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

  • Hospitality can be overwhelming, but it is not always selflessly extended. Hosts often expect something from it: entertainment, status, an address abroad, support or an invitation in return.

  • 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 'family' includes everyone from the extended family in many parts of the world.

  • 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.
