A totally different perspective on travelling

Not your usual trip 

It seems that there are thousands of posts about travelling and what kind of places you should see. However, there is one thing that I do not find any information about – the locals. That is why today I wanted to look into the best ways to meet locals while travelling. Personally, people are more interesting to me than some old buildings.  

That is why I changed the way I travel. I started looking for places that would help me to meet people without making it not feel natural. It seems that this way I was able to learn more about the country itself. Therefore, I think I can and should give you some recommendations for travelling because maybe you will fall in love with this way too.

Following the sounds 

It seems that music is universally loved, so you can be completely sure that you will find a lot of people in any concert you choose to go to. Moreover, this plan is also very good if you live in a smaller country, and famous artists rarely come to play there. This way you can meet the locals and enjoy a fascinating concert or even a festival of your choice.  

Furthermore, it is so easy to start a discussion with others in a venue while waiting for an artist. For example, even talking about your favorite songs might be a start of a new friendship. You can come back home with so much more than just a few souvenirs if you make new friends. So, why not give it a try while listening to your favorite tunes?

Taking risks 

This one might sound a bit unusual, but it is actually one of the easiest ways to meet locals. Try to go to a casino. Yes, you have read that right. It is just one of those places where the environment is always so friendly, as people come there to enjoy their evenings. People in casinos are usually extroverts who love to talk with others, so it is perfect if you want to learn more about the country from locals. 

I understand that not everyone might feel ready to go to a casino, and that is alright. You can always practice playing some games online to prepare for the real thing. It is quite easy, so you can read more about the games and get ready for probably the best night out ever.

Stay updated 

This part is a little bit tricky, but it is worth keeping in mind. My advice would be to always check Facebook for any relevant events for you. This way you will be able to visit places which are new to you and also meet a lot of people. Are you interested in languages? Well, language cafes are now quite popular all around the world, so you can try finding one too.  

Moreover, this is a good way know that you are getting all types of experiences from your trip. If locals are going somewhere, then maybe they know what is the best. Why not join them?
