Live the Way Locals Do! Reviews

I guess the most enjoyable way of understanding a city would be to live or hang out with locals whenever you get the chance to :) Check out www.couchsurfing.com and you might be lucky to bunk with some locals who would bring you around the city. Some might not offer couches, but they'd be free enough to show you around the cities, plus it would be easier to discover the local hangouts and stuff.
In Europe, always make it a point to drop by at the friendly tourism offices, you could ask anything you'd like to ask and they will be happy to give you pointers. It's way easier than spending time browsing through the Internet for info, especially when many of the sites are in European languages lol!
I guess it's also important to try out the local eateries for a satisfying experience. My experience tells me to trust the queues. A good boulanger often has a queue of fanatics waiting to taste the best pastries and breads!
And if you miss the taste of home, don't be surprised that Europe loves your fast food too! :)
