    I’ve never thought about using a VPN before but now that you’ve mentioned it it makes complete sense. Great post.

      It’s definitely an overlooked tip but can be super helpful!

    This guide is super helpful, thank you for the tips, Kiki! I always do a lot of research about my destinations, especially the best monuments and museums to visit, local delicacies & dishes to try, and where everything is located on the map (from the hotel to the train station, not to mention the landmarks). I also try to learn a few phrases if I’m not familiarized with the language – I think it’s always nice to show locals that I’m trying my best to immerse in their culture! 🙂

      Hi Daniela! I’m so happy to hear that! While it’s very fun to be spontaneous, I also like to do some research ahead of time to get some ideas of what I’d like to see and do…and try, in terms of food! Plus, learning some vocabulary or phrases is very helpful and I’ve found locals appreciate the effort!
