Herb and Spice visit London (photos from my trip)

Hello all!

Herb and Spice are members of a Greek donkey family (they are six in total) who travel with TAGFers (TA Greece Forums) around the world.

Their first trip was in London and here are the photos:

Some of you might find it silly but for us is a way to feel close to each other, even though we are miles apart!

Hope you enjoy them!

Thalia

Very nice. Which one is Herb? And is his/her name pronounced "Herb" or "'erb"?

Herb is the boy (with the blue hat) and his name is pronounced like the herbs we use for cooking (with a very "airy" H).

We had a very good time, we miss London already!

I see that you were at Selfridges, did you treat the donkeys to a salt beef sandwich in the food hall?

Too funny!

I love the photos where Herb and Spice are looking out of windows at the passing view.

Is there a thread anywhere that talks about where the donkey family have travelled?

Herb & Spice are actually on a cultural exchange visit - they travelled from UK to Athens, whilst Panathas the Tiger has come over to UK for the summer. Two other donkeys, Joey & Zoe, will be flying to Preveza in 3 weeks time for a couple of weeks touring Northern Greece. They will then travel to a few places in the UK, including a trip to Devon with Panathas in September. Panathas has already been to Scotland. The remaining two donkeys, Don & Kay, are soon off to Poland, then maybe to Isle of Man TT Races, before joining another greek forum member & her family for a summer trip to the Pelopponese.

Many exploits will be shown on my flickr site

navigate through the sets to find donkeys & Panathas.

No salt beef sandwich but a juicy steak&ale pie with lots of gravy!!!

I'm glad you liked them, Tsipouro above is the "mother" of this concept and the provider of the donkeys!
