WHEN IN ROME DO AS THE ROMANS DO…

Traveling abroad is an exciting experience and it is said that this let us see the world through a different pair of glasses. Everytime we go to a new place we try to learn as much as we can about the place and adjusting to a new way of living and culture is a must for a good traveler. Hope this short video helps us find our way around Italy;)

Is it easy for you to adjust to another culture when traveling?

Is it easy for you to meet people when you travel?

From the video segment, what’s this that calls your attention?

What does the saying “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” mean?

    The most difficult cultural part to adjust when I travel abroad is the food; I can adapt myself to a different kind of peolpe, language or transportation in a few days but I miss peruvian food all the time.
    Generally when I travel, I prefer to do it in a small group of friends or a big group of relatives, so, meet new people is not a need; but when I have had to travel alone I have enjoyed talking with people with whom I have shared a tour.
    In relation to the video, “capuccino only for breakfast” surprised me. I prefer begining the day with a machiato and enjoy a capuccino in the afternoon.

    “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” is the same that “to the land you go, do what you see”. The only way to avoid doing silly things in a different place is to do the same things people in that place do.

    Hello!
    I tell you. I’m not of the people that like to travel. I prefer to take short walks around my town. I think travel to new places, are unique opportunities to get to know cultures, foods and customs. I hope to make a long trip at some point.
    What to do and what not to do in a place that we do not know? Follow the old saying “when you are in Rome, do what the Romans do”. This is asking, knowing and doing what the inhabitants themselves do. The video reinforces the saying. Very good to know that in Italy, soda or water is not drunk with ice! I will keep it in mind if I visit Italy.
    Definitely, don’t to forget that abroad, the person is a visitor and not an inhabitant, is best you adapts to their customs.

    Hello!,
    Everytime I take a trip I feel happy to know new places and meet new people. I like to learn different traditions by talking to locals.
    I enjoy each moment during my staying in a new city and I keep looking for new experiences in every travel.
    From the video, I was surprised when the guy mentioned about the capuccino. He said it is taken only at breakfast 🙁 . I love different kinds of coffees specially capucinos at anytime 🙂 .
    I always try to do the following:“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” which means that wherever you go, do what you see the rest is doing.
    I think that travelling abroad opens a new vision and makes yourself rich culturally.
    This topic makes me realize that I need to start travelling soon.

    I love traveling, I’ve been traveling for the last 3 years because it’s my job and because I like it a lot. For me it is easy to adapt to another culture, walking, eating and taking a bus … I do not like talking to other people much, I enjoy seeing the animals, the water and the forest. I work hard every day to travel, I save money to travel … it is an important learning and one of the best things in life.

    In the video for me, call my attention to number 4 “eat late”, because I’m very hungry at night, like at 7 pm at the most and I think that eating early in the night is good for your health.

    I traveled a lot during my profesional life, I have lived for years in different regions of my country. I adapt easily to other cultures, to the way of living, food, transport.
    I like to socialize easily with different people, never mind the customs they have. As I work as a Social Work with many people of different cultures, it is easy for me to interact with them.
    About the video the most I got impressed is the time they have diiner, before 7 pm. It would be hard for me to get used to this schedule. Of course we must obey other countries rules.
    About the saying I understand that should folow what is common there, I mean to respect, to obey the rules, the timetables they have. Not to do silly things that can annoy them. It is necessary to adapt to their way of living.

    Actually when you travel, it is nice to know a different culture and if you explain the customs it will be easy to respect them and adapt to them but it’s a problem when you do not know the language, do not know places or ways to transport yourself

    Is it easy for you to meet people when you travel?
    If you travel for tourism you find and meet people from other places with the same interest to know and have fun.

    From the video segment, what’s this that calls your attention?
    I think it is important to know the customs of the country you visit so as not to make mistakes or be disrespectful with the customs of the place. Although taking capuccino alone at breakfast is a custom that we do not have and we can take it at any time.

    What does the saying “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” mean?
    This saying means following the customs and traditions of the place visited.
