I do enjoy picking up free county magazines on my travels. There are some wonderful publications these days that highlight everything in their county from pub lunches to tax accountants and how to get your business noticed. I’d been passing through a very posh home county and stopped off for lunch. A pile of these lovely glossy magazines was on the counter near the food ordering desk. The setting was a little family run bistro which had featured in a half page ad in a previous issue, I saw that and decided to look them out. The place was very busy, atomosphere so friendly – I ordered more than I usually would – simply because I was enjoying looking round; the lad serving me seemed genuinely pleased to have a visitor in who was keen to know about them. He provided masses of local info and that encouraged me to stay longer and have a really good look around – so a fantastic advert for his bistro!
