Matt Long posted an article March 11, 2013 on Landlopers.com titled "20 Things Every Smart Traveler Should Know."
The article is full of useful tips such as "How to use a needle and
thread" and "How to say "No, thank you" wherever you are traveling. But
what caught our eye was item #12 - "Proper use of chopsticks."
12. Proper use of chopsticks –
Chopsticks aren’t just relegated to use in Japan, they’re a popular
utensil all over the world thanks to the massive popularity of both
sushi and Chinese restaurants. Plus you look cool when you eschew the
fork and knife in favor of two wooden sticks.
course Matt is referring to both how to use chopsticks and the proper
etiquette for using chopsticks where you'll be traveling. See our
instructions for how to use chopsticks and see our post on The Definitive Guide to Chopsticks Etiquette Around the World.
For travelers, Everythingchopsticks.com has a wide variety of everyday use chopsticks. You can even have some of them personalized. Happy travels!
