Wonderful guys & gals: take out your planners, your favourite writing gear (and some financial paper to start saving up for it!):
FILOFAX & GILLIO MEETUP WEEKEND
in ANTWERP, BELGIUM
from Friday, November 29th ’till Sunday, December 1st.
I’m still in the middle of all of the arrangements, but we will be entertaining ourselves with following activities:
Friday: evening dinner in the wonderful center of Antwerp, some drinks and sightseeing, AND some special guests…!
Saturday: put on your most comfy shoes for some serious SHOPPING throughout Antwerp & Wijnegem Shopping Center (home of… GOLDPEN by Gillio, of course!)
Lunch & dinner I’m still organising… Depending on how many of you are joining us 🙂
There will be plenty of time to talk, eat and drink, get to know eachother and exchange ideas!
On Sunday, shops are closed here (yes, I know, absolutely terrible!) but depending on the people that are still here on Sunday, I have some activities planned you will read more about in future posts! (Arrangement still to be made…)
If all else fails, there will be plenty of time to discover the city of Antwerp, the harbour, the old center, the wonderful museums, etc.
Hotel arrangements: there are plenty of small hotels and B&B’s in Antwerp, but in my experience, good value for money is IBIS Antwerpen Centrum, where you can stay two nights as from €130. If you share a room that would only be about €65 for each person… A bargain, right? 😉
Transport: Antwerp Central Station is easiest by train; if you are flying in, you can fly to Brussels (Zaventem), Charleroi, and even Eindhoven (the Netherlands) which is only an hour from Antwerp. Check what the cheapest flights are, and let me know, I might be able to pick you up at the airport!
Now. Who’s with me?
