TIP OF THE MONTH
If you drop a coin while in a foreign country, grab it with your hand or let it roll away. In some cultures (where there's a monarchy), putting your foot on an image of the king/queen is offensive.
**NEW FEATURE** - YOU TELL US
We like to pretend we know everything about work and travel, but the truth is, we reckon you know something we don't. So every month, we'll be asking you a question and the best responses will go into next month's newsletter.
Today's question is: What place is the most different from the UK, in terms of culture, weather, food, people, etc?
To answer, email click this email link. Ta!
Russian dolls are so full of themselves.
If you'd like updates more than once a month, follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We don't spam or clog your timeline full of nonsense, just share our and other people's useful and inspiring stuff. Nice!
Until next time,
The Career Break Site
