Lately I am seeing more and more on the world-wide web about being local. For me this started because I greatly enjoyed the local food on Paros--the eggs were heavenly. I have written often about the benefits of eating locally.
Now I think the economic slow down around the world has encouraged "buy local" movements. Paros people, I know, are pulling together as never before. Well, how about travel local? Yes, a new internet concept has debued in Athens with the web site www.Dopios.com and is spreading to other major cities.
Their services include:
- Customized Experiences and Tours by Locals
- Traditional Dinner with Local
- Casual Meetups with General Location Overview
- General Advice about your Destination
Perhaps browse their site for good ideas and then think about doing the same on Paros.
