Quote

Frequent passport checks used to be a pain when travelling around continental Europe.

However, 25 countries in Europe (including Switzerland and EEA members Norway and Iceland) have signed up to a scheme known as the Schengen Agreement, which allows travellers to move from state to state without the need for passport checks.

The UK is not a full member of the agreement, so UK travellers will have to show their passports when entering the Schengen region, but once inside, you’re generally free to move from one country to another without passport control or customs checks.

For those of you who are interested in picking up a little bit of Portuguese before the party, check out the APP: duolingo

You can use it on your smart phone or your computer and it is a pretty good little program!

I love reading the updates of your plans!
Nikolas, are you joying us? Have you decided yet?

Some news: I think I found a nice place to do our EPP2014. I'm going to meet again with the manager to discuss some details and the price. I went there to try the piano and to dinner. I liked both!
Once decided I'll tell where is it smile

Meanwhile, I was collecting information about Lisbon:

http://www.golisbon.com/
http://www.visitlisboa.com/

Lisbon weather statistics:
:: http://www.worldweatheronline.com/Lisbon-weather/Lisboa/PT.aspx#5sdVyRTpV5ur5x4H.99

information about ID cards and passports when traveling inside Europe:
:: http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/travel/entry-exit/eu-citizen/index_en.htm

European Health Insurance Card:
:: http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559


10 Reasons Why You Should Go to Lisbon:
CULTURE: It's one of the world's great historical cities, with characteristic and surprising sights, cultural treasures, and a beautiful setting that make it a paradise for walkers and photographers.
VALUE: It's one of Europe's best values -- officially Western Europe's least expensive capital.
LOCATION: It's the closest European capital to the United States and just around a 2-hour flight from all the other major European cities.
CLIMATE: Its mild climate makes it an ideal year-round destination. Even in winter, when most other European cities are freezing, in Lisbon high temperatures rarely go below 10C (50F).
RESORT: It is the only European capital located so close to sandy beaches, enabling visitors to combine culture with fun by the sea.
SIZE: It's a compact and intimate city, ideal for a short city break or a longer romantic stay, with a lively café culture and a nightlife that is one of the most vibrant in Europe.
VARIETY: Its surroundings offer an incredible variety of tourist attractions, from fairytale palaces in one of Europe's most romantic towns (Sintra), to world-class golf and fun in Europe's largest casino in Estoril, to surfing in Cascais or escaping to a natural park in Arrábida, to dolphin-watching in Setúbal.
GATEWAY: It makes a perfect base to explore many of Portugal's most outstanding towns and villages, from Evora to Obidos.
SAFETY: It's one of the safest European capitals. Tourists are always automatic targets in all big cities and visitors should beware of pickpocketing in Lisbon, but serious random violent crime is practically unheard of in this city.
WELCOMING: It's a friendly city with a cosmopolitan population, welcoming to all visitors and families with children, and open to minorities and alternative lifestyles.

Carlos! Thanks for all those links - and that's great news that you think you've found the location for our event! woohoo!

It is wonderful to have so much organized so early in the year.

The app I downloaded for Learning Portuguese is really very entertaining --- and useful. I feel I'm well on the way to feeling I'll be able to function, at least at "survival tourist level" by the time July rolls around!

Can I have an extra month more or less to decide? Or a bit less actually. I'm just going through some weird family times, plus there's this kickstarter thing running which takes away all my energy...

Nikolas, of course, you can. I think that by the end of April/mid May you can still decide. After that date is more complicated, because there are reservations and appointments to make and I need to know the exact number of guests.
Don't forget that you'll get better prices in airplane tickets and hotels if you decide ASAP.

Nice to know that you guys will all learn Portuguese. smile

Adeus,
CarlosCC

I have choosen my piece for the EPP2. It will be Heller etude op 47 no 5.

Not a very long piece though, but I like it very much. And one or two old pieces to get comfy at a strange piano.

