  1. Welcome to the clan. Wear your BwB ribbon with pride!
  2. I expect we ought to have a London meetup just after the last episode for those who are watching...
  3. Well, I am back! I spent the entirety of Monday recovering before travelling on Tuesday, which took a significant portion of the day. I was lucky to not have any work over the con period but suddenly had something large that needed doing just at the right time. (Well, I could do with more rest but it's welcome.) As always, I enjoyed seeing you all, old faces and new, though who has a new face these days? Only a certain Stark seems to pull that off. Anyway. The Finns did it, and I'm glad so many BwBs made it. I attended enough con and not really enough Helsinki (no sauna!) but I did take time off to re-visit some of my favourite places in the city on the Sunday night. I wish I had made some of the dinner plans but I am glad we made up for that with drinks. Now I suppose I will have to look at attending Titancon again!
  4. If it is not too late then I will join the dinner!
  5. The storm was sudden and impressive: an intense looming darkness preceded an abrupt downpour with outbreaks of thunder. Luckily, I was able to rush indoors. There is a public safety warning in place so perhaps it is not over yet. I'm at the Irish party but it's a bit dull so I might head to the city centre. Is everyone still there?
  6. Please forgive my absence from the dinner - I've just arrived at the con and am not feeling especially energetic so rather than rush downtown (having thought it was 7.30pm not 7pm...) in the rain and thunder, I'll relax here for a bit and maybe join later. Please post here if you move on. Otherwise, I'll be at the Irish party.
  7. I would love to head downtown and check out a few places while it's not too busy, and Thursday might be the best day to do this. If anyone's interested then let me know somehow. As I don't use Facebook, PM if you don't have my email address or phone number!
  8. This is a general announcement to the effect that, marginally miraculously, I am here. I hope there are plans for dinner or something!
  9. I wonder if we can find somewhere to watch Game of Thrones on Sunday night or Monday morning or whenever the US version airs in their time zone.
  10. Arriving: Weds afternon, leaving: Tues afternoon. Once we have a better overview of who is staying after (as opposed to the many who seem to be arriving before) the con then I am really keen to put together something for the Monday. I have plenty in mind - anything from the folk museum (if it is open that day) to trips outside of Helsinki.
  11. I would like to plan a little trip to the folk island: https:[email protected],24.8759251,1840m/data=!3m1!1e3
  12. Well, we should surely at least organise a proper 'official' meet-up of some sort, even if it is a pub gathering. This is the pub the 'second Thursday' Helsinki SF meet-up uses, which is definitely my favourite pub in Helsinki: I wonder if some kind soul can collate the dates we're all in the city...
  13. I have booked my flights. Arriving Wednesday around noon, leaving on Tuesday! (This is all a bit last-minute. Accommodation still not confirmed.)
  14. I may need accommodation - unsure what the status is with previously-mentioned places on the thread. To avoid confusing everyone, if anyone has anything going then please PM me with a link to the place you're staying at! Thanks.
