That sounds like a great idea. Thanks for offering to do this. You can count on two of us, Marsha (friscogrl) and me. Perhaps dinner before the concert?

I don't know yet where we will be staying in Gothenburg. Any suggestions?

Thank you so much, courage. It is generous people like you, Amrei and Bob offering suggestions that make this forum so very special. I will send you a PM.

Hi Arlene,

last time we were in Gothenburg, we stayed at a hotel, which we booked through the ferry company. (Stena Line) It was beautifully situated at the Harbour Front with a marvellous view, especially from their restaurant. I think it was Novotel, and it was not expensive. It is a bit far from the centre, though.
Last year Stena Line offered Scandic Hotel in the city to fair prices. When you book the ferry from Gothenburg to Frederikshavn to go to Odense ;-) ;-) you can book a package ...

Ah, Amrei, would that I could. But it is not feasible to go to the Odense concert. Not to worry though, a while back I drove through your beautiful country of Denmark and visited the wonderful city of Odense including the fantastic Hans Christian Andersen Museum. We stayed in B&B's the whole trip to avoid the pesky VAT tax. My friend was a better navigator, so I did most of the driving. We rented a gear shift car and that was an adventure in itself. I hadn't driven a gear shift car in many years. I was okay going forward, but kept forgetting the clutch in reverse. That grinding noise was chilling. After a while I only parked in places where I could pull forward. :lol:

Thanks for thinking of me with your travel tip.

:lol: Haha, Arlene ... so you should have seen me in Singapore. Trying to change gear all the time I put the car in parking or even worse R condition - no nice sounds either ;-) :oops: :(
Even worse, they drive in the wrong side there and all instruments have changed place, so sweating me ordered the children to be totally quiet and only shout LEFT!!! when I drove in the right side (They feared so much for their life, that they obeyed immediately :o :o :shock: ). And then I always turned on the window-washer, when I wanted to turn on the yellow blink. NIGHTMARE .... but after a few hours I learned :roll: :razz:

Pity that you won´t come to Denmark, I would have loved to meet you ...

Have a look at this then: http://www.novotel.se/

And don´t book hotels in the Internet in Scandinavia. You get far better prices, when you call them and everybody speaks English.

Amrei, great stories about your adventures on the "wrong side". :lol: This isn't the thread for it, but one day I will have to tell you about almost getting killed by a double decker bus in London many years ago, when I was there "to see The Queen", or was it still "The King." :D

I love your signature line
2010: hopefully ... Hamburg, Berlin ...
I shall also await any such announcement ... hopefully. Who knows, we may actually get to meet each other in person...on the RIGHT side of the road. :D

Courage, my husband & I will be in Gothenburg & Odense, & we are definitely interested in meetups; I think before the concerts would work best for us, if that works for everyone else. We don't know where anything is in those cities, so I thank you for your willingness & your efforts in booking a place.

We will also be in Stockholm, but I think lots of people will be in Krakow at that time (by the time we got around to thinking about Krakow, it was already booked up; we weren't sure if we could do both Krakow & concerts anyway - maybe I should ask about meetup in Stockholm in a different thread, though?)

Editing: We will go to Gothenburg on 8/10; if others are going to be around, maybe a meetup the day before the concert (8/11) would be nice. . .

@Liamberney. Thank you for your very kind words.

Marsha (friscogrl) and I arrive in Gothenburg from Krakow on Tuesday, August 10 and will be staying for three nights. Perhaps we can touch base there even before the planned meet-up. I notice that Holydove will also arrive on the 10th.

And many thanks again to Courage for arranging the Gothenburg meet-up.

btw. Your web link (relax@thecottage...) under your profile does not connect.

Hi Arlene

We're looking forward to the meet up and hope more people can make it (hoping Jarkko might be at this, but Helsinki is just a couple of days before). I have not had time to do any homework, literally just booked flights and the hotel (Scandic crown).

Thanks for pointing out the error on my web link - I shall edit when I work out how to do it!
