will surprise you!

You know I love to eat. And I also love to respect the cultures I’m visiting.

So, here are all the tips I’ve picked up during my travels about how to eat around the world. Written for Second Chance Travels, I hope International dining etiquette encourages you to eat near and far too.

Like to travel respectfully? Many more articles are on the Responsible Travel page.  I’ve got etiquette tips on how to show affection around the world, how to dress respectfully, and all sorts of other advice to make travel smoother for you and for the citizens of the countries you visit.

What have I missed? Any interesting etiquette rules you’ve come across in your travels?
