What are the 5 Things you must NEVER do in Spain?

Cultures are different, that is for sure. There are things that we might do in our own country that would seem horrendous in another. In this entertaining video, we discover just what are the 5 things you must never do in Spain.

After having lived with a Spanish person for 16 years and here in Spain for coming up 5 years, I have decided to share my understanding of some of the key differences between the Spanish and British culture.

They may seem subtle, but let me assure you that if you overstep the boundaries of the Spanish social norms, you will pay a heavy price. So, watch on to find out just what it is that you mustn’t do here in Spain.  


Un saludo, Gordon y Cynthia:)
