Back From A Roadtrip - Next one ahead...

The last few weeks I didn't really get to enjoy as much whisky as I usually do. First I was pretty occupied with a paper for a course at the university and then I went to a little roadtrip with two friends. We made this trip to France to watch two matches of the Swiss national team at the football European Championship. First we drove from Zurich to Lille where Switzerland played the host France. Lille is a great city with good food and a good beer. The match was quite boring but the atmosphere was great.
In the city of Lille
After two days in Lille we crossed the border to Belgium and spent e days in Bruges. The city is just amazing and one of the most beautiful I've ever been to. One great thing about Belgium is their beer. The standard quality is outstanding and there is a vast variety.
Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel. A great beer from Bruges based brewery "de Halve Maan"
From Bruges we drove to Dijon the capital of Burgundy. There we only stayed one night but had a great time with great food again. Then we travelled to St- Etienne whe Switzerland played Poland in the round of 16. The game was great although Switzerland lost but at least we got to see the most beautiful goal of the tournament.

Now back in Switzerland I am already preparing for another roadtrip. On this one thoug I am sure I will get to enjoy a little bit more whisky because I am travelling to Scotland for two weeks. Me and my friend Pascal who is a whisky enthusiast aswell will drive to the promised land of every malthead for the first time and I am really looking forward to visiting distilleries and hopefully meeting up with fellow whisky bloggers and enthusiasts.

We will be in Scotland from July 9-23. If you want to meet up with us don't be shy and write me a mail or hit me up on social media.

Cheers, Julian
