Hotels run by robots and more…
When you ask someone in Britain, “How are you?”, the last thing you want is an honest response. “Really depressed,” they might answer or, perhaps equally alarmingly, “Happier than ever!” The question has become a largely empty formality.
Not so in Scandinavian countries such as Denmark. There you would only ask, “How are you?” of a really close friend and you would have to be prepared for a genuine – and possibly lengthy – reply.
And just in case it ever comes up, never greet a Ukrainian over any kind of threshold, such as a doorway. It’s considered incredibly bad luck.
