There are just two things you just have to do to get the most out of a trip to a foreign land (be it a country or the world of social media).
- Learn how to speak the language.
- Always hire a good guide.
You might wonder why you need both. Wouldnʼt one or the other suﬃce? You can muddle through with one. But the experience is much better with both.
If you just learn to speak the language, you miss many of things that are oﬀ the beaten path and worth exploring that a guide can show you. If you just get the guide, itʼs hard to tell him exactly what your needs are, what parts you want to see, and the results youʼd like to get from the trip.
