The hidden GEM in Europe!! The friendliest country in world~

54 Views
Speaking about travelling to European country, most people will think of places like London, Paris, Italy, Switzerland etc.Well undeniably these places are awesome but today let's talk about a country that is not so popular but worth visiting- IRELAND. Ireland is known to be the friendliest in country and it is one of the few European countries that speak English. Well, they do have their own language known as Irish but generally they do not speak the language. This article will be introducing you to funny facts about this amazing country. The "Irish-English"You must be wondering "what do you mean by Irish-English?" or "what is the difference with normal English?". Of course there is huge difference! Don't be surprise when you hear greeting like "What's the craic?". It means how are you doing or how is it going on. Anyone who has came across Irish-accent, you would have doubts like "Is this English?" "OMG what are they talking about?" "I am confused with the language.". Yes Irish has a very distinctive accent and they speak very fast that you can barely catch their sentences. If you are curious about it, watch "Derry Girls" on Netflix. Irish English is hard to understand but it is also challenging in a good way.    The Drinking CultureIf you have heard of Ireland, you know what they are famous for except being the friendliest country. Yes it is the drinking culture! Irish seems to love drinking very much. During the night, most of the shops with lights on are pubs and bars. Also, if you ever go to Ireland, try the Ireland's famous beer-Guinness.  The Crazy WeatherWhen I say crazy, I mean it. The crazy level is you get to experience three season in a few minutes, from snow to wind to sunny day. It rains 360 days in a year but mostly drizzles. Ireland is also known as the country with no summer because it is always cold and windy even in summer. Only people who have lived in Ireland get the meme.    The Separated Hot and Cold TapThis is the one thing even Irish could not understand, that is the structure of their basin. The basin is built with two separated taps, one for hot water and one for cold water just like British tap. If you only use the hot water tap, it is boiling hot that you could burn yourself. If you only use the cold water tap, the water is freezing cold that you could "burn" yourself too. Neither of them is at perfect temperature so it is a struggle to use the basin. The reason of using two separate taps is the cold water is safe to drink so they do not want to cross contaminate the hot water and cold water as the source of hot water is not for drinking.    Apart from the interesting facts about Ireland, its scenic view is breathtaking. Never expect tall buildings but cliffs and greenery. It is a great place to spend time with your family and loved ones, to escape from the urban city. Your eyes will be so occupied by the nature that you will no longer be staring at your phone.   Dingle Peninsula  Ha'penny Bridge DublinRing of KerryA great country to add on the bucket list- IRELAND!

10 Weird Laws Around The World That Will Shock You

29 Views
Every country is different with different people, cultures, food, politics, religion, language, and laws. It is crucial for us to find out the basic laws in the foreign country before we plan a trip. Thus, let us discover the unusual laws around the world today. 1. No Chewing Gum in SingaporeThe laws exist to prevent the people from littering the used gums that caused the Mass Rapid Transit system (MRT) from breaking down. Before the laws are enforced, there are many cases where the people stuck chewing gums on the door sensor of MRT which causes the door to malfunction and eventually lead to disruptions of the public transport. The Housing and Development Board has reported in spending $150,000 a year to clean up the gum litter. Thus, Singapore banned all gum substances in 1992.The only exceptions are nicotine and dental gums which are therapeutic for the smokers. Keep in mind not to bring any chewing gums before you visit Singapore!2. Weirdest Driving Law- No Dirty Car In RussiaWith a population of over a million people, there are going to be some dirty cars moving around in the country. This law exists to ensure that your car has a clean and visible number plate. A fine to 2000 rubles (30 EUR) can be issued to the dirty car owners.3. Feeding Pigeons in St. Mark’s Square in Venice Is IllegalThe law has been implemented since 2008 in an effort to protect the UNESCO status city. The pigeons have been blamed for destroying the historical monument and buildings as their feces landed on the facades and monuments. Besides, they are the potential to carry diseases and spread them to humans. The fine for feeding pigeons in the area can be up to $700. 4. “Fat Tax” On Junk Food In Kerala, IndiaKerala is the first state in India to have a 14.5% tax on burgers, pizza, donuts, and other fast food or fatty dishes that are served in branded restaurants. The fat tax is used to raise awareness of the public for their food choices, creating a healthier population, and reduce the rate of obesity in the state.5. Patriotic Canadian Radio Stations In Canada, all radio stations must ensure at least 35% of the music they aired every week, between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday, is a Canadian singer. The government believes that this act is able to preserve their culture and identity as well as giving more opportunity for local talents to shine.6. Do Not Hike Naked in SwitzerlandAfter a naked German walked past a lovely family which are having a picnic in the Alps in 2009, the Swiss has banned the act of hiking in nude. There was a time where the Swiss and Germans made naked hiking a trend more than 10 years ago. Thus the Swiss parliament has passed the law to make sure their people are hiking in proper attire.7. No High Heels in AcropolisGreece has banned high heels at Acropolis since 2009 to protect Parthenon. High heels which have a sharp end may cause damage to 2500 years old ancient monuments and ruined their preservation efforts. So, leave your high heels at home and be join the effort in protecting the historical sites with respect.8. Try to Avoid Winnie the Pooh T-Shirt in PolandWinnie the Pooh is banned from a Polish playground and schools due to its “dubious sexuality, inappropriately dressed and half-naked”. One of the councilors even describes the bear as “wholly inappropriate for children”. Therefore, it is best to avoid having a large Winnie the Pooh appearing in front of your T-shirt while you visit the country.9. No Selfies or Tattoos With Buddha in Sri LankaWhen we take a selfie with Buddha, we will turn our back on the Buddha, make sure that we look great with the Buddha before pressing the capture button? Oh no, turning our back to Buddha is a sign of disrespect of God in Sri Lanka. In addition, sometimes there are bans for taking photos for certain Buddhas. There are cases where the travelers have been suspended in jails in Sri Lanka because their photos showing them posing with Buddha statues and pretending to kiss one of them. Be a good tourist, be respectful, polite, and comply with their basic rules when you visit a foreign country.Cover Photo: switzerland.photo's || srilanka_tourism