I booked my hotel today: Ibis Libertade.

Defining factors for this hotel were:
- Close to the City center
- I know what to expect from Ibis (and I have an Accorclub Card)
- Not too expensive
AND (last not least):
- Relatively close to the Lisboa Plaza hotel (about 700 meters on foot, according to Google Maps). So I can meet those who stay there at the subway station.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

Well, I have about 400 words in Portugues.... most of them I can't imagine using! However, I can order a sandwich, chicken, a steak, juice, water, coffe or wine, and ask where the bathroom is. I think I'm good to go smile


Paperclip -that's great that you know what you're playing ! Heller has some great pieces - I look forward to hearing yours!

PatH - Glad you'll be near where we're staying! I am pretty sur Paperclip/Chris is close-by too. At the Lisboa Plaza we have SwissMS + hubby, Saranoya, me + hubby and Ganddalf. Torquenale + family are booked a little farther North from us - but not too far. Things are really coming together nicely!


I haven't seen Allard or Wouter around in this thread lately...any updates from them?

Carlos....you hinted that you may have found our venue.....are you keeping us in suspense ? smile

Ah, 400 words in portugues is fantastic, casinitaly!

I'm learning 50-100 words portugues about food and drinks, so I could order from a non translated menu. But I will do so in english though.

I would love to try a local dish like fried pig's ear, haha.

Nice that we all stay in the same neighbourhood. laugh

Hello everybody.

patH, nice to know about your booking. IBIS Liberdade is fine!

Cheryl - It's not confirmed yet. I'll announce it soon. I promise thumb
About 400 words??? Wow, you'll have to teach me some of them wink

Chris, your post gave me an idea about the list of pieces we will play. We can do a kind of "EPP2004 program" with, at least, a piece for each member. Of course anyone can play more than one piece but it will be funny to have one or two pre-announced pieces for each one - like we do in ABF Recitals -.

So, we have:
EPP2014 program
PaperClip/Chris - Etude op 47 no 5 (Stephen Heller), +2
CarlosCC - Time Lapse (Einaudi), Life (Einaudi), +n


I have been very busy in my office, but from early March everything will return to normal.
Have a nice week.

Carlos, I'm up over 500 words now smile Mind you some of them are not all that useful for our weekend get-together!

Still, it is great fun. I hope we can try for a Skype chat when things calm down for you - this week and last were just tooooooooo busy for me too!

I like the idea of a little program for the EPP - I'm aiming for the Clementi Sonatina I didn't have ready for the Feb recital as my main piece. I have also my Fughetta (Pachelbel) I'd like to play and perhaps Franck's "Plaintes d'une Poupée".


Is anyone up for some duets? I have some fairly simple ones I used to play with my first teacher.

EPP2014 program
PaperClip/Chris - Etude op 47 no 5 (Stephen Heller), +2
CarlosCC - Time Lapse (Einaudi), Life (Einaudi), +n
Casinitaly/Cheryl - Clementi Sonatina Op 36 N2. + 2? (willing to try duets - even sightreading)

500 words? wow! is this with the app? will certainly have to look into learning some myself.

As for Skype, despite being given the details by Carlos I had roughly 1000+ Carlos results come back so I sure hope I have added the right one. (can just imagine trying to discuss things with a completely random person)

I look forward to hearing all these pieces, and while I absolutely LOVE the idea of duets and have been talking to my teacher about them for some time, my reading ability is sorely lacking. It will be interesting to see what comes up at the EPP though, exciting.

As for myself, I have yet to decide on anything to play as I am still learning some VERY basic pieces via sheets, never the less when the time comes I'll do my best to contribute something smile

Still struggling to get all the documentation for the passport at the moment, but that should hopefully be sorted by the end of the month.

Notice: Skype use unique usernames. So if you add exactly my skype username you add me to your list. Of course there are lots of other combinations.

I'll send a PM with my personal contacts to EPP2014 members

Hello! I've some good news.

