I have to say, that we personally had good luck with meeting locations. For W-EBTM in Cyprus. We were just about one click away to book flights to Madrid, but we decided to visit forum first and see, where winter meeting will be. And we have been talking about visiting Cyprus before, so it was very easy choice to book flights there. And again for S-EBTM we were talking about Belgium and August and then meeting will be there, so it will be again good reason to join the meeting. And about dates, end of August is much better for us than beginning, so it just can't be better :D

We plan to do dot hunting by public transport, which means we fly to one place, take a bus, train, etc. and head to another airport to fly back, and of course meeting in the middle. Didn't book any tickets yet, but we checked prices and have a plan for that. So, please add brewerhki and Lizbeth + 1 to "I will come" -list. PS. What is the age limit for beer in Belgium?

Wine and beer is 16, anything stronger is 18.

A tip for when you are going to use the train in Belgium: buy a rail pass. 10 single trips for € 76. Officially you are not allowed to break your trip, but I have never seen that being enforced. So one trip is Oostende to Virton and you get out once in every dot and it only costs € 7,60. :mrgreen:
And a one-day pass for delijn (bus in Vlaanderen) is only € 5,00
A dayticket for the train in Luxembourg is also not expensive: € 4,00.

BTW: Im coming too.

For those who want to visit the Netherlands too: You're not allowed to drink any alcohol (so including wine and beer) before your 18th birthday (remember to bring your ID if you're younger as 25 years: in case of doubt you won't be served if you can't show your ID).
This also concerns shopping alcoholic drinks.

So I guess our son will prefer love Belgium than Netherlands then ;) Anyway, The Netherlands is not included on our plan this time (we already spent 7 hours in Schiphol on the way to Lisbon meeting)

^^ In my experience, no one really inforces that age limit in Belgium, at least in cafés and restaurants: since I was 12 I've had a beer whenever I went to Koekoek in Oostende (Ostend) to drink with my half roasted chicken (it's delicious, by the way).

If you order a glass of beer and give it to your children no one is going to notice — and even if someone does notice, no one will find it appalling ;) Beer is part of Belgian culture, so everyone can enjoy it (responsibly). :D

And expect not to be served as friendly as before. At least it happend to me in :flag-nl: Enschede a couple of times, when I was shopping at the Albert Heijn in the city. Maybe because I'm German :? ??

Back to topic: I'd like to be there, but cannot say whether I'll be able be there, so it's a "perhaps" at the moment.

Straying heavily off-topic: Why would a German buy his alcohol in Holland, when the Dutch themselves go to Germany because it is way cheaper over there?

For me, those are better dates than Winter meeting, so I'm going to try to be there!!

I'm also looking if I try to visit Luxemburg or jump to Germany or to the Netherlands

Oh, this is really a pity - but I also cannot yet say yes or no. Sometimes things are beyond our control.

I used to participate EBTM's quite often (Amsterdam, Berlin, Turku) but lately the timetables have not suited me at all. This time I have another meeting in Tallinn, Estonia. Better luck with the timing next time. Have a nice meeting!
