When we talk about “getting the lay of the land,” we don’t just mean familiarizing ourselves with a place — it’s also a very literal nod to the ground below our feet. Across physical and cultural borders, agriculture is something that ties much of the world together: it acts as a cornerstone to whatever culture develops around it.

This week we’re talking about how our travels have brought us closer to the land itself. Join us, @chrisluckhardt, @Destaddict, @TravelDazeco and the Passion Passport community this Wednesday 16th from 2:30pm EST to share your most down-to-earth travel moments and get to know other places better through their more rustic aspects.
