After leaving Madrid, I spent one night in Cáceres, before heading to Portugal. In Lisbon I stayed for two nights, and on the second night I shared a smidgeon over half a bottle of Offley Ruby Porto, first with John Steinbeck’s Cup Of Gold, and afterwards on the balcony with a rather jolly Frenchman.
Back in November 2017, I visited Birmingham for the first time. Whilst it was certainly a place worth seeing, I’m not so sure it was worth lingering four nights for. That being said, I did consume this delicious porter in The Victoria one lunchtime.
Last Saturday night, on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, I had the privilege to finish off the Burns Hotel’s last remaining bottle of Walker & Scott Irish Whiskey. On Sunday I went to London.
With late autumn’s inclement weather and the colds that she brings, it is only fitting that one should delve into a new bottle of green ginger wine for restorative purposes. For me this time around it is not the classic Stone’s, but rather the accurate knock off: Tesco’s Green Ginger Wine.
Yesterday I walked 3 miles North from my house to the village of Haxby, where I stopped in at the local pub for some weightlifting. 20+ ounce weights to be approximate.
In early February I took advantage of a couple of days off by going to Scarborough for a mini vacation. Not Scarborough Ontario, but Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast. I figured I would stroll along the beach and perhaps find a pub or three to drink in.
