Franconian Beer Message Board

Living there vs Visiting ( was British Faults)

It could well be because, even just 16 years ago, foreign visitors were rare. Beer has taken off worldwide to such an extent that beer tourism is a ‘thing’, even in these far flung villages. Who knows, there are many factors. 

I think the main point is that what I shared was my experience, parts of which were backed up by Nick and my girlfriend. They aren’t empirical, but they also are not up for debate. It’s not about being right or wrong, nor am I saying that because I live here I know better than anyone else, definitely not. It’s just that I’ve been a tourist here, so I try to see both sides. 

Ive just got home from having another bike stolen in bamberg. It was cheap (and locked) but it disappeared none the less. There’s an experience you’re unlikely to have as a tourist, but it still happens.
