I am from the US and I'm traveling to Europe next week for the first time ever. I have read that tipping culture at restaurants and bars is different over there, so I wondered if this is true and if anyone knows, how should I prepare accordingly?

Tips in the EU aren’t mandatory but always very liked by servers and waiters. Tip if you liked the service, dont if you didn’t like the service, about 10% usually is good

What part of Europe? Tipping culture varies a lot from country to country. Restaurants in touristy places are more used to receiving tips, but in most countries it is not really a mandatory thing. It's something you do if the service is excellent. Check with the tourist office or local guide to see what's normal for the specific area you're in.

It’s highly dependent on the part of europe. I myself manage a restaurant in the Netherlands where wages are decent for wait staff and full time contracts can carry you over decently so we see an avg of 4 to 10% tip per table.

However it’s not mandatory to tip but pretty customary to do so.

Convince me travel isn’t all bad rn: just talked to a coworker who came back from Greece. Trip itself was fine but the travel was horrible: Lost bags on the way, long lines for everything, missed/delayed/cancelled flights, entire group of 8 (who all went home to different destinations) had 1-2 days added to travel back and slept in the airport. Is this happening to everyone? Is this only effecting certain destinations/layover airports? I’m type A plans for everything so this is making me feel 😬😭

How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving.

Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.
