Things to know:
While Strathae is friendly and welcomes visitors there are things to know to respect the local unique culture that is very socially progressive.The first thing of not is to remember not to bringh meat into the country, you will not be able to eat meat during your duration of your visit though this is no issue as the vegetarian recipes of the country cater for all tastes with plenty of flavour variety.. Don't be too shocked if you see plenty of naked people in the streets, nudity especially in summer is commonplace and entirely legal with it even being accepted in many a restaurant and cafe as well as in all public parks. Generally ones clothing choices are seen as their own choice.
The second is to respect the environment you should leave any place as you found it , don't bring any non-native plants or seeds in(you will have them confiscated at customs) and crucially don't litter , if you lose litter from your pocket make an effort to retrieve it as littering can result in 1,000's of euros of fines and possibly a ban on visiting for minimum of 5 years as the environment is sacred.
The third major no no is avoid any homophobic comments ,comments opposing gay marriage or LGBTQIA rights. Strathaens do not appreciate these and it will most likely offend potentially landing you in hot water with the locals on this theme any comments against womens rights are also taboo such anti-abortion comments Strathaens believe in liberty for all sexualities and genders and don't appreciate negative comments about different sexualities or genders. Follow these general three rules though and you'll have a good time and find most Strathaens very hospitable and welcoming rolling out the red carpet for you.
