Thank you! As many tourists as there are where I live, I never want to look like them or do any of the lame touristy things that they do. do your research before you go somewhere, befriend a local, dive deep into the culture. Be a traveler!!!!
Do yourself a favor before it is too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late. Jhumpa Lahiri.
