Finns don't kiss people on the cheek as a greeting. Ever.

If Finns kiss, then penetration is expected to follow.

This reminds me of the first time i met a friend from France. i didn't know at that time it was custom, so after the kisses, i told him "Dude, im sorry, but i don't swing that way." he freaking lost it XD

In Hungary, I remember a divide between districts in my Uni Town: in Upper Town of Szeged you give three kisses, starting from your left. In every other district you give two, usually starting from your right. This leads to much confusion and situations commonly referred to as "the dance of the cobra" where two people are trying to decide how many kisses would be appropriate and what side to start with, ending up bobbing their heads in an amusing manner...

Any amount of kisses other than 0 is awkward to me.

Is there a Scandinavian horror movie yet: "Return of the Touchy-Feely Tourists", or something?

It is so complicated in France, we even have maps to avoid any akwardness... Sadly, there are differents maps ! There's one with comments in english so you can see how much trouble we're in : http://img.ev.mu/images/articles/960x/443477.jpg

We nordics are really awkward in general. The whole "check for neighbours you can avoid them" is especially weird. I think that's just Sweden though, isn't it?
