Begin with some thanks.

My Pozible is successful! My tickets are bought, my bag is packed and my dog has gone on his own 3 month holiday. I am ready to start this trip of discovery.

To get to where I am now has taken more than you might think. Leaving people, jobs, towns, cities and animals that I care about behind. Without the understanding and help of these people (and dog) I wouldn’t be where I am today. 

Without the fantastic help of friends, family and willing strangers my bags would not be packed with a brilliant little computer and camera. Both are coming with me on this trip and will act as a portal for all who wish to peek into the world of international investigation of beer culture and traditions.

So while this is not such an interesting blog post I want to use it to thank everyone who has helped me get to where I am. I am so grateful to be supported so generously by so many people. I am grateful that they have enabled me to go out and do something that I love and something that will help create a company that will let me (and soon other people) do what I love, every day… As a job.
