Living Abroad: Bonding with the Locals | InterNations Blog

Basically the lesson I learned from this is that living in a different country does not necessarily mean you are experiencing it properly. Of course it is comforting to have a group of people around you with whom you can go through the beginning hardships of expat life together with, however don’t limit yourself to this group. After all, you are there to get a taste of the country and its people as well, and visiting tourist sites, restaurants, and doing the things that expats or tourists do, is far from what locals do! Trust me, it’s well worth the effort!
