Travel Etiquette and Your Novel

"There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign." —Robert Louis Stevenson

Give Your Characters a Passport to the World

What does travel etiquette have to do with the novel your writing? If your novel or a scene takes place in a culture foreign to you, you can add authenticity to your character's actions by understanding customs and traditions different from yours. To avoid offending the sensibilities of your foreign readers, you can help your characters behave correctly. Or you can put your character into an embarrassing situation.
