... AND MEET EVENTUALLY YOUR SOUL MATE ?!

The idea is to spend a great long weekend in London and join many events organized by the London Vegan Meetup Group (LVMG). And eventualy meet a partner where we could be welcomed in London whereas we could also welcome him in Paris. A friend or... a soul mate !

For the meantime, it's a project. Only the date of departure is done as well as the first meetup below. All good ideas are welcome, feel free to propose your own idea to improve our fun for our London trip, we have time to organize some great things.

Of course, if some of you can't go with us on thursday, you can join us later on friday or saturday !

NB : Everyone has to find its own "bed & breakfast" solution (i will personnaly sleep at a friend's house in the North of London)

    This Londonian weekend was great ! I've had fun, it was nice to meet Londonian vegans and it was also a good opportunity to meet some old friends.
    I must apologize because it didn't match all guys expectations, it's my part of responsibility because i didn't organised well enough the trip before our departure. Sorry !
    Never mind, i'm ready to go back again, let's all get ready for the next occasion ;) Lol
    Bye, thanks to Robb and other co organizers, hope to see you soon, we are ready to welcome you all in Paris in any occasion, music celebration in june for example :)

    To those of you going - and to those of you who might still be persuaded to come along… Here is an update to what we are doing on Friday night… a "singles" dinner at one of the best veg* restos in London. I'm looking for a venue to continue the Love Fest afterwards. Oh la la!! http://www.londonveganmeetup.co.uk/events/114017362/?a=ra1_te&eventId=114017362&action=detail

    Hi Robb, any chance of the London Vegan Meetup group coming to Paris one day ? For those who cannot go and visit you in London at the moment, it would be lovely to welcome you guys over here ! :)

    1 · April 12, 2013

      I do wish you could come with us to London, Pauline. At least you are the perfect ambassador to a vegan life in Paris!

    Who needs a place to stay during the weekend? Is anyone interested in sharing? I found this great flat in Shoreditch on Airbnb, a nicer option than staying in a hotel. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/372572

    March 26, 2013

    • Elaine

      Great! I'll send an email to the owner later. Do you prefer one over the other?

      March 28, 2013

    • Hubert

      You would like to book one of it now ? I didn't understand it, i thought you were talking about some examples of what we can get.We are at least 4 (you, i, and my two friends), but maybe others attendees would like to share the flat with us, i'm going to send an email to all attendees and ask about their wishes.

      March 28, 2013

  • Elaine

    Hello there… London Vegan Drinks has a new venue for the night of the 18th April. I will add a "+" number of people attending with me if you will kindly give notice of your attendance in advance. The new Drinks Meetup location info can be found here: http://www.londonveganmeetup.co.uk/events/109598992/confirm/

    Well, I'm already in London! But looking forward to welcoming you to our fair city. Well, maybe not "fair". ;-)

    3 · March 25, 2013

    • Hubert

      Hello Robb ! I'm very happy you've joined us for our tour in (your fairly) London ! Thank you very much, i'm looking forward to meeting you soon :)

      1 · March 25, 2013

  • Hubert

    Hello all ! Here is my timing for the Eurostar, i have already bought my ticket :
    Departure april 18th 14h43 Gare du Nord -> London St Pancras (44€) coach 15 seat 62
    Return april 21th 15h31 London -> Paris (80€) coach 15 seat 47
    I'm leaving with a friend but it would be nice if some of you could join us in the train. When you buy your ticket, you can choose your place, be careful then, choose at least coach 15 ;)
    The more you will wait to buy your ticket, the more expansive you will pay ! Don't worry if you're not sure about your availities for this long weekend, you can easily sell eurostar tickets on the web site "www.trocdestrains.fr".
    Friendly :)

    • Elaine

      Hubert, I will probably fly into Heathrow in the morning, then take the train back with everyone. Undecided as of yet.

      March 23, 2013

  • Elaine

    Hello all! Here's a bit of good news if you are hoping to meet that special veggie-loving someone in London. At dinner the other evening I asked our London counterparts how they feel about a singles mixer or speed dating and they were as enthusiastic about the idea as our Parisian group! So, spruce up and sign up. ❤ is in the air.

    1 · March 4, 2013

    • Hubert

      Yeahhhh ! Lol this is great Elaine, we are going to have so much fun during this weekend !!

      2 · March 4, 2013

  • Pauline

    I really love the idea, but sadly it won't be possible for me this time. :(

    1 · March 4, 2013

    • Hubert

      It's a pitty Pauline, we will have a thought for you in London !

      2 · March 4, 2013

    • Elaine

      Oh, Pauline! I'll miss you!

      1 · March 4, 2013

  • Hubert

    I'm looking for one or 2 co-organisers ! :D Thanks for your help, because all meetups have to be (well) prepared, it won't be so easy if we have a lot of interested members for this London trip :)

    1 · February 27, 2013

    • Hubert

      Very happy you can help me for the organization of this great event, thank you Elain ! Feel free to modify the announce, or add some new outings ;)

      2 · February 28, 2013

    • Elaine

      You've made a great start already but I'll think of a few things, I'm sure. ;)

      1 · February 28, 2013

  • Elaine

    Regarding accommodations, if we have enough people commit to going, it is possible to negotiate a group discount. I recommend sharing rooms to cut costs, if that is a concern to some, and I'll start to look into a few locations.

    February 28, 2013

    • Craig T.

      Great idea!

      1 · February 28, 2013

    • Hubert

      Great idea indeed :D On my hand, as said in the announce i'll sleep in my friend's home, but if you can find this kind of discount that would be great ;)

      1 · February 28, 2013

  • Annie

    Hello
    London sounds great for a long week end. I am interested but wont be able to join thursday. Depending on my work schedule and on cost (train+ Band B) I will join

    1 · February 27, 2013

    • Hubert

      Hello Annie, as said in the announce, you can join us in London later. About the price, we could think about renting a car and calculate the total cost for 4 or 5 people

      1 · February 28, 2013

    • Elaine

      Annie, I will look into accommodations to find the best options. Are you okay with sharing a room (female only, of course) to cut costs? I need to find out how much interest is there. Thanks!

      1 · February 28, 2013

  • Craig T.

    I love this idea! We could also include a field trip to a Whole Foods Market (aka Food Shopping Nirvana).., picnic in Hyde Park, visit Windsor...

    February 28, 2013

    • Elaine

      www.planetorganic.com - and they sell those chocolate kale chips, Hubert!

      2 · February 28, 2013

    • Hubert

      We HAVE to go there... Definitly ! :D

      2 · February 28, 2013

  • Victoria R

    I wish I could come, but it requires a visa which is not easy to get, since I need a number of documents and that includes accommodation reservation and similar :( sigh! I wish life would be a bit easier in these terms. Anyway, your trip sounds fantastic and I wish you to have lots of fun there! I'm so jealous of all who will come! :)

    February 28, 2013

    • Hubert

      What a pitty about this visa :( Thanks for your wishes, sure we will have fun out there ;)
