    lol - I am only coming to Oslo when someone finally finds it fit to give me a Nobel Prize. Sorry...

    But it'd be great to have you join, Ms. Milloway :D - though I am not sure Brughes would be convenient in that case...

    Good points, yup =)

    Yeah I'd thought about a (long) weekend, main days being friday (evening) and saturday (for being nice and interested tourists) and sunday (breakfast and leave)
    Depending on how long everyone has time, it can of course vary

    (oh weekend is not a must, but a can- though it seems most likely to work)

    yup keeping it open
    Oh and Brügge would be fine for me as well, though that'd mean longer travel time...


    I think that would be a logistical masterpiece somehow...

    Edit: with Mem and Are in as well, it tends to Frankfurt/Munich/ Berlin again if I am correct?!

    As to Brughes - it's not very near an airport, tbh. Brussles/Zaventhem would be closest, but it'd still be an hour and a half by train from there.

    By contrast, there's a Ferry coming in about 10km away, at Zeebrugge :)

    Well, I really wouldn't mind the UK. As I'm hopefully moving back there this summer, anyway. ^^

    Well, it remains to be seen whether we will succeed in prying you from that tower of yours....

    But Brughes, awesome as it may be, is not very convenient, traveling from Oslo. I mean, I'm not even sure there's a direct flight between the two ^_^


    Amsterdam or Frankfurt/Mainz would work better for getting Rapunzel down, I'm afraid...

    Well, that was strangely sensible. (Okay, it's Tur, you tend to be one of the sensible ones.) Good point. I've never seen an Oslo -Brughes flight...

    That's because nobody uses planes in Norway. They use longboats!

    Hmmm - these're all people you know - yet never met. That last bit is something easily mended. Just meet up.

    Besides, I like odd adventures. There's so many uncertain factors that it's bound to end up interesting and totally not what you expect. It's the sort of experience that makes life worth it for me :D

    Why would you want to meet? Because meeting people is fun! Humans are social animals, it's a good thing for us.

    Teehee >.>

    Well, I meant Brussels. But, apparently, there are direct flights between Oslo and Brussels. Come to think of it, it's a but unsensible not to have a direct flight between a European capital and the Capital of Europe. >.>

    I do, do that with my current friends, but as I said I enjoy meeting new people :)

    Not to mention I've known quite a few people on TFF for quite a few years now and it would be cool to meet 'em.

    I can second that

    Tur is always (well almost always) the sensible one :D

    Did you mean Frankfurt am Main or Frankfurt and then via train to Mainz?
