Some of you who have been to one of the get togethers probably have an advantage here but...
I was wondering how many fellow TP members have you met in person?
So far I haven´t met any in person but I have plans to meet up with four this summer... Hopefully our plans will work out.
I have friends who I told about the website and have since joined but besides that noone........ maybe we should try to organise get togethers on the anniversary of the website, and then whatever country you're in you just meet up other TP members there. It could be turned into an annual event, it could be addictive or a competition, like how many different countries have you been to at the time of the anniversary......also for loan travellers it would be good to know that at a certain point every year there is a guaranteed meeting..........
I wonder has anyone met up with someone that turned into a good friendship or a bad experience.........
I've not met any that i'm aware of, although tentative plans/ideas to meet a few depending on my arse being catapulted in the right direction. There's certainly a few otehrs would be interested to meet.
Nikki - you mean as in the spontaneous romance thread?!
Also, sorry, but your answer cracked me up (not taking the p'ss out of you in any way shape of form - this is just how my warped brain worked) , with your comment "..also for loan travellers.."
I have a couple of brilliant pictures in my head now about lowanong travelelrs to other people, and this is definitely going to be part of the grand "umentary and candles" plan!!!
okay okay you caught me out , i've got dollars going through my thread , we should make many 'umentarys' on everything to do with 'TP',,...... we could travel the world and not have to worry so much about budgets.......heheheh...as for the romance , yeah well that and friendships, once i met someone when i was away who i thought was really cool but when we got back we just didn't get along........as for taking the piss , no harm done anyway...........I'm used to it I support Lazio and I hang around with some of the most diehard Roma and Juve supporters so I'm used to verbal abuse.........
lol, looks like the "umentary and candles" thread knows no boundries! I know two people off of here, but none that I met through here, no I guess if we're getting technical, I haven't met any TP members.
I've met three members so far from TP.... Well, maybe five depending on how you look at things... I met Peter, Sam, and Kaffgurl, as well as Peter's wife and Sam's (almost) wife who I don't think are members of the site, but I say they count anyways
I do have plans to meet up with others this summer assuming that I can take all the trips I am planning on taking this year...
The other thing is, I have noticed a lot of TPers who are looking to move to the UK in the near future... I am thinking.. when the time draws closer to me moving over there, that I will rent a larger place than I really need and invite other TPers who are moving to the UK to come share the place with me.
Just a thought right now, but it could be fun.
A friend recommended me this site but she is not a TP member. I met her on the internet and we've been in touch for years but we haven't met in person! She's going to Thailand this beginning of July but I cannot go and see her then... money rules....
So my answer is: NONE.
I never mmet anyone here and i miss one - Peter and hien on July!
None, but awaiting to see soon.
None but hoping very soon.
