I am really curious, what the meetingcard will look like! :laughing: :poop:

There is a chance the museum may design us an official one. I had a word with them last year.

Either way I’m sure it will be quite unique :joy: :poop:

I very rarely ask for exchanges for a meetingcard (I think I’ve only ever done that once, for 2 of the 4 meetingcards of a meeting in Germany), but if anyone would like to exchange with me…

It’ll also remind me of a daytrip with my mum, brother and granny, when I was 10 years old (= 46 years ago!!!). The sea was really rough that day and some mighty seasick :nauseated_face: Austrians were very happy to go on land! :wink:

I like all sorts of cards but perhaps one that makes you smile. As hopefully the meetup postcard will be one that makes people smile :slight_smile:

of course :slight_smile:

Oh what a fun idea. I wonder if they also have a compost-toilet. A friend of mine is using one and he and his wife are really enthousiastic about it.
Unfortunately I won’t be able to make the trip to the Isle of Wight. But I would love to exchange a Meetingcard for either another Meetingcard or a card according to the profile .

I don’t think they do. The museum is based in what used to be the public toilets. While the ladies and gents have been turned into the museum what would have been the disabled toilet is now the one left for everyone to use. Its rather special tho and I caputured some of it in my video from last year.

I’ll send you over one of the meetup cards :blush:

I have wanted to visit the Isle of Wight and would love to receive a meetup card from there. If anyone would like to send me one in the USA, please DM me. I will be happy to swap with you for a card that I have that might interest you or a Postcrossing card.
Thank you

Unfortunately a work event has come up on that day, so unable to make it now.
*Would love a Meetup on the Isle of Wight, will keep a lookout for a future meetup there!

@JustJo have you arranged a day off, if not as @Maddymail cant make it shall we rearrange perhaps for a weekend day?

*but not the weekend of the festival :blush:

It seems like a popular location but being on a Tuesday is less popular as i suspected but thought was worth an ask as will be on the IOW.

I’ll be honest I totally forgot! I’ll go with the flow on date change, but I work a lot of weekends and that’s why I miss lots of meet ups :pensive:

I’ve popped it as date TBC but we can pick a date that works.
