Jumping for joy 'coz the hotel staff brought out chips!

Drowning their 'foreign food, fish and chips' in tomato sauce
When you can identify their clothes and what shop they got them from, most often Matalan or Primark!
Anyone else have any steriotypes? This could be fun!
Oh dear. Could be fun.. or it could be controversial.
They speak loud and laugh out loud = SPANISH
We are not always laughing, but I must admit that everytime I have heard someone speaking rather loudly, whenever I was living abroad, that was at 90% of the cases someone from Spain!!!!
Plaster Canadian flags all over their luggage = Canadian. Or American.
LOL. I may plaster a few Canadian flags on my pack when I go overseas. Unlike Americans, Canadians don't have any enemies, except for the mighty Grizzly bear.
I used to play a little game of guessing where people are from.
English people- very pale skin. Scottish and Irish people, even paler, like snow.
You can tell how many days they've been there by the gradual pinkening, up to bright red.
Don't do it Travis. Nothing against Canada, but that is one thing I refuse to do. I just don't see the merit in it and would find it awfully difficult to continue to lie about it once people started asking questions about my home. Don't be ashamed of where you are from, just do your best to give us a better name abroad. Judging from your posts, you seem to be one of the "good ones", I wouldn't worry about having to lie.
Very cliched l know but Japanese really do snap pictures of everything and have to be in the photo too!!
Blimey - that bright white to radiant red gradient is so true for us brits - see it in action at Airlie Beach.
I agree John. I was mostly joking about putting up the flag.
I just worry about catching flak from people that will immediately judge me when I tell them i'm from America. But I like to think that I will be an ambassador, and will teach others that not all Americans are ignorant and culturally unaware.
And if that doesn't work, then we'll just invade there country!
