t here’s something extra yummy about the term ‘local flavor.’ It connotes chin-drizzling freshness, farmer’s market quaintness and maybe a dash of loveable kook. Now that honeymoons and home-town pride are no longer mutually exclusive, it might be fine time to embrace your burg with the zeal of an outsider. The local holiday is definitely in vogue, and any craze championing economic smarts is worth your adoption. All you need to stay at ease at home is a super suite, regenerated outlook and neglected cell phone. Love-nesting never tasted so peachy. tourist de force

s urprise weddings are gaining popularity, but the term still incites the occasional raised brow and ‘say what?’ Just think of it as an inverse surprise party, but instead of a room full of those on-the-in crouching behind couches, it’s two hush-hush lovers setting the stage to spill their dirty deets.
