We know that everyone's traveling right about now, so what better moment to share this list of body language tips in different countries?
For instance, in Asia one should never touch somebody with a part of their foot, considered the "lowest" part of the body, or touch somebody's head, considered the "highest" part.
In Britain, one shouldn't stick up their index and middle finger with palms facing inwards, the equivalent of the American middle finger. Think the peace sign, instead.
And what about eating? Dining etiquette across the globe varies widely; for instance, you never want to tip in a British pub (or in Japan).
