"My vacation has begun, but before I join my family, I had to make a short trip to UK (Brighton) on my own, with the sole purpose of meeting in person dear friend Juxta founder of Atom Collectors Records and Rising Star Game. @atomcollector , @risingstargame , and Stick Up Boys. @stickupboys ."
Yes. Yesterday, finally, after so many years of being in touch, collaborating, communicating or simply having fun online during Sunday Radio Evolved shows, we met in person and had a really nice day.
A bit of time off, the ease of travelling between Amsterdam and Brighton made it possible and you could say mission accomplished. It was worth every minute of it.
Just a simple, nice day being in the company of people you already like and have very much in common with, but cannot see often in person. We talked about everything, personal matters, music, game, hive and etc... Really nice day.
Today I'm already back, it is almost like the movie Snatch kind of travel. Totally cool. :) Now I have to join my family for the rest of the vacation.
Brighton as city.... Very chillax vibe. It reminded me more of Amsterdam than of London, that is for sure. :)
It is a very relaxed, quite pretty and also historically and culturally rich place. That is an impression that one can get at such short notice, but also before arriving I also had quite a few friends of mine, who had been to Brighton previously, and they all told me that I would like it, and that they liked it.
And I could see very quickly what they meant. Dozens upon dozens of pubs, caffes, music or comics shops, shops, venues, awesome beachfront that you cannot see where it begins where it ends.
Definitely worth visiting in any case. That Brighton happend to be the location of our meeting, made it all even better.
I'll post a few photos that I took. I did not have that much time, but having accommodation in the heart of the city gave me the opportunity to still spend some good hours walking around. Sightseeing.
Nice. I'm sure if this crazy world let us, this was the first but not the last time we met in person. Perhaps, next time in Amsterdam and Juxta or Stick-Up Boys write travel blog instead of me. :) I'm also hoping on future opportunities to meet in person even more friends from this awesome music and game community.
I feel really good about this.
We keep on Rocking.!
Much regards and love to all of you.
