Due to the fact that I am extremely uncomfortable with the direction that some want the Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up to take, I am no longer a co-host for WEBMU 2012 in Berlin.
Not yet sure what I will do, but I imagine it will involve sand.
No comments will be accepted for this post.
This year is the 775th anniversary of Berlin, and, as in every year, there are a ton of events going on: Berlin Marathon, Christopher Street Days, the Entzaubert alternative DIY GLBT film festival, fireworks, and the Festival of Lights – to name a few.
But clearly, all of these events are competing to be the [...]
I’m back in Berlin recovering from the 2011 Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up, which was held in Cologne this year.
The 2011 WEBMU was fantastic and I heartily thank our fantastic hosts for putting together a very nice program that included lots of beer, a nice tour of the city, and a lot more beer.
I’m happy to report that I had a great day yesterday, save for two points, having traveled from Germany’s worst city to, uh…, Indiana’s largest formation that closest resembles a city, known as Indianapolis.
Actually let me back up one half step – really my whole trip has been great, except for two points, which [...]
In my humble opinion, the most highly anticipated event during the Whiney Expatriate Bloggers Unmissable Meetup – the WEBMU – is the (now) annual Queer Expedition, which is now in its third year.
Two years ago, in Dresden, Ian, of Letters Home, and I checked out its tiny and noisy gay scene on Friday night—it [...]
Yesterday it dawned on me that it’s almost time for the Whiney Expatriate Blogger Unmissable Meet-up!
It will certainly be a moist time for all.
From September 4-6 I’ll be down in Munich for the largest gathering of complaining German expatriates bloggers in 2009. We’ll be visiting all the best spots that Munich [...]
This is the first of three weekends where I am taking exciting trips to lands more distant an hour from Weimar.
Tomorrow I head up to Bremen for the Fourth Annual Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up. It’s not too late to join in; if you’re interested you should check out Germany Doesn’t Suck for more details.
I doubt there any expats-oriented readers of my blog in Germany that don’t read at least one, if not all, of the more famous expatriate blogs like Germany Doesn’t Suck, HeisseScheisse, or Cheeseburgers and Sauerkraut.
The Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up in one month’s time, September 27, is probably not news for such readers. In the [...]
…for the weekend to begin!
Of course this is a quiet weekend. Because I cannot forecast with enough accuracy some aspects of my personal life, I decided not to join the Whiney Expat Blog Meetup in Bonn.
Which reminds me, I need to cancel my hotel reservation.
Not going to the meet-up means that I [...]
