I never used to bring home food from vacation, except for maybe omiyage (gifts) for others. However, Mariko always does lots of shopping for local foods, and bring them home to enjoy and now I am starting to really appreciate that.
So, packing light in order to have more space in the luggage for goodies is a thing for me. On the latest trip, I brought back several cans of local beer. And let me tell you, the extra effort in bringing it home made it made it much tastier!
Mariko brought a couple of growlers back from Colorado, but they are so huge that we were worried it would be too much for just two of us to drink at dinner, so they’ve been sitting in the fridge. Well, tonight was the night! And actually, it was a good size for two of us. 🙂