I want to announce the location of our EPP2014:
"Duetos da Sé" - It's a restaurant/bar near the "Sé Catedral" and It has a lovely "C. Bechstein" piano.

Why I choose this place:
- I went there for dinner and I loved playing that piano, and the food is really good;
- The piano is tuned every 15 days, just because this bar has a musical program with professional musicians playing for the public at weekends;
- The location is near the cathedral inside "Alfama" district;
- We'll have a buffet with typical food and wines;
- It will be close to the public between 01:00PM - 06:30PM just for us - this was the tricky part -, so we've plenty of time to play and eat.

[Linked Image]
About the price:
The price depends on the menu and I'm waiting for that information soon, but I'm sure it isn't expensive because the manager is friend of a friend of mine smile

Thanks! I hope you like the location ... I tried to do my best smile
My idea was to make a reservation as early as possible because there are many musicians who love to perform there.
In any case, I will not stop looking for more locations... We never know if I find something better, right? But, at least, this one is ours smile

And now, an update to our program:

EPP2014 program
PaperClip/Chris - Etude op 47 no 5 (Stephen Heller), +2
CarlosCC - Time Lapse (Einaudi), Life (Einaudi), +n
Casinitaly/Cheryl - Sonatina Op 36 N2. (Clementi) + 2? (willing to try duets - even sightreading)
Ganddalf/Inge S - A piece for me to play (Inge S)

Hello EPP members!

I'm going out for dinner with my wife at "Duetos da Sé" restaurant. I'm going to choose the menus to our buffet and talk with the manager about some details of our EPP... and, of course, to hear my wife's opinion about the location (let's see if I can get a successful approval wink )

Meanwhile, here is the updated list of participants:

And the program is...

An update about the "wife's test" smile

My wife was a bit suspicious about the place but the friendliness of the owner was enough to leave her with a good impression. As she could see the space is very intimate, with mirrors, paintings hanging on the wall, and a floor lamp beside the piano. It looks like a living room of any ordinary house.

We ate "cod fish with toasted bread" and "pork cheeks with mashed vegetables" and my wife was delighted with the quality of the food. The owner - also called Carlos - offered us a few slices of smoked ham and some other things. Everything was very good.

So, we agreed that this is a nice location for us: it's inside a typical district of Lisbon, it's near the main Cathedral and the city center, the non-pianists can easily go for a walk, the room is large enough, the food is good, and the piano is "cool". yippie


About the price:
The price depends on the menu chosen for the buffet, but I think it will be a maximum of 30/35€ per person. This value includes free access to the (tuned!) piano, the food, the drinks, and the rent of the space between 01PM and 06PM - we don't want strangers with us, right? -. Making some quick sums, I would say that a typical meal costs about 20/25€ person, so we will pay more 5/10€ for the piano and for the exclusivity of the restaurant.

But don't take this information as a final price, because we are going to discuss the details and I think I'll manage to have a lower value. Btw. I've been doing some surveys in other locations and all prices are higher (mainly because we want to have the exclusivity of the space).

Anyway, I'd love to hear what do you think about this range of values.


Notice: These conditions apply to a minimum number of 20 guests... right now we have 18 guests confirmed (10+8), so we are almost reaching the "magic number". I don't know what's happening with RecaredoWouter D'hoye and Nikolas... Any news?

Count me in as for two persons. I will eat for two, I think. So it will be 19 persons who have confirmed until now.

The restaurants looks very good to me. It's an opportunity for me to taste the qualities of the chef. I'm a apprentice in the kitchen and I would like to eat a lot, just to expand my reference of taste (good music, good people, new food, foreign country). I think it's worth the investment for me. grin

Sounds great!

Still need to get some more practicing in as I keep putting other things first, at this rate I won't have a piece to play (can't have that!)

On a side note, I have finally managed to get hold of the documents needed to apply for a passport, fingers crossed I'll have the application ready and sent shortly.
