After considertly sayng, I would not organiz a meet up if they would tortur me, I decided to take the plonge and listen to 'alxb.' Sayng that I could do it and will hav the ability to hold travbuddys to enjoy there stay in 'antwerp.' I knew I could not do this, with out 'kornifalig', who is the lover of 'antwerp' him selv. He loves the city, if it would kil him. We tryd to figur out, how to get them here and how to let them see the city. Although 'antwerp' is not that big, we managed to hav good weathr when travbuddys were here.
I remembr thuersday night, when 'skydiver' arrived at the central station and 'kornifalig' went to pick him up. I don't remembr what I was doing that day, but I was late, again. I had 3 hours sleep the night befor and was yawng the whol time, good first impression on a travbuddy.
I normaly don't like it so much, but I seem to be enjoyng it.
We went for drinks at a place that 'kornifalig' considers to be one of the greatest. We went to sit outside, drank some wine and orderd 'skydiver' the best beers. I managed to keep my eyes open for a whil, but thought it was best to cal a cap. The driver would not let me go to 'kornifalig' castl for 10 euro, so I got back to the café, after being away for 2 minuts. What happnd? My wineglac was empty, haha. The bastards drank my wine, while I left for 2 minuts. They could at least wait, until they saw me driving away in the cab. It's a good thing they payed for it. Later, a good friend 'hannelore', came to join us. We sat down for a whil, talked about things that I can't remembr, becaus I was sleepng with my eyes open. After one hour, we eventualy went to his castl.
Smokng, bannd out side from a restaurant, I can't believ it.
For freakng sake, 6 am in the morning and the darn alarm go off. I did not hear it, but 'skydiver' did. Since I had 4 hours of sleep (you should know, I'm used to havng 10 hours), I was still in drea mland, while 'skydiver' had to get out of his sleepngbag to turn of the alarm and was complainng about it. Talkng about being so lazie, haha. I think he tryd to wak me, but I told him, I still had 20 minuts of sleep. I got back to sleep and 20 minuts later the darn alarm go back of, haha. I'm a terribl wak up person, so 'skydiver' went back out of his sleepng back, ordering me to wak up. I got up, not in such a good, mood. Went to take the tram, then anothr tram, then the train to 'brussls' and then the train to the 'airport.' I was there around 8 am, I think.
I'm so happy.
I found my self wandering for about one hour, drinkng some cofee, going out for smoks and tryng to stay awak. It was 9 am, when I finaly saw 'jamie.' Haha, I think I was still in the morningspirt, becaus one of the frst things I say to him was 'you are so late, I could hav slept for one hour more.' I felt a littl bad after that, becaus it was costums fault. It was so great to finaly meet him. Then we had to wait for 'jeff', who would arriv around 9 am. Yes, that became 10 am, so we decided to order cofee and go on travbuddy, since the airport has intrnt. Haha, to figur out how to use it, is another thing. Ok, finaly 'jeff' arrived and took train to 'brussls.' We wanderd the city for close to 2 hours and went back to 'antwerp', since travbuddys were arrivng and askng to pick them up.
We hav the same, mind.
I think we were in the city around 2 pm. We waitd for travbuddy 'wendy', who could not find her way. Wendy, went to the hostel with 'devi' and 'daniel', I think. Then 'alxb', calld me up to say he was arrivng around 4 pm and 'bennie' who was sayng he would arriv there too and I had to pick him up. Since he was in traffc, I had to wait the whol time, so I went to pick up 'alxb' first. We had some cofee and smoks, which is the best, haha. Finaly, 'bennie' arrived. I was gettng stressd out at the moment, becaus every one was askng to pick them up, sayng they were late or I had to go to other places for othr peopl. Then I realizd why I did not wantd to organiz a meet up in the frst place, it's freakng stress the whol time. Then every one came to the city to hav drinks and then I got anothr call, some othr travbuddys arrivd.
He is hot.
Ok, I left my drink, went to pick them up and brought to the group. I don't know what we did next, but after that, we went to 'quick' to hav dinnr. Since I work in 'quick', I could arrang to get a free burger for every one. It was not the bst meal, but it's almost free. We were suppos to meet 'victoria' and 'nick', but did not hear from them, so we decided to search a club. We went to the 'vuile was' and it was much fun. Then I had to pick up 'dave', who managed to find 'antwerp', all by him self. After a late night, we went to 'kornifalig' castl to crash.
It's 11 am and every one is freakng gettng up already. We sayd we would meet the othr travbuddys around 1 pm in the city, so we had to wak up. We all took a showr and went to the city, we were late, again.
Devi, wendy, marloes, bart, daniel and anna were already havng a drink. We joined them, after 'jamie' and I bought our selvs a cofee. Then finaly 'ratu' arrivd and the 3 'dutch' guys, so great to finaly meet them. We all stayd for drinks, until the 'english' peopl (lori, warren, louis, sophi and robbo) arrivd in 'antwerp.' I met up with them, I can't remembr where and brought them 'kornifalig' castl to get there stuf there. There the g irls decided they rathr sleep in a hotel, since the place was going to be crowdd. We left the apartmnt, took the tram and were supose to meet up for dinner around 8 pm. We were late, again. At this point, I was realy gettng anoyed of being late all the time. It's a good thing, dinnr was not until 8.45 pm, which made us being late, not so bad.
Dinner was at 'amadeus', where you could hav ribs for the whol night. Since this 'smokng' law is already in progress for a long time, every time we had to get our smoknglevel back up, we had to go out side, which we calld our smokngarea. We finaly payd (it was not that much) and went to a plac where 'kornifalig' is a lot. We arrivd, lookd around and saw no one, haha. The place was, you could say, empty. Haha, with out any one tellng me, some travbuddys left the plac and went some where else. At that point, I was even gettng more anoyed of peopl disapearng, so I calld them up in a fury way 'where the f are you.' Haha, the victim was 'robbo', since I had his numbr. I'm so sorry for being, so mad, again. We left the empty place and got back to the 'vuile was.
Wendy, jamie and me in the boat.
' I had the mentl, break down of organizng at that moment and thought I would text 'lauro' for some advic, since he had the same thing in 'dusseldorf.' We dancd all night and got our selvs drunk enough.
This day is a littl blurry to me. I remembr we went to the fair, to do things there. We had these car things, to bump in to and took a boatride. I remembr I went to drop of 'dave', who gav the bst birth day presnt, I could imagn. I left my bag and got back after droppng of 'dave' and saw no one there. I was so mad, haha. They freakng took my bag and left. I could not cal them to ask where they were, so I was searchng for a good 10 minuts, to find them. I think 'kornifalig' could see, I was upset, haha. Ok, we ate some thing, did some attractions and drank a littl.
This pictur show that I'm tannd, haha.
Then we got back to the city and orderd 'pizza' at 'kornifalig' castl. Yes, you can imagn, they forget the 'pizza', I orderd, haha. We got so wastd that night, haha.
The next morning, we had to wak up so early, becaus 'jamie' had to get his flight and 'ashish' his bus. I decided to go, to see 'brugge' that day with a friend. I could take picturs, since Jamie fixd it. I droppd of 'jamie' at the airport, which was not so good, since I did not wantd him to leav and took the train, to 'brugge.'
It was a great week end, a littl stressd and I will not organiz again, but I would not want to chang one thing. I had the bst time and I realiz these peopl mean so much to. It's so wondrful to meet peopl from every where, but I could nevr imagn them to be, all so great.
