Traveling can broaden our minds even more than encyclopedias and lectures about science. During trips, we can see the way other people live, eat, work, and rest. And it’s way more informative and impressive than reading tourist brochures. We decided to find out what things about other countries amazed people online.

“I lost my wallet with my credit cards and ID. I don’t know where I lost it, so I didn’t even think about looking for it. 3 months later, I got a package from the police department with a letter describing where the wallet was found. The package was delivered to the door of my apartment. I’m shocked.”

This bathroom in Seoul has multiple toilet paper rolls.

“In Norway, they have little shelters to keep your bike seat dry. Part of why Norway scores so high on the happiness scale?”

In China, they use special pants for potty-training.

When a boy is taken for a walk, he wears special pants with an open crotch. Girls wear sundresses. Children continue to wear these clothes, even after they have learned to use the bathroom.
