hey, hey Everyone, it was papparazzi night, "AGAIN" tons of great pics, at the meet up, it was such a great night meeting up with lots of "couchbuddies" hehe (new term that Karina came up with) hehe. Anyway it was such a great night last night, meeting up with amazing people. After meeting up at tgi Friday's with Karina and Laura, all four of us went to the Charlotte TB meet up, we had such a great time in Ian's car while we were getting there, taking pictures and talking about our meet ups, that's when couchsurfing came up, we were all talking and laughing about experiences we had, when it suddenly came out, Karina wants a "couchbuddy" hehee (applications will be receive via email, hehe), somehow she made a combo out of both sites, it was pretty funny.
the Charlotte bunch.
i Met Wade, what a great cool dude, it was awesome to finally meet with him, he is from Raleigh Durham, the capital city for North Carolina, also met Ian from Virginia, also a long time since we wanted to meet up, yesterday was so great to see them both. Karina and Laura it was so good to see karina again, had such a great time with her and Eric on my last meet up, and Laura another great new travBuddy. Mario and James, it was so cooll to finally meet them too, the place James picked for the meet up was great, we had such a good time, up stairs, downstairs, at the restaurant, and the patio too, thank you James for organizing the meet up, and dont worry the idea of the meet up, was in my head way before, this was just the great oportunity to have one.
hey Wade and Mario.
Meeting up with Marie was cool, altho she is new to the site, we started messaging since she become a member and the charlotte TB meet and greet was the perfect place to meet up, we dance to the rythm of "SALSA" she is not scared of dancing in the middle of the side walk with me, drop her purse to the floor and get on it, im the latin but she showed me some great moves. haha we got lost looking for marie's car like 3 levels of parking spaces, walking and walking i felt like 15 floors, hehe, and we walked and walked till we found the car, mean while we took some amazing pictures and laughs in each place we went, it was so much fun to ride back to Ian's car, all 6 of us in Marie's car, hehe, talking about carpooling, hehe.
met up with Ian from Virginia a few hours before the TravBuddy meet and greet in Charlotte, he drove us to a T.G.I friday's near the University city area, we had such a good time there, had a beer while we waited for Karina and Laura to meet us there, while there a conversation about "do you call it UpTown Charlotte, or DownTown Charlotte" involved a few people sitting at the bar and of course the bartenders too, hehe, it was a great start, for a great night!
