Of course, this is easier said than done. What travelers really should aim to do, however, is tweak their mindset a bit. Instead of going into a foreign culture being scared of how “weird” it will be, become open to new ideas and think about why these people might do the things they do. Maybe it will take learning a bit of the history of a place or engaging with locals, both of which will only broaden and enhance your experience. Educate yourself as much as you can with firsthand experience and realize that each culture is unique in its own way and for its own reasons.
And remember, your culture is just as foreign to them and theirs is to you.
