Hey gang! Suvanki and I (Gillybob) have now arrived in Bergamo (along with fellow Oop North Crew member Alyf1961) and bumped in to Waaleweiner, LoriPori, Benson35 and alucas so far!
We welcome all our VAs, fellow members and EurMeet attendees to join in this thread and share the fun and sun (yes, it's sunny!) - we'll all try to keep updates going here!
Missing all our absent VTers - the world grows smaller and we'll see you around somewhere!
Leics, poor lass, is still beavering away in the UK and joins us on Friday - till then, we'll be sure to enjoy her share of gelato and wine!!!
Getting on the plane in 45 minutes! 16 hours of flights for a 4 day turn around, but worth it :)
Too bad that I'm missing The Euromeet this year :((((. Have lots of fun & sun for me as well!
Looking forward to your, and everyone's arrival!!! The weather is very pleasant here and looks to be good with some thunder storms predicted tomorrow - we shall see what reality brings!!!
Eh...we never get rain in LA, so I don't mind having some :)
Saw you and two other girls with you today Gill at papa givannixx you were too far away to shout,I was at a restaurant across the road.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrhmph (*wanders off feeling hard done-by*)....
The word you were looking for was GROM!!!!
Heading off at the crack of dawn tomorrow . Still have to pack though .......
Be thinking of you all.....
Anybody seen Goodfish (Kate)? Tell her and hubby I said hi
Count us (Swanet and me)in. We just arrived.
Time to get some sleep.
I am arriving with Kirsty (KShess) as a VA, already watched a video that Hansi has taken.
Have loads of fun.
Have a great meet everyone.
Have a beer for me!!
So near (less than 200 km) and so far as still one day before I can reach you but looooooooooking forward to it!!
We have to wait until saturday morning to get there! have fun everybody and do not eat all the GROM gelato! :-)
I cannot guarantee that there will be Grom gelato left by Saturday! ;-)
We had a good, relaxed evening yesterday before getting down to the business of today. Good night's sleep and just making preparations for the day ahead. Breakfast in a bit where I'm sure we'll see a few VT people - seems like there's a few around already!
Apparently you were spotted at papa givanni's haha..
I'm jealous, I really am.
After the simply wonderful time I had at last years Euromeet gig(s) I know everyone is going to have a blast. I can only guess at the amount of work that has gone into this, I have the privelege of knowing a lot of the people attending and I am completely confident it will be a resounding success.
There is just one little thing niggling at the back of my brain, such as it is. Last year G announced Bergamo for this year during the Macedonia meet. Will there be a similar announcement this year I wonder? Has he got a little surprise tucked away? Anybody (outside the Mothership at least) taking bets on next year's venue? Still, all in good time as they say. Everyone who is going have a great time and I shall be with you in spirit.
