Camera is loaded, 24 GB (so around 1000 photos) available.

We may not be dressed to the nines though, it is going to be a hot meet!

Unfortunately we missed the whole Euro Meet in Düsseldorf yesterday. :wall: :wall:

Due to a traffic jam near Monchengladbach we came 15minutes later(at 10.45) and the group had already left the meeting point. :cry: :(

Too bad we didn’t have a phone number or else we could have asked what the location of the group was so we could join them after all… :?

Maybe we will be lucky and can participate in a next Euro Meet? :pray:

We hope you all had a good time and lots of fun… 8)
Live life on the edge but be careful not to fall off! :wink:

We had a ball! Image

Currently waiting for approval of the photos we deemed good/informative enough to show you. There are people in it, and they should have the chance to take out photos...
But soon going to share the album, which is near 80 photos. Most are of architecture though, showing where we went.

Ach shame vinkie.....
We waited and one even went back to the tram stop to see if you were there :|
Even more shame, as we were not too far away in a bistro in the habour having a coffee :wall:
Next time we have to exchange the mobile number beforehand.

Yes it was yet another wonderful Meet and it was HOT....
We nearly melted, as we had chosen the hottest weekend of this years Summer for the Meet,lol.

We went to the Media Harbour, afterwards we had lunch in a brewery. Drove to a very picturesque part of the town, Keiserswerth, enjoyed the shade of a Beergarden before returning to the city centre for an evening with dinner in a Schumachers Brewery.
There was a lot of talking, laughter and taking photos....

Here are some photos I took on the Saturday (sorry, no pics of the people right now, as everybody still needs to decide if and which photos may be published...).
