🔎 VIDEO EXCERPT 🔎
Some of the events described in this article occurred to me, while others occurred to friends; hopefully, however, none of them will occur to you.

1 — To Exchange Money at THIS place in Prague, Czech Republic
Never (and I mean never) change money on the street, particularly in tourist-heavy areas such as the Old Clock’s environs. You can be certain that you will be scammed if someone approaches you in front of an exchange office and offers you a better rate. Most of the time, you will be unable to obtain Czech money. You’ll wind up with some east-European currency that won’t help you much in this country!

3 — To take pictures with the Legionaries in Rome
They will initially be friendly and even smile for your photograph. After that, they will charge you a fee, and if you do not pay, things may quickly turn violent. If you call the cops, likely the police will take the side of the street artists in this case — after all, you asked to take a picture with them.

4 — Have a Deep Breath at Paris Metro Tunnels.
Paris metro STINKS. It is among the most disgusting, distasteful, filthy, and disturbing senses that a city outside of a war zone can offer you.

The scents of the Parisian subway will vary between rotten eggs, urine fumes, and human excrement. Some homeless people who spend their days in Metro stations use the passageways and platforms as restrooms.

If you need to use the Paris underground public transport, it may be a good occasion to check for how long you can hold your breath.

5 — Walk around La Rambla in Barcelona without paying attention to your surroundings (and valuable stuff).
The place itself has its charm. La Rambla is a 1.2-kilometer-long tree-lined pedestrian boulevard in the center of Barcelona. This street is close to some of Barcelona’s most notable attractions, such as the La Boqueria market and the Palau de la Virreina.
That one didn’t happen to me — I always thought it was kitsch to take pictures with a guy dressed up in a costume if you were already an adult.

But often kids (and some not-so-young fellows) are frequently tempted to pose for photos with these men dressed as Roman legionary soldiers who stand in Rome’s busiest tourist areas.
