Travel Tips by Paulo Coelho
We present to your attention a few tips for traveling on the Brazilian writer and poet Paulo Coelho.
Walk to bars
This is where you can see the life of the city. I do not mean discotheques, but the places where there are local, drink, talk about God and the universe and are always open for a chat. Just buy yourself a newspaper, sit with her and watch the coming and going. If someone begins to talk, join it, even if the topic does not seem interesting. You will not see the beauty of the road, if you look at her through the open door.
The best guides are local. They know everything, proud of their city, but do not work for the agency. Just go out on the street, choose the person, ask questions such as: how to pass? If this is not the first udatsya, you get a second, and then I assure you, you will find a wonderful accompaniment for the whole day.

If you do not even speak the language of this country, do not be afraid: I have been in many countries, where he could not communicate with words, but I still always find help, received important advice and even make friends. Some are afraid to simply get lost while traveling, if there are some. Just keep in your pocket and a small hotel in a pinch to take a taxi, and a business card tucked under the driver's nose.
Do not do too much shopping
to spend money on things that you do not need to carry: tickets to the theater, going to restaurants, excursions. Nowadays the global market and the Internet you can buy anything and not have to pay at the same time advantage.
