Long description:
A fun, funny, and fascinating compendium of trivia, traditions, and advice from around the worldâ covering all seven continents, from the North Pole to the South Pole, and even the moon!

Did you know that a goat discovered the true effects of coffee? Have you ever used a toilet made of pure gold? Passionate globetrotter and travel-guide author Klaus Viedebantt brings you this humorous and fascinating collection of traditions, customs, misconceptions, and advice from around the world--covering all seven continents, from the North Pole to the South Pole, and even the moon!

Filled with absurd records, bizarre events, and little-known facts, it provides all the amusing (yet useless!) knowledge you'll need to impress your friends and chitchat with strangers at home and abroad. You'll also find useful information about manners and etiquette to always be sure what not to do while visiting new places.

Always remember: you can mess up everywhere! With the trivia and stories in this book, nothing in this world will surprise you again.
