Leeds has so much to offer!

Leeds #4We have spent many a night out in Leeds, generally drinking but this time I decided to treat my husband to a surprise night away and booked a table for dinner. In our early days of dating, we use to love going to a Teppanyaki restaurant in Birmingham. It had been many years since we had last been and after a little research I found a Teppanyaki restaurant in Leeds.

I hadn’t told Steve that we were going out for a meal or where we was going. So once we had checked in at the hotel and dropped our bags off in the room, we went for a cheeky cocktail before hitting the town. Steve had asked for a Bloody Mary, extra spicy, and boy did he get that. I quite frequently ask barmen to choose me a cocktail, I tell them the sort of spirits that I like and then they make me a drink. I have to say, he made me a fantastic drink, a Pornstar Martini. I have never had one of these before and I can tell you now, I will be drinking a lot of them in the future.

Dusseldorf 2015Altbier (German for old beer) for old alcoholics! Chris and Jen Daws invited us over to sample German hospitality as a warm up to our joint trip to Las Vegas in November. Jen is working in Germany for two years and has an apartment in Düsseldorf. Chris had the pleasure of working with Amanda a number of years back, hence how we all met. We have lots in common as individuals and couples, with a love of beer being top of the list. We flew out of Birmingham after work on Friday, meeting up with Chris in the Wetherspoon’s in the departure hall. We flew with German Wings and Birmingham to Düsseldorf is only a short hop. After a quick and easy transfer via train we arrived at Jen’s apartment to a very warm welcome…and more beer!
