make up yer mind, will ya?
Over at J's the votes are pouring in for the location of the 2008 Whiney Expat Blogger Meet-Up. Six cities were nominated and now, in the second round, it's time to choose the one you'd like to have a fabulous time in. The only rule is that you shouldn't vote for the city you live in - I'm not really sure why this is, maybe J can tell us.
Here they are in alphabetical order...
...and here according to how many votes each has gotten so far and who voted for which city
Wiesbaden – 6 (Rositta, G in Berlin, Belinda, Martina, Erin, AmiO)
Bremen – 5 ***(Claire, Mausi, CN Heidelberg, Scott, Jul)
Berlin – 3 (Ian, Dixie, Headbang8)
Nuremburg – 3 (Adam, J, ChristinaG)
Frankfurt – 1 (Andrea)
Hamburg - 1 (Nate)
Now this can change at any time and I might update it a bit before my next post. You'll notice that Wiesbaden(!?) has taken the lead at the moment. Completely unexplainable, but, hey, if enough bloggers want Wiesbaden, then Wiesbaden it shall be. For the time being my humble vote still goes to Bremen. Let someone else sit on a train for 4 hours this year, I say. But you know I'm gonna be there whatever location we choose.
If you want to have your say and not have some random whiney bloggers make up your mind for you, go put in your vote before J makes the final decree.
After the location is announced, it will be time to work on a specific date. September and October are looking good since the weather tends to be a little iffy in November and it gets dark early leaving less time for sightseeing.
Once again to refresh your memories:
(See? Wiesbaden isn't even on there!)
P.S. If you feel like it, post a link to J's on your own blog so we can get as many bloggers as possible to attend.
***UPDATE: Three more votes at J's blog now put Bremen in the lead! It's not over yet, folks.
