Proud Dad yesterday as my son received good enough A level grades to join Portsmouth University for the next three years.
With my daughter already two years into an English degree in the People's Republic of South Yorkshire, the next year is likely to be a little quiet around the house.
As a result Mrs W and I are already making plans to travel more.
My list includes Bamberg, Prague, Belgium - various sorties, Amsterdam, Peak District - must include Sheffield. You get the idea.
Any other ideas gratefully received.
Her list includes a cruise, Vegas, New York, New Forest,Suffolk and Kent - for birds, Barcelona and Rome.
Pete Brown's latest book, Hops and Glory, gives just enough flavour of a Med cruise to give it a go (I think I have just about reached a certain age where cruising is acceptable). However, I must research the beer opportunities of the other places before I commit.
Many of the World's most famous beery places have been well covered on books and blogs over the years but hopefully this blog will be going International over the coming months.
