Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be invited to join a gang of business owners on at unique learning experience in New York. Yes you read that right…NYC!
On my recent travels I was lucky enough to stop by Florence, Italy. There I indulged in copious amounts of gelato (an absolute must) but I also visited Leonardo Leather Works - a showroom with a variety of leather products made in true Florentine tradition. Of course shopping was on the agenda, but first I sat through a leather demonstration where an expert taught us the difference between fake and real leather. She gave us tips on what to look for, how feel and touch is important and why most places spray that 'leather smell' to try and trick you.
A lot of the time when we look back on the past we only remember certain things; bad break ups, lavish holidays or that time you met a famous person. But what about the not so significant moments? How much are we really taking in? How much are we really remembering?
