  1. Great photos in this part and the previous one. Seeing the lady dressed up as Molson instantly made me want a bottle of it. It’s one of my most favourite beers but virtually impossible to buy in the UK. Grrr! xx

    • Thank you Cate! Molson is your favorite, that is pretty awesome that a Canadian beer is your fav. Next time I’m the UK I will see if the duty free has them (they are super cheap here to buy).
