Denmark: Do not stand on or walk on our bike lanes. You’ll be yelled at like never before or possibly be run over by an angry cyclist.
Don’t tip in Japan.
Don’t do it.
If you try, whoever you attempted to tip is likely going to be a little upset. You are pretty much calling them unprofessional because you think they need that extra help or something.
It’s not country based, but if you come visit Alaska, for the love of all that is holy, DON’T WALK ON THE MUDFLATS OUTSIDE OF ANCHORAGE.
It is quicksand and you will get stuck, then the tide will come in and you will die. Seriously, it happens to one…

Other than going totally Middle-Eastern (harem pants, persian kimono, gold plated jewelry, lots of rings), I really like my makeup look for the day!
Also, high pony tails are BOMB.
I’m not actually wearing this in public, it’s for a play I have to act out!
Two summers ago, I spent 9 days with a group of rambunctious teenagers backpacking through Yellowstone National Park. This trip was remarkable. It truly sparked my urge for adventure, backpacking, hiking, and camping in nature.
Breakfasts consisted of packing lunch and foot pumped clean water.
Backpacking was our speciality. Over the course of 9 days, we trekked over 50 miles. My favorite, however was Trout Lake. It was breeding time for the Trout, so we could see all the fish laying their eggs up stream.
In addition, we tracked Horseshoe Hare pellets to assay the Lynx population. We also found a wolverine trap along the way. Later we scoured an area of two square miles to tag trees depending on if they were infected with beetles and/or disease. At our camp in the Centennial Valley, we had a small stream going through our plot of land, which we dunk our feet in to discover multiple fish and even a water snake! One morning, we woke up at 3:30 am to watch the wolves…We even had our own wolf expert! Later, we cut down invasive trees (so counter-intuitive, I know). And finally, we explored the hundreds of geysers at Geyser National Park.
It was an adventure like no other.
Particularly things you read in high school and college?
