International Postcrossing Meeting Dinant 1st of June 2014


1st International Postcrossing Meeting Dinant - Sunday 1st of June 2014

Hello Postcrossers,

Here is an update for the program:

- For those people arriving on Saturday and wanting to meet already or go for a drink or a bite, u2u me and we will arrange a meeting point.

Program for Sunday:

11.00 Meeting in front of the church Collégiale Notre Dame, address Place Reine Astrid 5500 Dinant

11.30 Possibility to have a small snack - sandwich. Possibility to buy postcards and stamps in the souvenir shop at Place Reine Astrid.

12.30 Visit of the citadel (entree price 8€ per person, this ticket includes the visit of the Citadel and the téléferique ride)
In the citadel there is also a souvenir shop where they sell postcards, the postcards here are cheaper than in the city centre (they have the same cards as the shops in the centre)

15.00 We will be having a drink in the café next to the Citadel, this is a café where we can sit outside if the weather allows or inside when it rains. This café is having a marvellous view on the city of Dinant and surroundnings.
For those people who need stamps, I will bring stamps for both Europe and the world which you can buy with me.

18.30 Dinner in a restaurant - Le Pavillon de Hong Kong (Chinese restaurant) which offers good food for small prices. As the second of June is my birthday, I will be offering a birthday drink in this restaurant.




For more information about the city Dinant, visit the website:
http://www.dinant.be/nl/toerisme

Dinant is not that far away, here some train schedules:
- from Brussels : there is a train at 9.12 at Brussels North which arrives at 10.39 in Dinant (or at 10.12 arriving in Dinant at 11.39 for those who want to catch up later) 13,80 € for returnticket by train (weekendbiljet)

Travelling time by car:
- From Antwerpen: 1 hour 30 minutes
- From Brussels: 1 hour
- From Gent: 1 hour 30 minutes

- From Breda: 2 hours


If you are interested to come, please answer with 'sure' (if you are sure you will come :)) or 'maybe' (if you are not yet sure whether you will be able to attend).

For people coming to Dinant by car, we can maybe arrange carpooling, so you can split the fuel cost.

I hope to see a big list of people who will attend this meeting!

Hi Tchoupidouwha, that is great you are coming!!
Most of the attenders will be dutch speaking, so the language will not be a problem. Let's hope we can convince also a lot of french speaking postcrossers to attend this meeting!

Hello everybody


I'm not new on Postcrossing (already 3 years) but am new on the forum and have never done any meeting.
I was not available for the last meeting in Antwerp, in Dutch ;)
I am French speaking but... am trying to exercize in dutch so it would be great to attend the meeting in Dinant.
My only problem is that I'm coming by train and the last one is leaving Dinant at 21h20... but maybe it is not a problem :spin:
By the way, I'm from Brussels :love:

Put me in the "maybe" list for the time being...

Hi FBChacha58,

It would be great if you could come, you will certainly not be the only french speaking participant. As the host of this meeting I will certainly organize the meeting bilingual :)

Hello,
I changed from maybe to sure, it will be my first experience!

Tchoupidouwha, I'm also in a group on FB but didn't see your name (I'm the only belgian...), so, I will also put the link on the page as there are some french speaking from Germany, The Netherlands and of course France and hope some of them may join us :) .
Here is the link to the group : https://www.facebook.com/groups/423948777640838/

Hello!

Greetings from Indonesia :)
If only I could extend my stay in Belgium (leaving 31st afternoon), it'd be unforgettable experience to join this event!

Sorry for interrupting and you can ignore this post but all the best for this International Postcrossing Meeting ;)

Dinant Meeting


Oh how I envy all of you, I wish I could be there. I lived in Belgium for three years and I loved every minute of it. Dinant is such a beautiful city, I really enjoyed the visits I made there.

Enjoy your meeting!
