What I’ll miss about Europe
Greetings with two kisses
In most of Southern Europe, it’s customary to introduce yourself with a kiss on each cheek. It’s expected amongst women and when greeting the opposite sex no matter what age, although when men greet other men they usually revert to a handshake. It does make introducing yourself to a group of new people time consuming, and leads to slight discomfort when you go for the cheek and then discover they’re foreigners unfamiliar with the custom.
