American tourist baffled by behaviour at British tourist attractions – have you noticed it?
AMERICAN tourists holidaying in the UK are stunned at the behavior of Britons at popular tourist spots.
Although they speak the same language, our friends across the pond are sometimes amazed at our actions.
Laura and Nathan Curton are no strangers to witnessing surprised Americans take on British quirks.
The husband and wife couple have personally hosted American vacationers in their thatched 18th-century English cottage for the past three years.
As part of their English Cottage Vacation experience, the couple offer bespoke, all-inclusive, luxury vacations and have hosted numerous American tourists.
Along the way, they discovered what stunned Americans about the way Brits behaved at tourist attractions.
Nathan told Sun Online Travel, “All Americans find it surprising that everyone says good morning at tourist attractions.”
“That’s because they see people who are in a good mood.”
“We go down to the village and everyone says hello, our guests think it’s very nice.”
Laura and Nathan capped the positive vibes because they often take their guests to popular tourist attractions like Stonehenge, Bath and the Tank Museum.
The couple also emphasized the good atmosphere in their home village, where everyone greets and knows each other.
This intriguing culture shock may be due to the fact that many tourists visiting popular cities are used to interacting with Brits as they go about their day and are not often in the mood for small talk.
Laura and Nathan also revealed the eight things Americans don’t understand when they visit the UK, including phrases like “high-street” and “quid”.
An American tourist recently went viral when he praised London after a recent visit.
The US tourist was impressed by the public transport links, the free museums and the food options in the supermarket.
Meanwhile, another American tourist shared her first impressions of shopping in Primark.
