Be Prepared, Know the Hometown News
Wondering what people will be talking about when you reach a new destination? What should you know, be able to talk about? Whether your destination is a city or a country, you can find out what’s happening there by setting a Google News Alert (http://www.google.com/alerts). Get the news daily, or weekly or as it happens. Choose written news, videos, or blogs. Be prepared. Surprise people with what you know. Read the Google News Alerts for three weeks before you travel and be able to talk knowledge – sports or politics, economics. Check it out before you go.
