    will do!

    Likely fly to Sydney about a week into July or so, want to wait so I'm sure I get my letter from the school so I can accept

    Then about one week or so i Sydney, followed by about one week in Brisbane, then hit Melbourne after that, so perhaps last week of July or so?

    I'll make sure to email you once I've booked the international flights, then ask for some help with domestic Aussie flights.

    Hui, I've learned something! Really always thought, that Duckstein was from my neighbourhood, and that it was one of the reasons for the sporadic hop smell in the air. But Perth definitely is too far away. :loco: Huch, how many beers you know! Impressively! What do you think, how many (official) beer sorts are there all over the world.. round about?

    well of course there is the German Duckstein too :headbang:

    oh my, there are soooo many beers!
    on ratebeer I think there are among or over 200,000 diferent, including on offs and retired beers, but there are maaany beers not on ratebeer

    I've sampled and rated about 5950 different commercially available beers so far

    but if you add home brews, well the numbers will climb :Spin:

    Possible plans right now is to leave Gothenburg July 7 and land July 8 local time in Singapore.
    Relax until morning of July 10 and head for Sydney.

    Do Sydney - Brisbane - Melbourne - Geelong - Tassie with possible day trips for other places, home on August 11.

    They'll email me a price proposal and then I'll decide at least on dates and times for flying in and back home.
