One of the worst sins a person commits while traveling is staying on the beaten path. Some travelers—Americans—venture into a new land and play it safe. Instead of exploring and discovering the unique elements of a foreign culture, they stay within the guardrails of their sojourn by visiting the most obvious tourist attractions. I've even heard it said that uninspired American tourists will have dinner at the local McDonald's to "see what it's like in a different country."
Part of their aversion to new experiences comes from fear. Embracing another culture can be overwhelming and intense. Sure, you might want to be adventurous and try a new restaurant, but what should you order when you get there? What do the locals enjoy? The whole process can become intimidating and force you to seek the familiar irrespective of how antithetical it seems to the notion of travel. Luckily for us, not all guides are made equally.
