Mood: Still addicted to postcards!!

exclamation.gif posted on 6-2-2010 at 04:33 PM
Brussels/Bruxelles/Brussel 14 or 15 August 2010


Please check the first post as dates, times and the meeting point may change!

I have arranged a package tour to Brussels for August 2010. On Friday August 13th I will travel to Brussels where I will spend three nights at the Thon Hotel in the centre of Brussels; evening meals are not included.

On Saturday August 14th I have a morning excursion in Brussels and an afternoon visit to Antwerp. I suggest we meet on Saturday August 14th at the HOTEL THON, at about 6 pm. The main group is meeting at the Central Station at 7 pm.

The Hotel Thon is at 17 Avenue du Boulevard, 1210 Brussels, tel 02 205 15 08. The nearest Metro station is Rogier.

On Sunday August 15th I am free all day, and on Monday August 16th I will travel home, the day before my birthday:(

This holiday coincides with the famous Carpet of Flowers/Tapis de Fleurs/Bloementapijt, which occurs every two years in the middle of August. I thought this would make a great birthday treat as well as a perfect opportunity for a Postcrossing meeting!

I am suggesting a meeting on Saturday evening.

I will be bringing with me a selection of postcards from places I have visited recently, some unwanted and duplicate used cards too. It would be nice to do a little swap if several of us are interested. And I'll be bringing a load of stamps, taken off envelopes and unwanted postcards.

Maybe, I'm not sure if I have time then, because of some other plans. But Brussels is one hour drive from here and I like the city. :)

So you can put me on the list but I might not be able to make it. If so, I let you know as soon as possible.

Toucans and ferro.....how nice that you are organizing a meeting and that you will meet each other :D.
Too bad that it's a but too expensive for me to come to NL this year. Otherwise it would have been able for me to meet my two postcard penpals, too.....:(

Thanks for the kind words, Andrea. We'll be thinking of you!

I'll certainly be looking for the best places to buy postcards, so I appreciate you coming, Lotty! And I'm really excited at the possibility of meeting a supermoderator!!! YAY:cool:

Jetske...you're right. It would have been easy for us to share your "C5" car :P. My mom already booked her ticket to Taiwan for Jul/Aug, so we are definitely not visiting NL this year..too bad!

You can put me on the list as well, with a question mark since I haven't planned my summerholiday yet. If I can make it I will stay overnight as well. Will pick a hotel later. :)

I'd like to come too, just to have more Belgians in Belgium than people from Holland ;)
I don't know if Ferro speaks Dutch, thaugh...
Can you just let us know the station where we'll meet? There are 3 main stations in Brussels, but the Central Station will be best if we're going to the Grand Place.
