When you live in the country, you get used to compromise.
You might have to drive forty minutes to get a nice platter of sashimi, but if you just want a couple of sushi rolls, the bakery in the next town over does those.
The place might be packed full of tourists every Summer and Easter holiday, but on the other hand, there are a LOT of great cafés that you can enjoy when the tourists are gone. And three pizza shops, for some reason. (We’ve only been to two so far. And one of those is in a shop that used to be an amazing tea shop, so I have conflicted feelings about their pizzas.)
And when it’s time for something sweet, we might be miles away from the best vanilla slices in the world, but we’ve found something that’s almost as good.
