Weirdest Things Tourists Noticed About Foreign Countries

As a tourist you can sometimes have those moments when various unique corners of the world completely humble you. Your worldview from wherever you came from suddenly seems completely outdated, or just purely insane. Or maybe it's something a bit more innocent, like the jumbo serving sizes one can find in America vs. other places in the world. Traveling always has a way of reminding each of us that there are an infinite amount of ways to do things.

Funniest Things People Caught Themselves Mindlessly Doing

Most of us have caught ourselves in the middle of a completely nonsensical act where we basically just wake up, and realize we have no idea what we're doing.
