Local is the New Luxury
“Whether in a remote corner of Africa, or in Damascus, one of the oldest cities on earth, or in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the highest standards of hospitality are achieved…without sacrificing the distinct qualities of local cultures and concerns.”
--Condé Naste Travel, Editor in Chief, Klara Glowczewska
Luxury these days is about having the time to take it easy, it’s not about stuff. It’s about having the smarts to spend your money deliberately, with companies and people who share your values. It’s about having enough heart to care for your health and the well-being of your loved ones—including Mother Earth. That luxury is a blessing for me this Thanksgiving (in the US). I hope it is for you also.
