(Northern) European cities

Update,[masked]

HI ALL!  I don't know if I'm the perfect host - I haven't even been to a meet-up yet let alone hosted one - but I'll do my best!  I'm going to update the meeting location on the map to a cafe right by the train station (it's called Boulevard and opens at 0900 in case you're really early) since I presume many people will arrive by train.  I'll be there by 0930 and will put my camera on the table so hopefully you won't have trouble finding me.

There will be a LOT of people in the city for Carnaval so there should be some great opportunities to take pictures of people but the streets will be very busy so architecture shots might not be so easy to get. If anyone is looking to see something specific please let me know. Also, if you know you'll be late send me a note and I'll give you my phone number to contact us when you arrive.

If you need any other info feel free to contact me. Otherwise, I'll see you Saturday!

Jessica

 

P.S. Please change your RSVP to No if you won't be coming. I want to have a good count so that we know when everyone has arrived.

_________________________

SO YOU KNOW, WE'RE STILL ON!!!

I might not be able to make it though but I think Jessica will be a perfect host to guide you around.

 

 

------------------------------------------

Update,[masked]

Just cancelled the RED BULL Crushed Ice meetup.

If ppl are still interested in checking out Maastricht I'll keep this event on the calendar. In case you're not interested or can't make it place update your status.

Please answer the question re. ride shares as well.

------------------------------------------

Original msg. Karno

I've just posted a meetup which is going to take place in Maastricht, so why not combine it with this meetup suggestion.

Those who are not interested in the Red Bull Crashed Ice event can do some shooting in Maastricht and surrounding area's. But maybe we could combine ride shares and get good deals on stays.

For now these meetups will be separate events, when things are starting to take shape I might combine it to keep things organized.

 

Please change your RSVP accordingly:

Interested in only Maastricht : YES

Not interested this time : NO

Please answer the questions given as well, this makes organizing things a lot easier.

    Hi All, I came to Boulevard at 10:50, had been waiting for 20 minutes, nobody showed up. So I had to go to the event alone. How come? Did you change the meeting place or I came too late?

      You must have just missed us. We were there until about 1045. Sorry you had to go alone. I hope you enjoyed it!

    Just a quick question...the location for this event says Vrijtfof in Maastricht but the little pin on the Google Map shows a different location. Where exactly are we meeting?

    • Karno

      ONLY TWO??? :@
      At least you had a good day, I wonder what happened to all the others. Think I need to make a list of the no shows!

    February 7, 2013

  • Samaa

    Hello all,
    Are we still going? if so shall we start 12 a.m instead of 10 a.m, because it is a really long way to Mastricht; or alternatively could somebody maybe (Jessica) let us know cheap accomodation.
    Cheers,

      I don't know any accomodation since I live so close but it's Carnaval so you might have trouble finding something cheap. There will be thousands of people in town for the weekend. You could always call me when you get in and find out where we are. Or, if people want to change the time it's okay with me. I don't know how these things usually go.

      February 7, 2013

  • rhiannon

    No for Feb 9th Maastricht... maybe next time...

    February 4, 2013

    Guys I will start planning and book a place this weekend, so please confirm if you're in or out, thanx ;-)

    -Long weekend photography road trips to nearby cities starting Jan 2013 - would anybody be interested?-

    Depends on witch city and the payment method

    January 25, 2013

  • erik

    Northern European cities is indeed maybe too ambitious? But some not-so-known little gems in NL/BE it is a great idea!

      Would love to join for a short trip. I have never been in Breda for example.

      January 18, 2013

    • Mutlu

      I do road trips at weekends or long weekends to relatively close by places. For instance Luxembourg for a weekend, Berlin for a long weekend or Gent as daytrip. If we can come together 3-4 people, then it is doable. You can contact me to make a plan together

    I just checked for budget flights from Amsterdam. Actually Transavia has no northbound flight at all. Norwegian.no has sort of cheap-ish tickets to Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm, but not really cheaper than KLM, running around EUR 120 for a roundtrip for a January weekend. To be honest with you, especially in the winter, you can also aim with a EUR 200 great South European or Central European cities with Transavia where the weather/light may be more photography friendly. I generally find Transavia to be a cheaper option that the Thalys trains. I bet you cannot be much cheaper if you just aim at Belgium or Luxemburg. On the other hand, a Transavia roundtrip to Barcelona in January costs EUR 69 without luggage fees, and I guess it is a rather photography-friendly destination.

    • Mattymorris

      I'd be up for Berlin, that would be cool...Berlin is fantastic

      December 13, 2012

  • Mutlu

    I do already trips for this and sightseeing purposes. Depending on the size of the group we do it with one or two cars. Let me know if you are interested to make up a group of 4-5 and we can hit road at a weekend, share the fuel etc. We have done this before for Luxembourg, Gent+Brugge. they were nice

    November 21, 2012

  • Mattymorris

    Sounds great! Love city trips and photography so this is right up my street.

    November 19, 2012

    I have another idea. In Limburg, there is a town named Lottum. It has a rose festival in July and there is a rose route that would be a bit much to walk: it's 35 kilometers :) It would be great to go there though net year to photograph the flowers and surroundings.

    would love to join! I have one-day ticket that allows me to take any train within NL on weekend, expires late Jan. Looking forward to meeting you guys..Googlegroup idea sounds good by the way

    November 7, 2012

  • Ana

    my suggestion would be to also keep an eye on discount deals like groupon travel deals....work out much cheaper and yes some hidden places within NL itself which normally dont come up on tourist or popular places like Giethoorn, Bergen...

      will come up with a few suggestions soon .

  • Karno

    Why use a 3rd discussion group if everyone can get updates from the meetup already? We could also use the Discussion 'Message Board' for suggestions for this event. IMHO I think we should stick to one location, and not Meetup, FB ánd a 3rd group ...

    Ok will set up a googlegroup for discussing the photography trips as suggested by Gabor -

    Liking the idea, but indeed... it all still depends on pretty much everything.

    I would be interested in joining and I'm sharing the comments by Nicole, rhiannon, Marée and others. Haven't you thought about setting up a Yahoo!Groups or GoogleGroups for discussing the details. That would probably be easier than just posting everything here.

    I'm interested, pls keep me updated.

    October 21, 2012

  • rhiannon

    Liking the idea. I now have the 40% card as well for travel in the NL which takes up to 3 people with me. Maybe we should start off by arranging a trip to Eindhoven so George can show us all round!!!

    1 · October 21, 2012

  • Nicole

    interested, starting next year for sure. Won't be able to make everyone i think, but those with sufficient advance warning so I can plan in the weekend.

    October 21, 2012

  • Marée

    Sounds good, we'd have to think about how we would make this accessible to people. Maybe be traveling together, buying tickets/sharing cars, that sort of thing. And of course this would also apply to hotels: if we book as a pack, we may get discounts.
    I hope this will be possible for me since I have a serious schedule from next Monday on that will last for months. But I shall keep an eye on this conversation.
    I also like the interesting Dutch cities ideas.

    Yes, very interestd, but will have work into time constraints..

    October 21, 2012

  • Lina H.

    It sounds fun. I'll keep checking back.

    October 21, 2012

  • Karno

    Next to European city's we could also do some day trips to interesting city's in Holland. eg: Maastricht, Groningen, Den Bosch Breda ...

    October 21, 2012

  • Karno

    Interested for sure, maybe we can make it a monthly recurring event ;-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
