Our current technology enables us to reach out to people across the globe and have access to instant information. While there are certainly many benefits to this, there are also some less desirable consequences. Face-to-face conversational skills, as well as other social skills, seem to be going the way of the dinosaurs. But I digress...
One definite advantage is the ability to meet amazing people all across the planet. I recently had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of Jill Pendleton - a Dartmoor landlady for over twenty years - who is a huge supporter of local farming in her area. Please check out Jill's Blog and her website. If you are traveling to Dartmoor, Devon, check out her information on accommodation, food, and things to do in that area. In these challenging economic times it is important to support small family businesses. Doing so also keeps rural cultural traditions alive.
No matter where you live in this beautiful world of ours, take time to explore the world around you and meet the people who cherish, and share, their way of life.
