Spain is a complex country! It’s also a pretty easy going one. But there are certain things that you just don’t want to get wrong. And here they are!

11. Don’t go OTT on please and thank you.
In Spanish we just don’t use the words as much. We are more likely to work ‘please’ and ’thank you’ into the tone of how we speak, or by tweaking the words (such as adding “ito” to the end of a word).

10. Don’t put bread on your plate.
In Spain, you always leave your bread beside your plate on the table. It sites beside your cutlery, because it kind of is a piece of cutlery.

9. Don’t eat with your hand under the table.
I grew up with no elbows on the table. But here in Spain we also have the rule that you should have your hands above the table at all times. Because you might have a knife??

8. Don’t offer guests a beer at 5pm
Because we eat lunch and dinner later, beer o’clock is usually about 8pm… not 5pm.

7. Don’t help with the dishes after parties.
It’s just not something that’s done here. At the end of a party or dinner party, you might help tidy up slightly, but you don’t help do the dishes.

6. Don’t be a ‘pesado’ in social situations.
Chill out! Don’t ask people what their job is straight away when you meet them in a social setting and don’t expect people to cut to the chase when telling a story - we take our time here!

5. Don’t misinterpret loud conversations.
When Yoly speaks with her mother on the phone, it can get heated. But they’re not arguing - it’s just that conversations here often sound more intense.

4. Don’t generalise about Spain.
This is a highly regional country. So don’t assume that every region of Spain has the same language, customs or food.

3. Don’t call Catalan a dialect of Spanish.
Catalan is its own language - and don’t get that wrong (especially when speaking to a Catalan)

2. Don’t used ‘usted’ willy nilly.
Here in Spain we’re pretty informal and so don’t use “usted” unless we’re speaking with older people or in very formal situations.

1. Don’t mention the civil war casually.
The Spanish civil war and the dictatorship is a really complex topic, and still an open wound in Spain. So wait until you know someone pretty well before diving into the topic.

In today's travel vlog, we discuss the 10 Things You Should Never Do in Spain and the Don'ts of Spain. I really enjoy making these lists about the things not to do in Spain or wherever. There is lots of talk about Spanish food in this vlog!

Just like any where else you might have some Spanish culture shock and learning a little about Spanish culture can go a long way. There are some social rules in Spain that every tourist and expat in Spain should be aware of so you know what not to do in Spain. Whether you are moving to Spain or just visiting Spain. These things you should never do in Spain will help!

Etiquette in Spain is similar to most parts of Europe but there are some differences. Heck there are differences within Spain so I tried to keep these 10 Things You Should Never Do In Spain and the Don'ts of Spain specific. What not to do in Barcelona would be a completely different video from what not to do in Madrid or what not to do in Valencia Spain. But the things in this video should apply and help you know how to be polite in Spain while visiting Spain.

This living in Spain vlog applies to and covers tourism Spain, life in Spain vs USA, life in Spain, living in Spain short term and long term, living in Spain vs USA, ,expat living in Spain, Spain revealed, Spain travel guide, Spain culture shocks and Spain rules.

MORE ABOUT THIS VIDEO ????
⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯
Recently Yoly and I made a video about things you MUST NOT do in Spain. And it was really popular, as well as a little controversial.

So we decided to follow it up with something more positive - the things you have MUST DO in Spain if you want to have a truly local and authentic experience.

11. Read a great book before you come!
Before I moved to Spain, reading really helped me get a grip on this country and in the end have a much more local experience.

▶ BUY 'GHOSTS OF SPAIN' HERE:
▶ BUY 'DON QUIXOTE' HERE:

10. People watch during the evening paseo!
People watching is a real cliche, but it can be an amazing way to discover a place. So how do you do it right in Spain?

9. Explore the neighbourhoods as well!
Don't just limit yourself to the historic centre - hit the barrios where the locals are and see that side of life!

