Yes this is another pick your own post. All this unusual stuff to select and pick is a bit of a novelty for a Brit previously restricted to strawberries and the odd goosegog. A clever idea on behalf of the farmers wanting to make good use of the odd spare corner of land. Very trusting […]
There are many things you can take away with you from a trip – memories, souvenirs, and in my case countless countless pictures.
