Well, youâ€™re probably exhausted from the last two entries if youâ€™re eyeballs and will to live made it to the end of the text so Iâ€™ll keep this one brief and leave the words and many, many images to the more capable hands of the wonderful TravBuddy crew that I had the good fortune to hook up with in Leiden, my FIRST EVER TB MEETUP!
As I roll into Leiden on the train I am lucky to have my good TB pal Patricia (pms70) primed and ready to spot the â€śred haired little guy with the butterfly t-shirt onâ€ť and thankfully sheâ€™s on the platform ready to great me and take me under her wing.
Anna (Dolfijn) the host had done a fantastic job on this event not only in the sheer organisational nightmare that she overcame to make things run as smooth as could have been hoped for, but also in the venues and events that she had all ready to go for us to help the good times roll.
I loved meeting everbodyâ€¦ ALL 45 ODD OR SO!!! Quite an overwhelming number for little olâ€™ me. Everyone seemed so nice and friendly and all that gooey stuff. I was chuffed to bits to meet some of my slightly longer term TB pal contacts (Patricia and Keiko) and thrilled to meet so many great new personalties in my own understated way (Anna, Eric, Wendy, Mehmet, Jo, Louise, John, Alex, Bas, Joost, Devika to name but a T INY portion!).
They all will likely have written in far greater depth and eloquence than I on the subject so I suggest for much hilarity and more photos you check their blogs too : pms70; KeikoCreative ; stelarmod ; dolfijn ; wendyveer ; bas2107 ; Belgium_tom ; jos-nijenhuis ; biedjee ; alex-b ; kelvincheah523 ; bluesilver84 ; devika1985 ; cvanzoen ; markbeg ; ketmeister ; ape ; joost1976 ; gclaessen ; London student ; 1morespicy; mypictures4u and many, many othersâ€¦
