Here are some tips:
  1. Be friendly : when approaching people whether at home or abroad , be friendly and open
  2. Know when to back down : dont be upset a refusal - just try someone else
  3. Learn the language : learn a few basic words in the country you're travelling to. Please and thank you go a long way
  4. Understand the culture : research into local customs is useful
  5. Fill the frame : get as close as possible to the subject
