Welcome to Preventi Shoes. We Are Global Nomads

Let’s face it, it’s not cool to be a tourist

por Felipe Olaya

Todos nuestros esfuerzos parecen inútiles, los taxistas nos timan, los locales nos miran raro, y no importa cuánto dominemos el idioma, siempre se dan cuenta de que somos turistas. Porque acabamos comiendo en restaurantes turísticos, tomando cafés en cadenas de cafeterías poco autóctonas e incluso llegamos a perdernos secretos que sólo los nativos conocen y que no aparecen en las guías.

Pero eso se ha acabado, al menos para los global nomads que visiten Nueva York, Londres, Singapur, Melbourne, San Francisco, Paris, Pekín y Bangkok. Ha llegado “How Not To Be A Tourist”: la guía para vestir, actuar y vivir como un nativo. Desde recomendaciones de looks hasta cafeterías llenas de autóctonos, pasando por tradiciones de fines de semana como las plazas de mercado y consejos sobre lo que nunca, nunca bajo ningún concepto hay que hacer.

Y ahora, a viajar. Y si un turista os dice “S’il vous plait, la Tour Eiffel”, ya sabéis porqué es.

It doesn’t matter how hard we try. Taxi drivers take half of the budget of our trip, locals stare at us and even if you are nearly bilingual, they always discover the truth: you are a tourist. And as tourists we end up eating at touristic restaurants, drinking coffee in american food chains and we even miss local secrets that only natives know and that don’t appear in travel guides.

But hey, that’s over now. At least for global nomads traveling to New York, London, Singapore, Melbourne, San Francisco, Paris, Beijing and Bangkok. For them there’s a new guide in town: “How Not To Be A Tourist”. The guide to look, act and live as a local. You’ll find tips on how to dress, local cafés, weekend traditions such as food markets and some very necessary advices on what you must not do, never.

If on your next trip to Paris, a tourist asks you “S’il vous plait, la Tour Eiffel?”,  then you’ll know you got it right.
