  • A trip to Montserrat Pons in Spain

    I am thinking to visit Montserrat Pons (Spain) in September 2016 , to London , Italy and elsewhere in Europe . Does anyone interest to join the trip for fun ?
    If yes, have to make plan from now

    Mai, what a great plan! Once a year my wife and I take a major (fig) vacation, Last year we did two weeks in Provence and Paris. Two years ago it was Northern Italy and the Greek Islands (yeah Ponte Tresa!!!). This year we are going to Mexico to see the monarch butterflies and later in the year to Alaska, so no Europe or figs for us.
    I am sure that there will be many fig enthusiasts who will join you, though. I will be happy to provide information of our itineraries to anyone who asks, including the coordinates of the Ponte Tresa mother tree. I will IM you with specifics.

      That is high on my "things to do" list but i will be in Morocco in september to apply for a passport for my kid.
      It's not a bad thing to be in Morocco during harvest season though and this time i will bring cuttings!
