Cheshire to Stansted. Stansted to Ancona. Ancona onwards exploring. No plastic challenges so far. Until lunchtime in Loreto. I ordered a bottle of cold sparkling water. Plastic bottle. D’oh!
Popped to a store to buy ingredients for lunch tomorrow. Damn it, I didn’t bring from home all my re-used re-usable placcy bags. Which meant I had to get a new one. Arghhhh.
We’ve noticed that all of the gelaterias in this area serve you your cone with a mini cone. This is to scoop and eat your ice-cream with… Instead of a plastic spoon! I guess the Italians around here are just too posh to lick!
Ascoli Piceno. A gorgeous wee city in southern Marche. The local delicacy is their large local olive stuffed with meat and truffle, and fried. Thankfully, some places serve meat free versions. We had some for a late lunch, along with fries. Both delicious, AND served in paper, with a long wooden kebab stick to eat it all with. No plastic anywhere. It’s all far too classy and tasteful for plastic around here! Too posh for plastic.
