#1 Don't act like some entitled jerk, AKA, a "Stereotypical American." Nothing is worse than some rude, entitled, American. I've seen it waaaay too many times. If you treat people like crap, expect to get treated that way!

#2 Don't clutch your Passport like a granny and her Pearls. Americans seem to guard their Passports more than their phones.

#3 Don't Panic! Crap Happens! Take a moment and breathe.

#4 Don't forget that YOU ARE A GUEST in that country. I have unfortunately witnessed some extremely disrespectful and despicable human behavior by visitors to another country, mostly from Americans. There is a reason why we as Americans are looked down upon as travelers.

#5 Relax and Enjoy Yourself! Experience everything and anything you can! Set your clock to the time zone of the country you will be flying to/visiting on the plane. Don't go to bed early or stay up late your first night. Try to establish a "normal" pattern to help combat Jet Lag. Drink lots of Fluids (Water). Be open to learning and experiencing new things. Step out of your comfort zone!
