Better leave them at home: 10 things you should never wear when traveling abroad
When packing your suitcase, it is advisable to keep in mind the customs, culture, and religious beliefs of the country you are traveling to. Clothes, accessories, and gadgets can help you have a comfortable and safe vacation, or they can play a bad joke.
