7:00 AM — I’m one of those people who likes waking up at 7am even on the weekends. On a good day, I have a cup of tea and sit on my balcony to soak in some vitamin D, read a book, and meditate. Today was one of those days.

10:00 AM — Head to Y7 Studio in Melrose for a hip-hop hot yoga class. $25

Just like most people, I can't travel all the time (even though travel to me is like water for the soul.) I've lived in Los Angeles for 5 years now and have found to be completely bored with my city. I live in West Hollywood, work in Hollywood, my friends are all Hollywood and so basically, I only hangout in... you guess it... Hollywood. This is why I decided to try the Trulo Adventure Day

Last Thursday, I filled out my Adventure Request and within 24 hours, I was matched with an LA local in Manhattan Beach...

About Me: Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I’ve lived in Wellington, New Zealand--in the coastal suburb of Island Bay--for five months working as an au pair.

For 25 hours of work each week, I’m compensated with room a...

This city is where I found my love for travel and exploration, I was always up to explore not only the city of Philly but also hop on a train, plane or bus to check out other cities in the US and abroad. I am now back in Buffalo, but I travel as much as I can and I am always down f...

Age: 29 

Location: Palo Alto, CA 

About Me: I've lived in Palo Alto for most of my life aside from going to New York for college. I've seen this place change from a small suburban town that no one really knows about, to the tech capital of the world. The nightlife and food scene have exploded making Palo Alto a pretty cool spot to not only live, but to visit. I'm a huge foodie who loves the outdoors (although, I wouldn't say I'm "outdoorsy"), I travel as much as I can and...

When you’re in a new place, be there fully. Don’t compare this beach to that one, or this customer service to what you’re used to at home. You might as well have stayed put. Traveling is about embracing the unknown and being a part of it. Take it from our Trulos, and skip these nails-on-a-chalkboard actions to avoid being “that guy” abroad.

1. Put the Tech Away 


It’s awesome to take photos when you’re in a new place, but please, leave the selfie stick at home. Rather choose to interact with people (I know, crazy right?...
