Stuff It !!!

Following yesterday’s post,  showing the struggle when packing suitcases, this piece from the 2017 Garderen Sand Sculpture exhibition show the next struggle: getting it all in the car. The information board reads: “Packing”, “Do we have everything we need? Clothes, tent, cooking utensils? Enough peanut butter and potatoes? Everyone in a good mood and we’re ready to go.”

The joke here is because Dutch people going abroad often taken their own peanut butter (because it’s the brand they love) and even stranger, they also take potatoes and an entire heap of other groceries because not only are they the brands or sorts they love, they are often far cheaper. In Germany, France, Belgium, Austria and quite a few other European countries groceries are more expensive, only in Spain, and parts of Portugal are they significantly cheaper. I’d be interested to hear if you ever take any of your own foodstuffs from your country or area with you when you go on holiday?
