The 8 Rules of Local Travel

It’s not just about traveling in your own city, province, or country (although we think that’s really important, too). Here are our rules for traveling like a local traveler – whether your adventure takes you around the corner or around the world:

  1. If you can drive, don’t fly. If you can take the bus, don’t drive. If you can cycle or walk, don’t take the bus.
  2. Stick to the back roads whenever possible.
  3. If something isn’t in your plan but it looks interesting, adapt your plan.
  4. Ask lots of questions.
  5. Support local vendors, restaurants and shops.
  6. Leave things the way you found them.
  7. Share your experience with others.
  8. Have a lot of fun.
