Backpacking around America is on many a persons bucket list. Packing up as much as you can into your bag and setting off around the continent to experience as much as it has to offer sounds like a dream.
Whilst it’s slightly nerve-wracking, it’s totally worth it and for those hoping to cross it off their bucket list, here are a few things that you’ll definitely experience.
For those of you who have already been, you’ll definitely know about all of these things.
In other parts of the world, tipping is only something you do if your service was particularly good. Tipping in America however is pretty much mandatory. Make sure to tip 12.5% to waiters, bartenders, taxi drivers etc.
