How often do family members and friends visit you from other parts of the world or country? Do you take the time to show them around? While some shy away from the touristy activities, truth is, showing people around allows you to get to know your home a little better. Resembling a tour guide doesn’t have to be as technical as you may assume. Here are a few simple ways:
Take family and friends to your favorite spots. It’s easy to show people around when you’re passionate about the location. There’s a reason these are your favorite spots!
Do the things you’re not always exposed to. Instead of going to the movies, opt for a Broadway show you’re not 100% sure about. You may be pleasantly surprised! If not, it serves as an experience you can discuss with those you meet.
Try new places…randomly. As opposed to planning out exactly where to go, walk around and see what’s up. Feel a great vibe at a bar you’ve never been to? Don’t be afraid to walk in! You may just end up stumbling into your next favorite spot.
Make a mental note of the places and experiences that stand out and take other friends and family members to said places. The people you surround yourself with affect each experience you have, so while you may have visited a place before, different people will share different viewpoints. Maybe you’ll learn something new!
