“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home.” - James Michener. Every traveller has their own definition of culture. Whether it has something to do with social customs and rituals or is admiring the local art, literature and architecture, the culture of a place can be what initially inspires you to travel.
