Dear friends, old and new,

I hope you are all doing great. I wonder will there ever by a Powow on Friday before the conference starts? I am arriving on June 6th afternoon, so if any of you is coming a bit earlier like me, we can arrange a group and do sightseeing together. Please let us plan well in advance so that we have an excellent plan.

I hope to see you all soon and dont forget to join me in my workshop, as I promise you a lot of very useful information.

I look forward to seeing you all.

I'll be there :-) Apr 25, 2012

Ciao Sam!!
Looking forward to seeing you again in a few weeks

I will be arriving on june 8th (morning) and leaving on June 12th (evening).

There are many wonderful things to see in Barcelona. My favourite:

Parc Güell
Barri Gòtic
Casa Batlló
Els quatre gats


I was thinking of going to Parc Güell on Friday 8th and leaving the rest for Monday and Tuesday.

However, if there are other plans for group sightseeing I will be more than happy to change my schedule!

Hi Sam, Hi Daniela May 2, 2012

I too look forward to seeing you again in Barcelona.

I´m also planning to arrive 06/07 June, depending on what flights I can get. So I would definitely be up for some pre-conference activities like sightseeing, powwow, etc.

On a different note, re the dinner on Saturday evening. I heard a few folks saying that, as this time the dinner isn´t included in the conference fee, they wouldn´t go, as they don´t consider it good value for money. I´m just repeating what I´ve heard. What are your thoughts on this? Have you signed up for the gala dinner yet?

See you in Barcelona very soon

Manuela

Good to hear from you again May 2, 2012

Hey, glad you are coming Manuela,

I am also arriving on the 6th so we can really plan what we can do. Austria Khan is also arriving on the 6th. Let us make a plan and I am open for suggestions. I believe it is better if we all stick together and attend the Gala dinner as it would not make any sense if you have separate groups, as indeed it is the gathering that makes a real pleasure for all of us. Please contact me by email and let us take it from there.

Sam

Friday afternoon May 3, 2012

Hi all, Hi Sam and Daniela,

I'm arriving around 12:00 on Friday, and I'd be interested to join you on Friday afternoon before the powwow, if any. Alternatively, I'd be also interested in visiting the Sagrada Familia on that day, as I'll have to leave on Monday morning already. I also plan to attend the Gala Dinner.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Axelle

I would say that translating is not banking

Me too May 3, 2012

As I'm arriving on Friday morning and leaving on Monday evening, I was hoping to do some sightseeing on Friday afternoon or Monday - or both, ideally with someone or people who are familiar with Barcelona (and that there would be a Powwow or similar on the Friday evening, as there usually is).

I know that with travel, accommodation and conference fees, these events are not exactly cheap, but I have to applaud the organisers for setting the costs at a very manageable level - and the same applies to the gala dinner, so I shall certainly be giving it my support.

Good point May 4, 2012

Sergei and also thanks for your thoughts on the dinner, Russell.

I too think that once you decide to attend a conference, it´s pretty clear that it´s going to cost you money. But I think the benefits (and the fun) far outweigh the costs.

Sightseeing on Friday around 1 - 2pm May 4, 2012

Hello everyone,

I am reeeeeeally excited to be able to come to the conference (and certainly enjoying the gala with you all). Also as I am arriving at around 10am on Friday, I was hoping to do some sightseeing with the ones already present.

Please count me in. I am based somewhere in La Ramblas, so that would be an easy meeting point for me as I do not know Barcelona. I have been there once (24 hour trip) and fell in love with the city though, it was long time ago and also I did not manage to see much. So any kind of sightseeing would be great for me.

Thanks and see you soon.

Eva

Great May 4, 2012

Hi Eva,

That sounds great. I shall be there from the 6th of June, so let us have a detailed plan please so that I can visit places on the 6th and 7th, other than the ones that shall be included on Friday. I am open to suggestions and I believe we have to consult a colleague from Spain, or do our own research.

Keep me posted.

Friday May 5, 2012

Hi all,

I am arriving Thursday evening the 7th, and my only day to sightsee is Friday. I have reserved tickets (together with Paula Ribeiro, and possibly Austria Kann) to tour the Sagrada Familia from 10 - 11 in the morning on Friday, the 8th. If anyone else wants to do this, please go to the website and book your tickets online, it's easy and means you can avoid having to stand in line with the general public to get in.

http://www.sagradafamilia.cat/ and click the 'buy your tickets online' banner on the right side.

I would like to go to Parc Guell in the afternoon, which I went to for the last time in 1984, and was one of my favorite things in Barcelona.

Anyways, looking forward to seeing everyone!

Allison

Count me in May 8, 2012

I will also be arriving Thursday late afternoon so will be happy to join in the fun on Thursday evening and Friday. Have to leave Monday morning though. Good idea (Allison) to book the Sagrada Familia in advance, thanks for the tip. The last time I was in Barcelona a few years ago there were long queues to get in - and that was in December. Imagine what it will be like when it's finished!
