Travel is an amazing adventure. Heading to a destination far from home can change you in ways you could never image. It can be inspiring, liberating, and enlightening but it can also be stressful, confusing and downright exhausting, particularly when you don’t know the lay of the land. Travel woes can be eased when you have a bit of local knowledge. But what if you don’t know a soul in your destination? Sure you can try to strike up a conversation with the locals, but that can be problematic, especially if a language barrier is involved. So how do you get access to expert local knowledge when you are in a foreign city? The clever people at Stay.com have come up with the perfect solution. You’ll wonder how you ever travelled without it. Read on for all the details …
