The sound of silence…

Sooo, it’s been insanely quiet here.

I don’t think there ever has been more than a week of nothing before, but now it’s up to three weeks. This happened because of summer holidays for the last two weeks. Before that, I was insanely busy with work and some side projects that took all the time I was willing to sit behind a screen.

My plan for now is to start picking up blogging a bit more from now on, so I can (hopefully) get back three posts per week or so.

During the last two weeks I spent camping in Burgundy I somehow ended up drinking quite some okay-ish beers from random supermarkets. I did bring some whisky samples that I had scattered around the house for ages. Strangely, in one of the best known wine regions of the world, I only drank a single bottle of wine in two weeks.

So my intention is to pick up the pace a little bit compared to last year(s) in which I only wrote a bit once or twice per week. Fingers crossed I can find the motivation/focus/drive to do so.

Some booze realizations I’ve done over the last couple of weeks:

  • I really don’t like the flavor of Campari. That stuff is vile.
  • Marc de Bourgogne is not something to not drink for two years. I opened my bottle two years ago and it has gone completely flat.
  • In the world of beer, price is no longer an indicator of quality. There are some many breweries trying to cash in on the hype and most of it is only so-so. This is making me kind of jaded in regards to buying all kind of 5-euro-or-more bottles of average IPA or too light stout.
  • I still like whisky the most.
  • Mezcal is too expensive for what it is. I’ve not bought any for a few years and I barely drink it, but a random bottle clocks in for a hundred or more bucks here, which is just too much.

That’s it for now.