▶ Check out this video of a tapas crawl in our Madrid neighbourhood:

8. Explore lesser-known parts of Spain!
Of course you want to visit Barcelona, Seville, Madrid etc. But why not hit the rural areas? Or lesser know regions?

▶ In this video Yoly and I head to the beautiful rural Jerte Valley


7. Eat a menú del día in an old man bar!
These bars are full of locals who are going about their busy day and stop to eat a big lunch. Such an amazing way to get a glimpse at everyday life in Spain.

6. Make time for a lengthy 'sobremesa'!
Once you've finished lunch, be sure to make time to chill out with a huge gin and tonic!

5. Drink local wine!
Don't just still to Rioja and Ribera del Duero - make sure you check out local wines too.

▶ In this video Yoly and I head to rural Granada and drink local wine:


▶ My video to help you understand Spain's famous Rioja wine:

▶ My video to help you understand Spain's other famous wine region - Ribera del Duero:

4. Eat paella like a local!
First you want to make sure you eat non-frozen paella. But then, you also want to eat it WHEN the locals eat it.

▶ My video about Spanish food myths (incl. paella info!):

3. See an AMAZING flamenco show!
I'm not really into dance... but flamenco is so much more than that. And I adore it!

▶ My wife Yoly is a passionate flamenco expert and leads incredible private flamenco experiences. Check them out here:

2. Eat Spanish delicacies that scare you!
I'm talking blood sausage, sweetbreads and pigs ears. Get into it - it's the local food!

1. Talk to a stranger in a bar (or somewhere else)!
In Spain we very easily and quickly strike up conversations with strangers. So even if you don't have much Spanish, go for it!

WHO ARE WE? ????

- Marina Ventura
- Socarratt is more of a quick lunch place, where they're constantly making big paellas and serve them for you

It was once said that Spain is different. Well, it's no different from any other country, but like visiting any new country, when you don't know how the basic things work, it can be a challenge to get around and have a rich experience. So I decided to make a video which answers so many of the basic questions people have when they visit Spain. Here are some of the questions I answer:
- When do the shops open in Spain
- When do the tapas bars open in Spain
- When do the restaurants open in Spain
- What are tapas? How does tapas work?
- Do you tip in Spain?
- Do Spaniards take a siesta?
- Do people speak English in Spain?
- Is there bullfighting in Spain? Should I see a bullfight in Spain?
- How should I travel around Spain?
- How do people greet in Spain?

10 Things To Never Do in Portugal ???????? Don'ts of Portugal ????????Part 1

Watch Part 2 here:

In today's travel vlog, I discuss the 10 Things to Never Do in Portugal & Don'ts of Portugal. This is part one of a two part video serious on things to never do in Portugal & Don't Do This in Lisbon Portugal!

Part 2 or 10 Things to Never Do and Don't Do This in Lisbon Portugal will be released a day after this video. This is not a Portugal travel guide but a Don'ts of Portugal and 10 things to never do in Portugal. Check out Part 2 here:

10 Things You Should Never Do In Portugal

1 - Never say gracias! It’s obrigado not gracias for saying thank you. Portuguese people speak Portuguese not Spanish! While Portuguese and Spanish are similar because they both have latin roots - they are different languages. Even thank you is better than gracias - most Portuguese speak English. Side note: Since Portuguese people do not speak Spanish…..they are not hispanic!!! Don’t call them hispanic!

2 - Never try to find dinner before 7pm. Most restaurants will be closed and even if they are open. The kitchen will probably be closed and you’ll just be able to get pastries and drinks. The Portuguese eat dinner from 7 to around 11pm. Side note: You want be able to find lunch earlier than 1pm either!

3 - Never forget your sunscreen. Portugal gets around 300 days of sun a year in most parts. Even when it’s cold, the sun is beating down on you. So make sure you put on some sunscreen before you go out.

