Every traveller hopes to encounter real hospitality. For free. But hospitality is not a one-way street.

  • Hospitality can be stunning. But it may not always be extended selflessly, thus be prepared to be faced with unspoken expectations and wishes as well. Hosts often anticipate something in return such as entertainment, status, an address abroad, support or an invitation.

  • Giving presents to the hosts is often uncommon. Inquire about these customs in the respective country. Small gifts from your home country, such as pictures, postcards or small presents for children can bring delight. Take into consideration that in many parts of the world, 'family' includes everyone from the extended family.

  • Don't act as a doctor if you are a layperson. Donating medication is only wise when having consulted with doctors or medical facilities before.
