    totally doing this in a more focused way. I've done this partially through Couchsurfing and when I lived in NYC. I do it to some extent now, but where I am based is not so conducive. However, when I travel I always make it a point of having a coffee with someone local to learn about them and the locale.

    Great concept. Same thing applies when coming to a new one - just takes a little more guts :)

    I think this is brilliant advice! Makes me want to do this now.
