50. Visit a foreign destination long enough to feel like a local.
Beyond sight-seeing and and tourist attractions, try to stay an extra day or so and just live in the city - without itineraries or to-do lists. Hop in a cafe and spend an afternoon sipping coffee and people watching. Lay out a blanket at the park. Pick up groceries at the neighborhood market and have dinner at home. One of my personal favorites - shopping their local pharmacy or convenience stores for everyday necessities like shampoo, eyeliner, and snacks. It’s these moments that you can begin to get to know the city for what it is.
