So today is the final day!!! My first Tb Meet up.

I was excited today I will get to know all Tb's in person!!! With some Tb's i came in contact via Internet and we wrote a lot but today i will be face to face with the person on the other side from the computer!!! How excited!!!

I was browsing all Hotels at Khao San Road and thought the Rikka Inn looks very nice. Later i talked with Jeff about the hotel and he told me that he and some other Tb's wanted to stay there so i also booked my room at Rikka Inn.

My mom took me to the hotel because she wanted to know where i was staying and on my way to the Hotel i saw all the Tb's!!! It was funny because they didn't saw me.

I saw Ket & Bennie coming out from the Hotel with a map and Jeff & Ruby at the reception desk and i was standing next to them!!! But they all didn't saw me ;) Lucky for me because i was with my mum and i didin't wanted to say "Hey Hi im Rose from Tb and thats my mum!!!" After a short walk at the Khao San Road my mum went back home and i went back to the Hotel.At the entrance I saw Jeff again but this time he saw and recognized me too.  I saw in his face that he was suprised about my height ;) (You have to know I'm 1.77 m!!!) We talked a bit and decided to meet us later at the pool.

Later at the pool i lay on a sunlounger and I heard Jeff's voice. He was speaking with Bennie and Ruby about me! Jeff said: "Later a girl will come to join us at the pool too, she is also from Tb and she is so tall!!!" Haha it was so funny cause i stood up and said: "Hey you mean me?"

After our Pool meet up we went outside to eat something and then Ket and Renate came back from their shopping trip.

I guess Ket's first thoughts when he saw me were: Damn! Is she taller than me!!!!

It was time to join the meet up with Natty and the other TBs! We were 6 people and the only thing we knew was that the meet-up will take place at the Waterside Restaurant, but we didn't know exactly where it was situated.  It's a long and funny story but after an hour in a cab and 400 Baht per cap we found the Restaurant. Too bad that we past the restaurant 3 times!!! We all didn't saw the sign and we didn't know how it looks like from the outside!!!

So we were 9 people at the meet up (from the left to the right side)

Jeff..... jefrois, Ruby..... 2win, Bennie..... BMatital, Me/Rose..... Kju, Renate..... agentret,

Ket..... Ketmeister, Natty..... Funkyweekend1974, Carla & Ron..... klaartje1968

We had a great dinner with delicious Thai food like Tom Yum Goong and Gaeng kiew wan. Haha about the dish Gang kiew wan i have a funny story ;) It's a green curry soup with normaly chicken or beef you eat it with rice.

Meet up dinner at Waterside Restaurant
Bennie and Jeff ask me "What is it" and I guess hhmm it looks diffrent but i answerd "thats chicken". Later i take a second look of it and it wasn't chicken it was fishballs!!! So they ate fishballs and they guess it were chicken!!! Haha

After our funny dinner we went back to Khao San Road for some drinks ;) Our fist stop was The roof later we went to a more quiet place near Khao San.

So that was my first meet up look at my pics. Pictures say more than 1000 words!!!

It is very exciting to meet other TB's in person!! My first "meet up" was with a girl from Germany who was living here in the US with her American husband. We all are now very good friends and will visit them in Germany next spring (They moved to back Germany last year)
