Bloggers Summit in Madrid
...oh! well, not a crowded one (just two of us) ...but consider the high quality of the meeting attendants! :-)
Yes, our famous Canadian blogger Curt from Analogue Hobbies stopped by Madrid in his spring European tour visiting the UK, the Netherlands and France and we both have the opportunity to share some locally made beer and tapas (no Rioja this time!).
Curt is an active and very respected blogger and a fellow member of the Lardite brotherhood, also very well known for organising a global annual painting contest (recently concluded in its fourth edition). If you (unlikely) has not visited his blog yet, don't waste your time: a must for any wargaming aficionado and you'll find the quality of both content and photos a source of endless inspiration to your games and painting work.
Although this was the first time we met face to face, it was like if we have known each other from long ago. Actually this has been an unexpected bonus of my blogging activity: the strong bonds emerging from our shared interests the hobby... and the impressive ability of the social media to establish links among people separated by continents and oceans!
It was a similar experience when I visited Salute in 2012 and met the Lard crowd at the Fox’s or when Steve from Norseygamer (another Lardista!) stopped at Madrid briefly when touring the Iberian Peninsula’s Napoleonic battlefields.
So if any you blog readers happened to come to Madrid, do not hesitate a minute to contact me and I’ll make my best to share some drinks and tapas in my city and/or organise a game in our local club.
