Greetings everyone! Time flies - I've joined Steemit for over a year, and I am grateful for many communities and friends that have been constantly supporting and inspiring me.

To celebrate this anniversary and to give back to the Steem community, I am hosting a cross-culture challenge. (Thanks @Partiko for sponsoring part of the rewards!) Let's join some fun in this bear market! :)

So why a cross-culture challenge?

Like I said in my intro post:

I'm most enthusiastic about traveling, photography, cooking, art... I believe any traveler understands this wanderlust - you just can't have enough. By traveling far and wide, you discover new ways of living and understand other cultures to appreciate them, you constantly get inspired and would ultimately better yourself. Especially when you travel solo, you set yourself free and interact more with locals. You start to judge less and accept more.
I do, like many of you foodies there, take great pleasure in eating and cooking. And I try to learn cooking from different cultures during my travels, to spice up my own experiments on food fusion...

There is a great variety of cultures on this planet, and each culture has its own charm. Lived across 5 continets and traveled to over 60 countries, I have been mesmerised by all the different cultures. Steemians here come from all over the world with rich cultural backgrounds. It would be fun to exchange some ideas/photos/videos... Exchange makes change. Live and let live. So my challenge will focus on "cross-culture".

To join this challenge, you just need to compare 2 or more cultures that you have experienced. Any form of content is welcome, you can write a short essay, post a photo story, create a drawing/painting/animation/design, share a quick video, record your voice of talking or singing... all fine! It would be great to hear your personal stories soaking up in different cultures. Share your inspiration with us!

Then what is culture? 🧐

Back in my uni course of Cultural Studies, there's been heated discussion about what exactly culture is. To some extent, it seems almost everything can be seen as culture. To give you a bit inspiration, here's one of the definitions:

Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people, encompassing language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts, etc..

So that's it, just go pick a cultural topic (language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts, etc..) from 2 or more particular groups of people that you are familiar with, and show the differences to us in a certain form. Inspire me and other Steemians! Tell us any culture shock you experienced or any changes it brought to you!

Here are the rules and rewards 👇

You can choose between leaving a short comment or making a longer post.

谢谢牛肉Pho 我很喜欢吃 鸡肉的也不错


Great entry. Personally I don’t think it’s a dry subject. It’s fun to read your post. Thanks for entering!

Not entering, just stopping in to say that your headline photo is layered with social commentary. Excellent work!

Great to hear you noticed that! Thank you for dropping by. =)

Absolutely a great idea !!! I recently was absent on steemit because I had to relocate to Canada. For the moment I will resteem it and then work out to write a post. And obvioulsy post about my stay in Canada


Hey Phil, was thinking of you, but haven't seen you for a while, so didn't mention you. I have never been super active here either, so must missed out a lot. Cool to hear about your new destination! Look forward to your post. I'm flying to Sardinia in a week. Have you been there before?


Wow !!! Yes I have been to Sardinia more than 10 years ago. If you have chance try Culurgionis they similar to dumpling made of potatoes and inside typical ricotta cheese. I do not remember if you drink alcool red wine Canonau and liquor fil e ferru . I also look forward to reading about your stay in Sardinia :) By the way I was and I am sometimes on discord chat with other members :) And obviously I resteemed your post... Unfortunately Partiko does not work with my laptop is it only for mobile phone? I have to solve it


Ok, Culurgionis... I'll remember this! Thanks for your tips Phil. Yes @Partiko is a mobile app - pretty neat, try it out! If you have a lot to say, just copy your content from your laptop and paste it to Partiko. :)


You're welcome In which part of Sardinia are you going ? I will do the best to set up this Partiko


No idea yet, might be driving around in a tiny Fiat 500 like some locals, haha...


Awesome you should visit "caves of Golfo of Orosei" one of the most beautiful location I have ever visited around all Italy :) Be careful around the north around I think Porto Cervo is very expensive but probably in this part of the year it is low season probably won't be. In the countryside you may find roads full of sheeps :) :)
