Your bags are packed. Your plane tickets are paid for. Travelers checks are in the wallet. You even remembered your passport this time. But are you completely prepared for your trip abroad?
Traveling internationally is not easy. Whoever said that half the fun is getting there probably hasn’t left his parents’ basement since high school. There are so many things to take care of before leaving for vacation that most people don’t give any thought to what they need to thrive in a foreign cultural climate.
That is where Global Advisor TM by neohand comes in. Anyone who’s ever traveled abroad can attest to the fact that things aren’t always the same as home. Then again, if every place was just like home, what would be the point of traveling? The fact of the matter is that sometimes enormous cultural differences exist between one country and another.
Take France and Spain, for example. Physically, the two countries are separated only by a long chain of mountains known as the Pyrenees. Culturally, however, the two countries are light years apart. For starters, they speak two different languages, but you knew that. But, did you know that while what people in the United States would consider to be the "O.K." symbol means "zero" in France, while in Spain that same gesture is obscene?
Global Advisor TM provides international travelers crucial information and tips for surviving the culture shock that occurs when traveling. With information covering topics ranging from Forms of Address and Conversation Do’s and Don’ts to Gestures and Tipping, Global Advisor TM is the one program required for anyone traveling internationally.
