When traveling one of the best things you can do is to interact with local people and listen to their stories. They tell you all about their life and you gain real and authentic insights into their culture and country. And Sometimes it opens up new possibilities and experiences that you can not book with your travel agency: From getting invited by a HINDI pRIEST to his Himalayan mountain village, to spending time with gauchos on a remote horse farm in Patagonia or staying with berber people in the atlas mountains in Morocco. Some of my best memories from abroad are with or because of locals. This is a collection of SOME of the locals I have met.
