would you like to see the w(h)ine list?
It's time. Time to spread the news about the Second Whiney Expat Bloggers in Germany Meet-Up to be held in Bonn on November 18-19, 2006. More details, suggested activities (did someone mention bowling??) and a list of those who are interested in attending can be perused at J's blog Germany Doesn't Suck. Just leave him a comment if you have any ideas, suggestions or questions.
And remember, any and all expats from anywhere in the general vicinity are invited. You don't have to live in Germany and you don't have to have a blog. Being a bit whiney would be a real plus, though, because that's what the weekend is all about, right? A chance to let off some steam with people who "get it".
I attended the first meet-up in Marburg last October and had a grand time. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a very outgoing, social person in real life, so getting out on my own can be quite the challenge sometimes. But I certainly did enjoy meeting other expat bloggers in Marburg and have visited with several new-found friends since then. Not a bad apple in the bunch, I tell you.
So think about it. Even if you're new to Germany. Even if you're really, really shy. Even if the thought of getting on a DB train scares the bejeezus out of you. You can do it. You SHOULD do it.
You won't regret it. I sure didn't.
And speaking of no regrets, take a look at these happy expats that I found over at Ms. Mac's. Too funny.
