We've kinda sorta been talking about doing a Belgium meetup eventually sometime maybe. Is September 22nd too close to the Utrecht meetup? I'm going to Leuven for a university-sponsored event September 19-21, so it'd be convenient for me. Leuven is close to Gent (fisticuffs) and other Belgium places. Does this sound like fun to anyone else?

Yes, either Friday 21st or Saturday 22nd seems manageable to me.

I'm busy until 5.30pm on the 21st, so Saturday is the only full day I'd have. ....Unless Veg_Eric and others want to come down for dinner and a hostel slumber party somewhere til Saturday adventures with Bun & co.?

I'm just waiting how things will develop. I pass Bun's town anyway, so I can pick her up on my way to Belgium...either on friday afternoon or early Saturday morning...
Leuven seems to have limited options for vegan food, while Gent seems to have more.

Well, shoot. I'm down in Belgium all the time (like literally every other week) but I have to work in Amsterdam on Friday and Saturday. I'll actually be leaving Belgium the morning of Friday the 21st. Once a date and time is set, I can try to see if I can get a snipperdag (not likely at this point) or maybe get someone to switch a day (or both) with me, but I suspect I'll have to miss this one.

If no one can join you in a hostel slumber party, I can come to Leuven on friday (I work in Brussels so that's even closer). We can have dinner at Loving Hut (if you don't object to that) and then go to Ghent. You can sleep here if you're not allergic to kitties! Then we can meet up with the others on saturday.

Ooooh! Interesting. I went to Leuven while I was studying abroad (went to the Stella brewery). I will consider this.

Agreed that a city with vegan-ventures is more fun. fisticuffs, where do you think we should meet? Ghent? Thanks for inviting me over. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to cats and buns. Is there a room in your place where the cat doesn't go, or where s/he goes less? RandiJM, are you still interested if we have adventures outside of Leuven?

^ Yes probably moreso, because Leuven was boring (sorry!) :)

I'm only going there for a workshop at the university - no need to apologize to me!

Woo!, meetup.

I had forgotten I am hanging out with a couple of Belgians that day because we haven't seen each other in ages and this is one of the few weekends they'll be make it to my town. Sunday would be okay for me?

Not for me - I want to be home Sunday am at the latest because I have to turn around and immediately go on another trip (vacation! finally not work!).

I booked my ticket to Leuven today!
Tomorrow Veg.Eric and I are going to decide on a hostel for Friday night.

I might be able to come on Saturday! It looks like I might be able to get someone to work for me on Friday and Saturday, and maybe even Sunday (which would mean I wouldn't have to worry about the last train on Saturday).

Yay, more meetups! September is going to be a super busy month for me though, so I don't know whether I'll make it to Belgium.

I will be in Utrecht on the 8th and I've just arranged to do a little Miyoko style vegan cheese workshop next sunday (september 2nd) at the Magneet Festival in Amsterdam together with PoesiePie (exited and nervous!).

When I've had a little more time to experiment with my Miyoko cheeses and make a few well ripened ones, you're all welcome for a cheese party at our place :-)

September is crazy busy for me, too. I've got a day-long meeting in Zeist on Sunday, or else I would have loved to surprise you at the cheeze making workshop. (But I'll happily come over for cheeze tasting once you're ready for us!)

So! The plan. Veg Eric and I have a hostel in Gent on Friday night, the 21st (http://www.ecohostel.be/en/home-en/). We told them we'd check in after 7. My arrival depends on the end of the workshop in Leuven, but I think I can be there by 7pm. Lepelaar is waiting to find out from work whether she can join us. Fisticuffs, does dinner together sound good?

Friday night dinner somewhere?
Saturday, post-breakfast adventures?

Is anyone else thinking of joining us?

i'm still considering, though i guess i need to make a decision pretty soon. i've never traveled to a non-English-speaking country by myself before!

Aw, come on! You won't really be by yourself - all of us will be there.
And there are really, really cute English accents in Belgium.

well i'll be getting there on my own! (Mr Ketchup still needs a new passport, and he isn't very fond of traveling anyway.) and i'm one of those crassholes who doesn't speak any other languages and i don't want to be the jerk who makes people speak English (i think someone mentioned something similar in another thread).

on the other hand, all sorts of speculoos wonders await me, right?
