Culture Shock

Who believes the only way to learn about other countries consists out of drinking and banging from the beach to the Disco and the Disco to the beach can forget about reading these pages....

Those who are controlled as a standard tourist by the local travel guide, still will get into contact, according his interests, from time to time with the mentality and culture of the visited country. But since their contacts with the local population is usually limited to already touristically developed sites, original and authentic folklore dancers and dealers, they usually are quite save, if they follow a few basic rules. 

And then there are 
still those, who want 
to explore other 
countries as 
individual travelers  
away from  the touristy 

paths, or those, who find the partner for the life abroad. For first it is important that before they start their travel they learn in detail about the mentality. the religion and the taboos of the visited countries. For the second they suddenly find that after the first honeymoons are passed, suddenly in the everyday life there are many small problems and inconsistencies, which seem to be completely incomprehensible, but  originate in the culture and way of life of the motherland of the partner.
For all those this homepage is intended.  On the basis of anecdotes and the following attempt to explain we would like to guide those, who want to experience the other culture without morning cat misery.
