 Learn About the Laws and Customs 

Once you enter another country, you are subject to its laws and regulations. Before leaving American soil, you should always research the laws and customs of the country you are visiting. In order to find out about other countries, you can refer to your local library, travel agent, consulate or tourist bureaus of the countries you will visit. (Photo: Fuse/Getty Images)
