Do you wear your RED, WHITE & BLUE?
By New Wave Gurly
Or are you the type who prefer's to blend in with the locals? While traveling in Ireland with a group of girlfriends one of my friends showed up wearing an American flag on her hat. This was her first time traveling outside of America so we explained that it might be smart to keep a low profile and try to blend in. She got all patriotic on us and told us she was proud to be an American and was going to wear her American flag hat.
Well we finished our sundaes and everything was fine. We all ended up having a good laugh about it but I'm pretty sure my friend wont be wearing her red, white & blue while traveling overseas.
I consider myself fairly patriotic...after all I was born on the 4th of July. But after this and not being allowed to stay in a hostel in Greece after they found out we were Americans, I have since fibbed a few times saying I was a Canadian. Anyone else out there from the USA sporting a Canadian patch on your backpack?
