Is it OK to fake it while travelling?

Sure, one of the best parts of travelling is the freedom to reinvent and reinvigorate yourself. But what happens if you take it too far and pretend to be someone you’re not? It’s a risky game. While most of us don’t masquerade as sportsmen to get free drinks from short-sighted, drunk soccer fans, most travellers at some time pretend to be someone else when they hit the road.
