Spain / Paco / Granada / May 2018
« on: October 04, 2017, 23:25:07 »
Who will be in?

Paco just writes:

"Granada is a great meeting point. Many interesting things very close, Alhambra, Gardens, Cathedral, Albaycin-Sacromonte, Sierra Nevada, the beach is 1 hour away...tapas come free with a beer for less than 3 euros :)
 
   I´ll love for a NG get together to happen in Spain for sure.
   I´m bury pretty much the year round but so are all of you. Taking in consideration time frame and the best season to come to Spain I will suggest the month of May."

And who wants help make it happen?
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Potentially yes - I'd love it, but subject to dates, duration and agreement with wife as I already have a trip to Skye planned for late April.

Running by the river this morning I though about our discussion at Jakov's house about settling in the countryside (near Granada in this case) with a bunch of rental cars to be able to move all into the same hotel / huts / venue and be able to spend the time from breakfast to night together PLUS more than one option of adventure per day like we did in Scotland?

For me the week after would be much better: May 12 to 19.

I added a poll
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Unfortunately (as always) I cannot participate.  Hope you enjoy the meeting.

Maybe I'm looking forward to a small but intimate NG event here in Tokyo instead.  ;)

Frank, failed to mention his idea of friends chipping in and buying a plane ticket for Akira to join us :)

Oh, that's so nice of you!  Please save the money until I will be able to travel through Europe from Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Denmark, Finland and Norway!

Jakov, I'm planning to visit these countries during my SECOND visit.  ;)

It is impossible to visit all these areas at once!  And I want to visit North, Central and South Americas as well as South Africa!   8)

Now I am confused...

Tom, thanks for the reminder.  I should have mention as Benelux countries.  :)

FWIW, I'll make sure I haven't forgot to mention India and other Asian countries!
