Are you planning your next big adventure? Worried about navigating tourist traps? Want to ensure you respect cultural norms? You're in the right place. Travel Like a Local is a guide meant to help you explore the world like an experienced traveler— not a tourist. 

A bit about me: I'm Emily, a 22 year old gal from Southeast Michigan and recent Michigan State University alum. I currently work at a nonprofit in Lansing, MI, and I tend to use all of my PTO to travel :) With two parents that worked for the airlines, I've had the privilege of having the opportunity to travel since I was a little kid. I'm still learning as I go, but I hope this guide can provide you helpful insights into the same places you may travel!
