Tourists Favorite American Food Experiences

There's no denying the fact that America offers up some pretty wild dining experiences. Or just how America chooses to present its food and drink options. Apparently everything in America is served in monstrous portion sizes compared to what the rest of the world is doing. But hey, we've also got great distinguished cuisine options like heaps of spicy buffalo wings that'll melt your insides and have you cursing the next day's visit to the bathroom. 

Tourists describe their favorite experiences with American food.

This wild Twitter thread shines light on how Croatians absolutely don't mess around when it comes to their toothpaste. They're all about the bucket and spoon method.

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 Your worldview from wherever you came from suddenly seems completely outdated, or just purely insane.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.

Whether it's assuming that the only thing men want 24/7 is just to fornicate, or that men can't express their emotions in a heartfelt, sensitive way as well -- men go through their own battles. Maybe some of these will hit close to home.

Traditions That Are Weird To The Rest Of The World

What's normal to one country's locals might be looked on as nothing but pure madness to the rest of the world. Traditions are weird like that. Sometimes we'll grow up thinking that our family traditions were nothing outside the ordinary, only to go on to realize that they were truly bizarre. Like having the kids go out to play in a frozen tundra that is well below 0 degrees.

Tumblr Thread: People Who Ask vs People Who Guess

As it turns out, there are different ways people try to get the things they want, and they don't always line up perfectly.