4 - Never assume things brought to your table before the meal are free. Unlike many places, things brought to the table like bread, olives or butter cost extra if you eat them. Yes I said butter, they will charge you for each little packet of butter. This little trick is called couvert and it’s a way to get extra money out of you. So make sure you ask - most likely it’s not free.

5 - Never assume that a Portuguese person will be on time. In my world if someone says to meet them at 7pm, I show up at 6:45pm. That’s not the case here in Portugal. A Portuguese person telling you they will meet you at 7pm means sometime between 7pm and 8pm!

Reminder again not a Portugal travel guide but a Don'ts of Portugal and 10 things to never do in Portugal.

5 Things American Tourists Shouldn't Wear in Europe

Grab some of our gear

Please Note: Young People Wear Many of These Styles Throughout Europe. These tips are geared toward 35+ year old travelers. Thanks for watching!

Grab a Wolters World Shirt


Heading to Europe & Not Sure What to Pack? Here are a few things that my fellow US travelers may want to avoid packing if they are traveling to Europe.
1. Baseball Caps: Europeans in general do not wear baseball caps, especially backwards. You would be better served to wear a more traditional hat. You will see an occasional NY Yankee hat, but why not buy the fancy hat you always wanted instead?
2. Athletic Wear: Europeans tend to wear athletic wear to do sports, not to wear around town. There is a trend of more athleisurewear in Europe, but it is not to the extent that there is in US.
3. Khakis: the omnipresent US male pant choice is not something you will see too often in Europe. Go for colored pants or jeans. If you want khaki like pants wear Chinos instead of Dockers. The pants you will see are a thinner cut or skinnier fit than in the US.
4. Oversized US University Sweatshirts.
5. Sport Shoes or High Heals: US sport shoes and white socks are not quite as popular in Europe as they are in the US. You may be better off with Urban Street shoes like Vans instead. Also, women should be careful with high heels as with all the cobblestone it is easy to hurt your ankles.

12 Strange Things in South Korea That Surprise an Inexperienced Traveler

Before going to an unfamiliar country, you need to know about its culture. Especially if you are going to Asia where the society still follows certain traditions and has a hierarchical structure. One of these traditional countries is South Korea with its frightening characteristics and unusual taboos.

SUMMARY:
- Restaurant and café employees get paid really well, so tipping is seen as an incredibly rude gesture and a jab at their dignity.
- Holding the sticks vertically and sticking them vertically into rice are associated with death in South Korea because it resembles the incense sticks stuck in the sand at funerals.
- When visiting someone’s home in South Korea, it’s impolite to refuse refreshments and even more offensive if you don’t finish what’s been served.
- You might feel uneasy about the number 13, but a lot of countries in East Asia have the same attitude, only with the number 4.
- The age-old tradition of giving gifts to teachers for Teachers Day on May 15 was made illegal in South Korea back in September of 2016. The law prohibits teachers from receiving gifts from students or their parents.
- Many East Asian countries don’t like tattoos, and they’ve even managed to encode this into their laws. In South Korea, it’s illegal for tattoo artists to practice their work, and only licensed medical doctors are legally allowed to ink people.
- A lot of women there will stick to high necklines or wear layers under low-cut tops just to err on the side of caution. However, the attitude towards miniskirts is drastically different!
- It’s important to avoid looking directly into someone’s eyes if they’re older than you or they have a higher position (like your boss).
- If you’re out and about in the streets of Seoul (or anywhere in the country for that matter), never take photographs with strangers in the frame. It might land you a fine or a night spent at the police station.
- You might well be a rocket scientist, but in South Korea, you have to listen to your elders, especially if they’re rocket scientists, too. No, just kidding about that last part.
- You know it’s polite to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, but take extra precaution when it comes to blowing your nose in Korea.
- Now, this might come as a surprise given all the other things on this list, but talking about your #1 and #2 is totally normal in Korea! And I’m not just talking about between family, friends, or partners – even colleagues will go into great detail about their bodily functions!
