Another Trip to Europe
« on: July 02, 2019, 12:04:58 AM »
We leave tomorrow for a Mediterranean Cruise with our kids and all of Eileen's family.  Fly into Rome, stop in Sicily, Croatia, Malta and end in Venice.  We'll see what I find to drink in port and on the boat...

A lot of fizzy yellow stuff, probably.  The big beer in Croatia is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karlova%C4%8Dko

Sounds awesome, have a blast man! :cheers: :ale:

No doubt there will be interesting (and cheap) wines if that interests you at all.
There is a good Italian beer scene though in the larger cities.

Check out this place "when in Rome" :D

They typically have some Cantillon specialties and a great draft selection.

Didn't make a whole lot of time to find beer places, as there were 13 people in the group.  During the cruise, selections were super limited.  I drank all the Franziskaner Weissbier then worked through a bunch of Heineken and SA Rebel. 

Hit a great pub in Valetta, Malta - The Pub
I could have hung out there all day.



In Venice, we hit https://www.ilsantobevitorepub.com/ a couple times.  Great selection and pretty solid light food options.

Those both look awesome. Plus there's Cantillon at Il Santo Bevitore :excited: :cheers:

Did you roll up to the Venice pub in a boat?
How was the rest of the trip? :popcorn:

Not many boat trips.  All walking all the time.

The trip was good.  I have decided that a cruise isn't for me as you just don't have enough time in any port to really get a feel for the city.  I'd rather have a couple days per place.

Yeah, that would suck to feel rushed. I'd also imagine having conflicting feelings if you loved one city but had to leave after only a few hours there. Maybe it gives you a better idea of where to go back on future trips. :cheers:
