Name's Birgitte, and I'm from Denmark.
I was first introduced to snooker through my boyfriend, who was a pool player at the time. Actually holds the junior record in straight pool.
After a few years together he decided that he'd rather play snooker instead, and competed in a couple of Danish championships before having to quit, because his job didn't allow him enough time for proper practice.
I've been following snooker on eurosport ever since, and have eventually surpassed him in knowledge of the rules
Other than snooker, I'm a great lover of beer and whisky, and am actually a member of the local whisky and beer guild.
Being a member of this guild, which I joined in 2003 with my dad, we go on trips to breweries and distilleries (I'd like to say all over the world, but so far they have all been in Europe). Hopefully with our 10 year anniversary next year, we might finally go a bit further. There have been a few trips to Germany and Belgium, as they are of course key beer countries, and to Scotland and Ireland for the whisky/whiskey.
Anything else you'd like to know, just ask and I'll try to answer your questions.
Oh, and thanks to everyone for being so welcoming
