Hall of Worlds meeting 2016
« on: January 12, 2016, 09:10:12 PM »



With great pleasure we present the first Hall of Worlds meet-up in a decade:
Rotterdam
March 5th, 2016


Yes, that's right! This is no joke, this is serious! Open your agenda, save the date, saddle up your family with your offspring, book tickets and pack your bags!

We're going to one of Europe's most exhilarating cities that hit the top ten cities lists of the Rough Guide (2015) and Lonely Planet (2016): Rotterdam! Otherwise known as Rotjeknor, Roffa, Rotown, Manhattan at the Maas, or simply: the Gate to Europe. Bombed by Nazi-Germany in WW II, Rotterdam arose from her ashes like a phoenix, becoming the multicultural place to be in Europe with 174 nationalities on a population of 1.7 million.

For more tourism information, check a.o.: Wikipedia, Rotterdam Tourism or Lonely Planet.

Saturday, 5th of March.



How to get there?

Looking forward to see you guys and gals again!

If anyone needs any further information, like which European highways lead to Rotterdam or some other detail thing, let me know.

That said....

What are you scared of?

By the way if people want to come but feel they have not been a member for a long time and so forth, don't worry about that and sign up.

I doubt all of you are serial killers, but there's at least one.

I think I missed my moment to be a serial killer, so best bet is on one of the other brothers.

Smart money is on Syrion. :D

One month left. Did everyone book their tickets?

I guess it's time we start thinking about WHAT we're going to do! :)

I'd love to come, never having been to the Netherlands before but alas I'm broke. So sadly I wont be coming :(

Sorry Darkon, I wasn't ignoring your PM maliciously, but real life and family stuff is getting on top of me.

Indeed!

Before Saturday I will put a bit of a program together. I'd say we start at central station. Easiest landmark out there.

Just leaves the starting time. Preferences?

Alright, 10 AM in front of the Rotterdam Central Station it is!

Weather forecasts for tomorrow are reasonable, especially in the morning.

It appears pictures of me slipped through. Really enjoyed myself though.

Glad to hear you had a good time. Now then, I say it's time to start planning the next one. :)

By the way, because some people had problems seeing all the uploaded pictures under the milestone event on the facebook page. I reduced the number of pictures there to four and reuploaded all the pictures in a photo album.

Really enjoyed my time in the Netherlands, particularly meeting with the guys. Good sights seen, good beers heard, good times enjoyed, indeed! Looking forward to the next time. :)
