1st Stavanger International Meet-up, 06-08.03.2020 - Thanks to all the participants!!


CITY/REGION: Stavanger, Rogaland
DATE: 06-08.03.2020
TIME: 10 am
MEETUP PLACE: in front of the Cathedral

Hello hello! With so many wonderful Norwegian meetings, I hope we could have one more along the Western coast of Norway :D
You are invited to the first Postcrossing meeting in Stavanger and we hope to make it as international as possible!

The meeting will be held on the first weekend of March. Activities will be planned also based on the number of participants, but rest assured you can enjoy museums, landscapes, cosy places, colorful streets, several postcards shops and much much more!

~~~~~~

The plan is now ready! :bouncy:

FRIDAY 06.03: informal meet-up in the city for a dinner/a drink
We meet at 8.30 PM at NoodleNoodle click me
The restaurant is located right in the heart of Stavanger: Kirkegata 41, 4006 Stavanger.

SATURDAY 07.03: official meet-up!
We meet at 10 AM in front of the Cathedral.
We will first visit the Cathedral, which is going to be closed from May for a big restauration.
We will proceed down to Strandkaien, doing sightseeing and stopping at the major postcards/souvenirs shops.
After a short touch-go at the Stavanger Konserthus, we will head to Gamle Stavanger.

The postcards signing will be held from 1 PM at Kafe Go Nok, in the heart of Gamle Stavanger, a very koselig place ;)
There we can sit and relax, write cards and get something warm to drink. If hungry, there is the possibility to buy sandwiches/cakes.

On the way back to the city center, we will stop at the central post-office to send the postcards. OBS: the post-office closes early, so if you need stamps let me know, so I can revise the itinerary.

We will move, then, to the other side of the marina, Skagenkaien, for some more sightseeing, postcards shops / stationary.

We will end the day with dinner at Egon click me from 6.30 PM.

SUNDAY 08.03: short morning excursion
For those you want it/can make it, we can take a short trip to Sverd i Fjell, Hafrsfjord.
It takes about 30 min by bus from the city center.
Meet-up point will be defined on Saturday, based on the number of participants.

~~~~~~

Meet-up card? Yes!
We have two themes (click: day view and night view), showing two of the most famous spots in the city.
The cost for each postcard is only 1 NOK (0.10€)... incredible, right? :D One more reason to join us ;)

In order to make further plans, let me know if you are interested by posting here. If you have any question, do not hesitate to ask! It's not peak season yet, so flying in-out of STV airport (Sola) should be still reasonable ;)

Hope to see many faces this spring!

Quick clarification question, Hotaru: I know you say the meetup is"06-08.03.2020", but you mean Saturday, right? I'm not planning to take any time off from work for this, so I'm thinking to fly down after work on Friday evening. There won't be anything un-missable happening in the daytime on Friday? Or?

Thank you for the good question!

The meet up will happen on Saturday (all day).
If anyone flies in on Friday afternoon, I am thinking we could informally meet in the city center to get something to drink (not necessarely alcohol :D )in the evening, provided they are not tired from the trip.
On Sunday, depending on the return flights, we can arrange some minor sightseeing in the late morning or catch lunch together.

I will add this info on the front page as well :)

One suggestion for our meetup card :) What do you think about a night view from Stavanger - or would you prefer a daytime picture?

Meetupcard 2020.JPG - 66kB

Do you want a special meetup stamp as well?

I vote for a daytime shot of the cathedral :)

Interesting piece of trivia to write to the recipients of the cards: it is Norway's oldest cathedral that is still in use as a cathedral. :)

Well since you ask, I vote for a daytime view of the town or the old town :lol:

I'm always in favour of customized stamps :)

I wouldn't mind having both - the nighttime view by ScandinavianTraveler, and a daytime view. :)
