Meet your mom’s hairdresser’s nephew (or whoever) – Road trip tip

Maybe it’s your mom’s hairdresser’s nephew, and chances are you’ll have nothing in common. But you never know…

It’s worth grabbing a coffee with an acquaintance (however many times removed), if you don’t know a new city or country. It makes a completely different kind of trip when someone takes you to their favorite cafe or recommends an obscure nearby venue when you mention you like folk music.

Bonus: because you’ll meet someone a friend or family member knows, you’re strengthening your relationships at home!
