One of the most surprising cultural differences you can experience when traveling is how different day schedules and opening hours can be from home. We usually take them for granted, but then when we travel to another country we are shocked to see that things work differently away. And if you didn’t count on such differences, you might get stuck! Well, we don’t want you to get in trouble and we believe it’s always best to be informed. This is why we have many posts about how meals work, what’s open or closed on Sunday, where to eat if restaurants aren’t open yet, where to find a pharmacy when it’s late at night and even… why so many things are closed in the month of August, right in the middle of the peak season!
