Last Saturday the Haddock family attended the 2nd
Annual Whiney Expat Blogger Meet Up in Bonn
. All the usual suspects
were there from last year and quite a few new faces were present as well. Unfortunately we couldn’t stay for too long as we had to travel onward to the Odenwald to celebrate the 81st
Birthday of my father in law.
It was great to see everyone at the meet up, and this year the English contingent increased by 100% as D, the boyfriend from Heather hails from London. J acted as tour guide and took us on a little tour of the city centre which I found quite charming with its pedestrian streets and open markets. We took a look in the cathedral and then headed off to an old German restaurant (where Beethoven apparently had dinner, got drunk, fornicated etc) for lunch. Unfortunately after lunch we had to say our goodbyes and then drive south. Hopefully we can attend for longer next year and I can then get to chat to everyone for longer.
The Juniorette enjoyed the meet up and was quite shy at times, which believe me is quite unusual for her. Tomorrow evening she will be in Bremen for the Champions League game between Werder Bremen & Chelsea. She will be one of the Line Up Kids that walk out onto the field with the players before the game. If she gets to walk out with Tim Borowski her evening will be complete as he is her favourite player. The game is televised by Sky Sports in the UK and Premiere in Germany.
