In October of 2012, my Mother was diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately for us, she has been in remission and is doing well.
This past Mothers Day I wanted to do something very special for her. Twenty years has passed since she has been back to her home town; Ninove, Belgium. So I thought it would be a great time to take her back home. For two weeks we visited with family and friends and traveled throughout Belgium.
The best beer in the world comes from Belgium, and I had the opportunity to visit thirteen breweries and abbeys while I was there.
It was an amazing experience to tour Westvleteren, one of the most famous abbeys in the world. It produces the only beer ever to be ranked number one. To make this experience even better, my Moms childhood friend is friends with one of the monks of the abbey and set us up on a VIP tour. I was able to purchase five cases of beer to bring home to the states with me.
My Mom and I had the trip of a lifetime and we were happy to spend the time together.
