3. Realize the first person you meet doesn’t know everything
Even if your airport cab driver is the most entertaining, charismatic dude you’ve met since your zany high school chemistry teacher, it doesn’t mean that he’s right when he tells you the best restaurant in Seattle is at the Space Needle. Because it’s not.
4. Open up Tinder
Yes, it CAN be used for things other than shopping-mall bathroom rendezvous, so see if you can find some locals to show you around, or at least give you some pointers. Just make sure your picture looks good.
5. Lie a little
We’re not saying make yourself an astronaut who used to play professional badminton and started Instagram in his basement. But you’re alone and you’re never going to see these people again, so feel free to embellish a little on your 8-6 job in the compliance department.
