See the culture centre, see the art work surrounding you, watch out for animals and give them time to pass. Also, go on every walk you see and always say hello to other walkers :)
Everyone was really friendly by sharing info about the walks around the area. Sam was kind enough to give me a lift to see the sunset which made my day. The owners are both extremely friendly ! Thanks guys
