Oslo, Saturday February 9th, 2019 at Frognerseteren


CITY/REGION: Oslo, Norway
DATE & TIME: February 9th, 11am
MEETUP PLACE: Nationaltheatret subway station or Frognerseteren, Oslo
(see below)

First weekend meetup of 2019! :)

This meetup will be in honor of a Belgian guest, Mamiielariie. She will also have a friend from Sweden with her (not sure if Postcrosser :D) so this will be a pretty international meetup.

To make this a little more special, we will go to Frognerseteren this time and have our meetup in their caf, Seterstua. They don't take reservations so we will just have to show up and hope for the best, but it's pretty roomy. :) They serve sandwiches, cakes, hot lunch meals and various hot drinks (they are famous for their hot chocolate). Mostly typically Norwegian food.

This place also has really amazing views of the city.

Not sure yet whether we will meet at the caf or whether it will be easier to meet downtown and take the subway up together. Watch this space. :) Of course you are welcome to meet us up there if you prefer. Look for our sign with the Postcrossing logo which we'll hopefully remember to put up at the table. Otherwise a bunch of postcards and pens and various supplies are usually a giveaway.

Bring postcards to write, to swap or to show off. :) Or just come and hang out with other Postcrossers. Welcome!

If you're planning to attend, it's great if you can let us know in this thread. :)

Anyone is free to come and go whenever they like, it's not mandatory to stay for the whole meetup. :) And no problem if you show up late. Although then you will probably have a whole pile of stuff to sign dumped on you ;)

KAS: It's your job to promote this on Facebook as usual. :D

I always think there should be meetup cards, but I guess I don't have a vote this time since I don't know if I'll be there :lol:

@LeishaCamden and others, there's a big discount available right now at vistaprint. Order by Jan 11 and get 50 % off. Just sayin'. ;)

You may already be aware of this, but in case not: mila_norge just pointed out on Facebook that Feb 9 is Holmenkollmarsjen. It's going to be crowded up there.

Oh, wow, I didn't know that! Yes, it's going to be crowded. Unfortunately the cafe doesn't take reservations so we will just have to take our chances :) I think we should try being there at 11am which is when it opens.

I think it's still a good plan to go up there though, our foreign friends will get the chance to see a very typically Norwegian event :-) Any disagreements??

FYI: I was able to stop by KAS on Wednesday and pick up some of the new generic meetup cards she's ordered. They don't have the date or anything but they do have the Postcrossing logo and "Oslo, Norway" and the picture shows Holmenkollen ski jump, so they are actually quite well suited to this meetup :) I will have 70 cards with me and they will cost 4 NOK each.

Nice, and I think I'll need some of the postcards.

Beeing there at 11 am when they open would be the best to have chances to get a table.

We should take this one, IMO. Those of us who are going from downtown can meet by the Peacock fountain outside Nationaltheatret station at 10am, and we can all go together from there.

FYI, this is my best attempt at a photo of the meetup card, the shiny finish makes it impossible to scan and difficult to photograph.

Yes, the Nationaltheateret station is the right place to meet up. Just go to the nearby fountain called "The Peacock". I guess it's not water in it now, but in the summer, it's quite obvious why it's called "the peacock".

No, the train to Karlstad does not stop at Nathionaltheateret station. It goes from Oslo S, the central station.

For your information: The Holmenkollmarsjen is that day, so it will be good to be there when they open, ad it might be very crowded.

Unfortunately I cant attend as I have to work with the Holmenkollmarsjen. But have fun!
