As I was writing the headline for this post, my first thought was – some readers would probably prefer the Never versus the Late. But for me, I’ve got some catching up to do with Mr. Pink’s Pinkcasts, so here we go.
Let’s cut right to the chase; here are the five tips, followed by Dan’s video, filmed in Copenhagen. A city high on the list of places I want to visit.
- go to the highest place you can find for the incredible vista and to get a sense of the layout of the city
- buy a local newspaper, even if you can’t read it (hmmmm….)
- ride public transportation to get a sense of the daily life of the people who live there
- go to McDonald’s to see what local specialties they have (and you’ll get to hear Dan curse on this one – I was shocked!)
- go to a grocery store
It seems like the central theme of his advice is to act like a local as much as you can.
Now if he could only include advice on how to afford such travel…
