PingaPingviini and a friend are coming to Finland to visit (from Canada) for a few days and they'd love to meet up with other Postsrossers while here. So, in honour of them being here, there will be a meeting on Saturday, May 21st.

If anyone has any ideas of what we should do or see on this day, please let me/us know. One definite request from the visiting duo has been to go to the Moomin museum.

If you have any questions, please let me know!
Welcome and I hope to see you there, rowan6

Lyhyesti:
PingaPingviini ja hänen ystävänsä (Kanadasta) ovat tulossa Suomeen pari päivää ja he haluaisivat tavatta muitta PC-ers. Lauantaina (21.5) on tapaaminen heidän takia.

Jos joku on idea mitä me voimme tehdä silloin, kerro vaan. Tytöt ehdottamasti haluavat mennä Muuminmuseo.

Who is coming:
rowan6 (US/FI)
PingaPingviini (and friend) (CA)
erjamaarit (FI)
Fairytale89 (FI)
Nina Caramelita (BE)
Vendela (FI)
Suzie (FI)

maybe coming:
Mingshu (FI)
Pihka (FI)
marzze (FI)

The plan so far:
1. Moomin valley (7e) + moomin store
2. Visit a couple of postcard stores near that end of town
3. Pyynikin viewing tower (2e to go up the tower) for a coffee/tea/soda and a munkki
4. Laukontori or Tammelantori*
5. some more postcard shops or anything else you might want to see.
6. Something to eat at Bella Roma + writing postcards + chatting.
7. ?

If anyone needs or wants to contact me here is my phone and email:
I've removed my phone & email.

*Tammelantorin chilipäivä (21.5.2011 klo 6-14) - Chili-day @ Tammelantori might be fun to check out.

I don't know yet, but if I'm in Tampere I will try and be there! :)

I remember trading coins with Pinga a loooong time ago. I think it was one of the first trades I did in the forum. :D

And it would be fun to meet fellow Finns (and Rowan! ;)) again/for the first time too!

I've updated the list.

Any one have a preference of where to eat? I think as we get closer to the date I should reserve a place to eat so we can guarantee a seat. :)

I will try my best to get to the meeting :)

Last time (when we had guests from Germany and Holland) we ate in Bella Roma, I love their food (italian) and service was good too. Perhaps our guests could tell us what kind of food they would like to eat? Maybe black sausage with lingonberry jam in Tammelan Tori ;) :P

No! No, black sausage for me. But Tammelantori or Laukontori is definitely one of the places I was thinking we could go to. And I agree that Bella Roma would be a good and easy place to go to. Their tables are big enough that we can write cards there too!

I've just sent a rough outline of an itinerary to Pinga and I'll post it here in the next day or so after we've discussed it some.

Everyone think good weather thoughts for that day!

Great to see you there, Nina!

So, I have made a basic plan of what we could do on Saturday for the meeting, but then I learned there is the "Museoiden Yö 20.5.2011" the night before. One of the museums in this event is the Moomin museum (12+ museums for 6e from 18.24).
I have talked to Pingapingviini and we are going to go to to that museum and others on Friday. But we can still meet there, in case someone else still wants to go Moomin Valley.

This is my "plan" so far.

1. Moomin valley (7e) + moomin store
2. Visit a couple of postcard stores near that end of town
3. Pyynikin viewing tower (2e to go up the tower) for a coffee/tea/soda and a munkki
4. Laukontori or Tammelantori (although, Tammelantori is on the other side of town...)
5. some more postcard shops or anything else you might want to see.
6. Something to eat at Bella Roma + writing postcards + chatting.
7. ?

What do you think? Plans can change, this is not the law. :D
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like it's going to be a great day ^^

1. Moomin museum is not really a must for me. Been there several times already... but ermmmm... I must say... Moomin store is just toooo nice to skip (dangerous tho :-p)

3. :thumbup: Great view from Pyynikin torni imo ^^ (bonus for me is that I have nice memories from that place, first time I met my in laws, we had coffee & munkki there ^^)

4. Since Tammelantori is on the other side, might be more convenient to go to Laukontori? And at the same time you can visit Kehräsaari? And who says Kehräsaari, says Joulupuu :cool:

4/5 Koskikeskus is also nearby then, for those who want to check out some other shops/stuff?

Kysymys:
Tuleko joku autolla? Ajattelin, että jos meillä oli 2 autoa se olisi helpompaa mennä Pyynikintorinille ja Tammelantorille. Jos ei kukan muut tule autolla, sitten aioin jättää oma autoni kotona.

Oops! Sorry about that, Fairytale89. :embarassed: I could have sworn that I saw in your profile that you were from Poland. My bad. I have now changed it to FI, for Finland.
