The coronavirus pandemic has encouraged a lot of city dwellers to embrace life in the countryside. Remote work arrangement has made their dreams possible. They can make the most of the time outside the house without fearing unwanted interactions with crowds.
There’s also something deeply satisfying about going back to a rural living. It is in our roots. People are made to enjoy life built on the soil.
