The Best Thing since Sliced Bread

I think Islanders, no matter where they're from, have got it right. People from islands tend to do things just a little bit differently from us mainlanders.

One of the everyday things I saw, on the island of São Miguel, Azores, was a service for bread delivery. Those of you who know me well, will know that bread is one of my favourite foods. However, having the bread come to your door, brings it to another level altogether!

On São Miguel, bread is a very important part of one's diet. It is eaten with almost every meal. That being said, it is not unusual to see bread vans with signs reading "Transport and Sale of Bread" in any given neighbourhood.

These companies also don't expect cash on delivery. The vendors will simply leave a package of bread for you on your front door.

Now, rather than the paper, wouldn't you like to see this first thing in the morning?

What a great idea; a bakery that comes to you! (It's the small things that make me happy.)
