Among the many things I've learnt at this point of my trip, is the way they greet here in Europe. It is really interesting. Unlike;

-Smile and an awkward wave

-Smile and/or a hand shake

Italy and Greece
-Kisses twice on the cheeks, on the right, then the left

(For Italian guys, they do a 45 degree handshake [the cool kind], then holding on to each other's hands, kisses on the right, then left)

France and Germany
-Kisses 3 times, the left, right then left

**So you got to remember who you're greeting and which side you should start so you don't end up with an awkward kiss on the lips your first time meeting this person. =) Just a tip!
