Does anyone ever "meet the locals"?

Jump to last reply

People often include meeting locals in what they want to do when they travel. Does anyone really meet "locals" when they travel?

That's not my goal when I go to Europe. I want to see the architecture, take in the ambiance, see the countryside. When I meet people I usually enjoy it, but that's not why I travel. I want to learn about the history and culture, and I guess that's pretty hard to do without interacting with the inhabitants of the area, but it's secondary or tertiary for me.
