6. NEW FOUND FRIEND
After a relaxing exploration, it’s time for conversations and sharing connections. Who knows where the conversation may lead? It’s always unique.
“Being shown around by the owner made it feel as if I was visiting a friend for tea and was being shown the new curtains….only in this case it was a 200 year old renovated staircase and a one of a kind carved ceiling, as well as fascinating anecdotes about living there. I finished the tour feeling like I’d been allowed a peek behind the scenes as opposed to being shown a presentation. Highly recommended.”
