All the Things You're Doing Wrong When You Travel, According to Anthony Bourdain
MEGAN LEONHARDT, Money
Skip the tourist traps. Avoid the lines. And please, please, never book a prepackaged tour.
Anthony Bourdain, celebrity chef, writer, travel documentarian, and television personality dedicated much of his life to a mission - to change how we see and experience the world. Bourdain's recommendation? Get real when you travel.
“The sort of frenzied compression of time needed to take the tour, to see the sights, keeps you in a bubble that prevents you from having magic happen to you. Nothing unexpected or wonderful is likely to happen if you have an itinerary in Paris filled with the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower.”
