Adventure travellers should take time to explore a new location when they arrive and make sure they venture off the beaten track, according to one globetrotter.
Professional surfer Amee Donohoe revealed that she always makes time to go out and explore the places she visits for surf contests.
In an interview with Boots n All magazine, she explained that she will book an extra week or two after a competition "just to explore, look at the culture and meet the people".
Ms Donohoe also noted that travelling all over the world has changed her perceptions and helped her "really evolve as a person".
When asked where she would like to visit next, she revealed that Chile is top of her wish list.
"I flew over it on my way home from Brazil a few years ago and it's called to me ever since," she stated.
Bordering Argentina and Peru with a long coastline that meets the Pacific Ocean, Chile is well known for its surf spots, with Punta Lobos, El Toro (La Bestia) and Lebu among those recommended by Global Surfers.
