You know that awkward moment when you don’t know how to greet someone you first meet? Do you just shake their hand? Or do you give them the one arm hand shake and then a one arm hug at the same time? This has happened to me countless times since arriving in the UK but with time you start to learn the different types of greetings. People from the UK typically just go for the hand shake but people from places like Italy, France and Spain give two kisses on the cheek.
