Welcome, ladies! Sep 9, 2011

Susan and Paula.icon_smile.gif

I might be able to suggest places (studios/apartments) to stay where I live. It is all a matter of planning a bit in advance.

Good day, Susan. Your May suggestion sounds good to me. Like I said before via Twitter, May is actually an excellent month (not as hot, but already hot enough in terms of temperature).

I will change the date at your request or once we all reach an agreement about the date.

Saludos

May 19 or 26 2012 Sep 11, 2011

Hi Ivette! I actually meant the weekend of May 19 - that's the (4-day) holiday weekend here in Germany anyway. Actually the next weekend is too but only 3 days. But that's also a possibility. I'm open to other suggestions too of course. It's just that on May 11 I'll probably be in Budapest for the MemoQ Fest.icon_smile.gif

Dates in May Sep 13, 2011

Hi ladies,
Concerning a powwow date in May, we should first check up when the famous powwow in Berlin will take place - the "translators' AGM" is something I really want to go to. As far as I know, it's not yet on the powwow list. Let me ask the organizer Steffen and come back to you as soon as possible.

May means Berlin Sep 14, 2011

The 4 days weekend in May is already booked by Steffen (Powwow at May 19). And before there is the Frankfurt Powwow at the end of March, so April sounds like a good date.

Earlier in April? Sep 14, 2011

Hi and welcome all new ladies.

Just wondering if Easter weekend would be a possibility (I think it is on the weekend of April 8 next year).

The only thing is that there might be a chance of some rain, you never know. If you want a completely "rainless" possibility, the other choices would be any of the summer months or even September (but the latter tends not to be so good for a lot of people who start off a lot of freelancing activity during this month).

To be continued....

Enrique Sep 15, 2011

Hola Enrique, bienvenido.icon_smile.gif

You are absolutely right, Costa del Sol is looong.

I live in the Benalmádena-Fuengirola area, so this will be most likely the area I had in mind.

Hope we can finally reach an agreement about the date.

Muchos saludos

April 14? Sep 15, 2011

Hi Everyone! How nice that this is starting to take shape.icon_smile.gif Erik and Anette are right, the Berlin powwow is on May 19 and I imagine a lot of us will want to attend that. As for Easter weekend, it's not a bad idea from a holiday perspective but the flights are already very expensive, more that I would want to pay anyway. What would everyone think about April 14? That weekend looks good in terms of flight prices, and it's far enough in advance of the Berlin powwow that people don't end up with back-to-back events. Anyway that's what I would suggest! What do you guys think?

Susan/website about Spanish beer Sep 15, 2011

Another good suggestion, Susan.

[Editing my previous message to change the link previously provided.]

On a different note, just found a website in which you can see some of the best Spanish beers:

http://www.clubdarwin.net/seccion/ingredientes/las-10-mejores-cervezas-espanolas

I am actually no beer connoisseur at all (but don't tell Erik), but I usually prefer Mahou, so it is interesting to learn that there is also a dark Mahou, which I think I have never tried.

Hola icon_smile.gif

Contacted Erik recently to see if we can finally decide on a date, but it looks like April will most likely be the month.

Hope to see you then (but feel free to network, as we live relatively close).

Saludos!

New final date Oct 26, 2011

Hi again,

I finally managed to discuss the definite date with the main beer monster (smile...), Erik.

And the winner is: Saturday, April 21, 2012

I hope the end of the world is after that (since some people keep talking about the end of the world coming in 2012). It'd be nice to have some laughs and nice cold beers before this world goes kaput.icon_wink.gif

Anyway, jokes aside, I hope this date change suits everyone.

Susan Starling commented to me that it'd be fun to have a "pre-powwow" on the previous Friday evening, in Málaga city, where there are some really fun places to have some tapas and beer. More info. about that from Susan, when the date is closer.

About the powwow itself, depending on the weather, my idea is to have it where I live (Benalmádena beach area), a kind of barbecue afternoon with grilled meat, salads and lots of beer. It all depends on the weather, of course (hopefully there will be no rain on that weekend). Let's play it by ear.

Hope everyone is having a great final quarter of the year.

Un abrazo,

Ivette

P.S.: corrected the date on the powwow title, but wrote the wrong day on this message, sorry. It's Saturday April 21, 2012. o_O

!Que idea más simpatica, Ivette! Nov 3, 2011

Lovely idea.
I'd love to see you, Anette, Erik, Susan and Paula again. Plus new faces.
On the sunny side of life.
Barbecue & beer. Yummy.

Además: Highly motivating to brush up my poor Spanish.

Un abrazo fuerte,
Estefanía

What a nice surprise, Estefanía!

So happy that you'll be joining us.

Y por supuesto que te ayudaremos a mejorar tu español.icon_wink.gif

But there might as well be a chance for a big powwow in Panama (maybe in 2013, when they will have the Spanish Royal Academy conference there). Let's see where we are then.icon_smile.gif

Un abrazo fuerte también para ti,

Ivette
