Last week I was lucky enough to have two friends come to visit me for a few days and, being the good friends they are, I was treated to all kinds of luxuries from back home. It was like Christmas all over again.
But what kind of luxuries could I be talking about? After all, Ryanair only allows a minimal amount of luggage space and weight per passenger…
Well, food. And a healthy variety of it. I was treated to two packs of sausages, proper Danish bacon (smoked and unsmoked) and a block of real English cheddar cheese – I couldn’t believe my luck!
Don’t get me wrong, Poland produces some fantastic food – I am still particularly impressed by the wide choice of sausages on offer when you walk into a butchers. But sometimes there’s nothing quite like a bit of home-grown grub (well, perhaps not the Danish bacon) to hit the spot.
Here’s hoping my friend’s return again soon before I run out.
