First, what is the legal drinking age? In the US it's 21.
This is our family’s first trip to Europe: Austria, Denmark, Spain and Italy. I have been preaching about the need to embrace local culture of museums, art, and ruins. My teenage son has really grasped the concept and the importance of local cultural and stepping out of one’s comfort zone. Now, I know why. He found out that the local drinking age in Austria and Rome is 16.. He is ready to embrace that part of the culture:-) I am not quite ready to back track or embrace.
