17. Actually Go Inside The Buildings
When you only have a day or two inside of a particular city, chances are you just ooh and ahh over the outside of the decadent, history-book-like buildings and race on to the next spot. But push yourself to go inside - chances are they're more mind blowing on the inside then the out.

Case in point was this one building I passed almost every day in Sevilla. I knew it was a church, but always racing to get some brownie in a cafe, I never stopped to peek in. Until one day I did and I literally stood with my mouth hanging open in the doorway. The walls were ink blue and they had millions of stars painted across them, with ornate statues of Biblical figures strewn across. Trust me. Go into the churches, parliaments, libraries, and castles. You won't regret it.
