I'll be visiting Europe for a #digital-democracy retreat in June. It's such a long trip, and I haven't been to EU in 16 years, would like to take the opportunity to travel a bit and #crabmeet as much as possible.

I have no plans so far, so open to invitations from anyone anywhere :)

The retreat will be in Spain, but from what I remember moving around in Europe is pretty straight-forward, is that right? I've never visited Switzerland, Denmark, Finland or Sweden, if flights and spending time in those countries aren't stupidly expensive I've love to visit.

Keep us posted of your route. I'll try to go and meet you somewhere in the EU. ;-)

Trip to Europe is getting close, and in order for me to get in I'll have to have a flight out of Europe to show at immigration. I'm pretty much set on hanging-out with butts in nordic countries, so I'll have my flight to Brasil depart from Finland (as it's the furthest country in the region that I intend to visit).

I'll probably be around Spain until the end of June, in order to enjoy some time with the Digital Democracy team after the retreat and also meetup with @brunovianna in Barcelona. I'm thinking on travelling towards the north in the begining of July, maybe stopping in some places on the way: France to meetup with @Ladislas, Germany to meetup with Ana Rosa, Switzerland to meetup with @elavoie, Denmark/Sweden to meetup with @Powersource and @zelf, and finally Finland to meetup with @Andre and @snookie.

I'm sure there are many other butts around, so let me know if you're interested and available to hangout for a day or two. Having a place for me to crash is a big bonus :D I'm pretty much used to sleeping anywhere, so a couch or anything to soften the floor will do just fine.

I'll be arriving on June 2, and if all goes right I'll get a 90 days visa (right?). So I could be around Europe until August. Unfortunately I think the visa won't last enought for me to be able to stay for the SolPunk festival, as much as I'd love to join :(

Butts that I've mentioned, please let me know, either on this thread or in private how's you're availability, and what yall think of my plan. It's a good idea to have a date and place of departure in the next couple of days :pray:

PS.: @SoapDog (Macbook Air), you're in the UK right? Any chance we could meetup somewhere?

I'm on my flight back to Brasil :airplane: @andrestaltz was kind enough to wake up at 4am (the sun was up already) to drive me to the airport :pray:

My trip had to be shortned by 2 weeks as the #digital-democracy team thought it'd be good for me to present at the Coda event, which is part of the Pan-Amazonic forum which will be happening in Belém this week. I was very divided between spending more time in Europe and going to this important event in Brasil. In the end I let the team decide.

These past two months went by so fast, but had such amazing experiences. During my time in Catalunya it was great to finally meet @andrew 🐝 and a good part of the DD team in person. Also great to meet with @Bruno in person, after so many years collaborating in a distance.

In France @Ladislas was an amazing host and it was beyong inspiring to learn about all the social experimentation people are doing around the country side. Made me want to come to Europe more and experience the communal provisioning and the land sharing.

Finally met @Ana Rosa in person, and we also had a great time in country side Germany walking around the forest, eating white-sausages and drinking good beer :beer:

@elavoie had warned me about the cost of living in Switzerland, and I thought he was exagerating. But definately not, and he was very supportive, which made it possible for me to stay. It was an amazing week, where we started the collaboration I'm most excited about in the moment with @cft and @Etienne428 around voice communication over LoRa+SSB. And Erick is just an amazing person to exchange ideas and debate unusual topics, omega projects and collapse.

The 9 Euro ticket in Germany is the coolest thing ever. Was able to get from Basel to Berlin paying just that, although it took abour 16 hours on about 10 different trains and buses. @notplants was kind enough to host me in a very short notice, and the #p2panda group was also very nice to organize a meeting on the day I arrived. I got to meet a bunch of cool people and hangout with old friends such as @Aljoscha. Was also very amazing to hang out with Max and @wakest, who took me on a one-day anarchist tour around Berlin. Made me wish I had more time to learn more about the city and to pair on more code with Max.

Arrived in the Nordic countries with just one week left. @Powersource and his hacker/anarchist friends are amazing. Really enjoyed the Autonomous Tomorrows event, hanging out with @zelf and seeing her boat, and jamming at the anarchist-chess in a nice communal space in #malmö.

Arrived at Andre's house with just a few days to go, but it was enough to get to meet his adorable family and chill neighborhood in Finland. We had met before in an event in Brasil, but I felt we really got to connect to each other this time, I'm really grateful. We got to hangout at the amazing Helsinki library (everywhere should have something like it), hack on Manyverse, pick berries and obviously, have a sauna.

WIsh I had more time so I could reach @sonar and @crowsmobile, as well as get to visit more butts and attend more events. But I feel I'll be visiting this part of the world more from now on. Thank you amazing humans for making this trip so especial and life-changing :pray: :tada:
