Funny Things People Do When They Travel Abroad For The First Time

Traveling abroad is a dream that almost everyone sees. But what happens when the dream comes true? It’ likes being the king of the world. But sometimes, curiosity leads you to do some amusing things. The reaction may turn out to be hilarious and funny. Here is a collection of some funny things that we ought to do when we go abroad. So, guys, here begins the show.

1. The Airplane Woes

The fun starts when a first-time traveler takes his place in an airplane, from tying the seat belt to calling for the air hostess, trying every button near their seat, looking out of the window every once and then. It just looks like a comedy show. The unnecessary calls for air-hostess, the uninvited stories and talks for their fellow passengers, and a bunch of other amusing activities are bound to happen.

And the fellow passenger is like, “Oh god, someone tells this man to grow up. I am not interested in his life story at all.”

2. The Selfie-fever

Ahh! Traveling abroad! Let’s take a selfie. Who doesn’t love taking selfies, but people take this too seriously when they travel abroad. #myfirstTrip, Sitting in airplane #myFirstAirTrip, on landing in the foreign country another one comes #FinallyHere, this is how the tour progresses.

The tour begins with a selfie with family and ends with a selfie with family. Yes, this is by far a reality. Whether it is an airport, airplane, or tourist place, everything starts and ends with a selfie.

3. Currency Convertor Is Their Best Friend

Another amusing fact is using the calculator more than they use Google maps. Whenever they buy anything, it is mandatory to convert it into their local currency. Of course you need to keep track of how much money you spend.

However, by spending time to convert every single penny, you are losing the essence of your trip and the lovely city you are in.

4. The food comparison

My favorite! Food who doesn’t love it. But, the experience gets completely different when we are in a foreign country. The first thing everyone will do is to compare the price of food. Is it worth that much? Isn’t it costly? They want to create a hole in my pocket. These are the usual reaction from most of them. Also, most amateurs end up trying the most exotic foods and fail even to try the local food.

5. Buying Souvenirs In Dozens

I am just buying something for a memory? This is the usual excuse that people give when they are found buying souvenirs in dozens. But to add to it, they look for items which are the cheapest.

Don’t you think just a good souvenir is enough for a memory? You don’t need to buy in dozens.”

6. Unnecessary Fear

The fear factor comes from nowhere. They start fearing that they will be pickpocketed, they may lose their passport, they may be stuck here forever, and much more to add. Without any specific reason, they start acting like the most vulnerable victim world could have. The reason may be just a few people looking at them.

This is how the people traveling the first time actually react and do some hilarious things out there. Well, the excitement is understandable, but they end up making it worse for themselves. Guys, we can understand you are traveling to your dream country for the first time, but that doesn’t mean that everything is intended to happen for you only. Stay chilled and live the moment. Getting tensed will only ruin your own experience. It’s just a trip, be relaxed, and try to enjoy it as much as possible. That’s my only advice to you.

Don’t forget to go through here the tips for traveling internationally for the first time.
