So... are we still going to have the heersching Xanten meeting (without Drew :cry: )?
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

I´d say we wait until next year, when Drew will be among us maniacs.

Still, having some larger Dutch/German forum meeting this summer would be nice IMO, especially for those people (like me :P) who are not going to any festivals.

And where exactly it should take place.

I´d suggest we save Xanten for the meeting with Drew.

Well guys, I conquered Ireland, England, Scotland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. I have more than 6000 photos to sort through once I get back into LA and have some free time. A shame I couldn't get together with any of you on this trip, but next year's trip will definitely be on mainland Europe and will include at least a few festivals. :D

Such a shame we were not traveling the same continent though... I miss you sooooo much !
Did you do any couchsurfing btw ?

Well, it wasn't cheap, but it was definitely worth it! Hopefully my photos will be convincing once I get them sorted and processed :)

Yeah, I really wish we could've met up somehow, but it just wasn't to be this time around.

I did couchsurf in Limerick, Ireland and it was really cool, but the person I was supposed to couchsurf with in Reykjavik bailed on me semi-last-minute, so I stayed at a hostel on the Laugavegur which ended up being the best traveling experience of my life. :D

Yep, I had an amazing time! :D

Switzerland is definitely planned for the next trip. I need to get through the rest of Germany and France, so Switzerland should be easily integrated into that itinerary.
