It is good to get ready for some things even before your arrival! For example, what to do if your buddy doesn´t contact you, what kind of things not to forget to take with you etc. Or did you for example know that you usually cannot pay with your credit/debit card in a restaurant? Or that very few people here speak English, therefore it might be a problem to ask for a way? Read carefully to avoid troubles after you arrive ;)

Make sure you...
