Default Eurocon / Copenhagen - Hans' pictures (1)

The town of Neustadt in Germany where we stayed the night prior to ferrying to Denmark.



Getting on the Scandlines ferry from Puttgarden to Rodby.



And on the way to Copenhagen. A last shot of my faithful PDA called Eva



KC and Cheryl in the MoM Lounge at the Nebo Hotel



Our group during dinner the first night in Rover's Irish Pub
fltr KC, Marjon, me, Steven, Elizabeth, Cheryl and Maelin (her hubby is taking the pic)



Gifting Cheryl a copy of The Worlds of Anne McCaffrey for acting as my postmaster general in the States



And Lanen and Steven a book on the tulip fields of Holland to make them even more determined to come and see the real thing with their own eyes!



Maelin got a whole stack of books I have acquired for her over the last year; among them a nice little copy of the French translation of the short story A Ship Who Sang dating back to 1961!



Maelin wasn't to be outdone, nah... she outdid everybody else with her magnificent gifts. Here's Steven and a clearly embarrassed Lanen who even got 2 portraits! Steven (he looks like a waiter with the MoM shirt draped over his arm ) was surprised too as he thought he never sent a picture of himself to Maelin... no he indeed did not



Kind author Lanen aka Elizabeth Kerner signed stacks of books!



First day at the con; here the Fantask SF bookshop's table in the main entrance hall with P'ter showing something to Steven and Lanen.



First panel with fltr authors Bruce Holland Rogers, Elizabeth Kerner, Ruth Nestvold and Max von Schlegel.



Maelin with a Star Wars trooper. DragonCon gets platoons of these, Eurocon... eh.... one?



On the occasion of Martin's birthday we presented him with house slippers disguised as fluffy Dutch wooden shoes



*finding out 30 is the max number of images in a MoM post - so I'll have to split it up*

I'm sorry you lost your PDA Hans. The alternative isn't anywhere near as portable:

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
