I’ve been continuing my recce all over Northern Ireland this week for the upcoming TV series I’m working on.
It has been really interesting to be honest. Here are some things I learnt this week that I didn’t know before….
- butterflies only live a couple of months 🙁
- nitrates give bacon its bright pink colour, and nitrates are actually a carcinogenic
- hens are a type of chicken like dairy cows are a type of cattle (I’ve always wondered about that but felt too stupid to ask)
I learnt a whole lot of other interesting bits this week but can’t remember them at the moment.
Highlights of the week were a very chilled stay at a hotel in Enniskillen, visiting a great farm shop, and discovering a little ice cream company. I’m quite enjoying driving around finding out interesting stuff. I also went to a place that would be pretty cool to take a special lady to. I’m not saying where that is though.
