Hand gestures may offend in other countries

If you're hitting the trails in the U.K., Italy, Thailand, or some other countries, you may be unwittingly flipping someone the bird in another (hand) language.

For example, the hand signal for a peace sign or number 2 in some countries is the same as flipping someone off whereas a thumbs-up is derogatory in other countries.
