Hi!

Iíd really like to attend the piano party, but as told in RST I have to go back to University to do some studies. Iíll have classes and probably exams in July and these duties have to be compatible with work and family.

So Iím afraid I canít go to Lisbon on that date. I hope you enjoy this party. Iíll miss you all.

Recaredo - I was hoping you'd come to the party because Lisbon is not too far from the south of Spain... Anyway, I fully understand your reasons. All the best for you, your family, and your studies thumb


torquenale - I've 3 guests too (wife, +2 kids), so I understand your concern. As I told, the final price will be discussed with the manager and, one of my goals, is to get a "regular meal price" for the guests; in other words, the fairest option is: a "guest" will pay only for the meal.
So, I'll do everything possible to get the best price in order to be fair for all of us - the pianists and the guests -. But, there are more options to discuss which can change the logic behind the price...

And of course it's OK! You don't even need to announce your piece in advance.


The updated list:

Recaredo, too bad you'll have to miss this piano party. Maybe next year (Italy?, epp3), you'll have the opportunity to come within your study scheme.

First of all, what IS confirmed is that I'm alone on this. My wife is away! That's settled! grin

Now, my problem is that I've been watching for cheap flights and simply can't find any. The cheapest one available for Fri - Mon or anything like that is 319 euros (so $440), which is a little steep, considering I'd have to get a single room for 2 or 3 nights which would be another few hundred... and I can't be cheap with my travels, so I'd like to get some tapas, some wine, beer, etc, or whatever it is you're having.

So, here's what I propose:

If you want to spend a couple of minutes and scout the Internet for cheap flights from Athens (GR) to Lisbon (Pg) I'd love to hear from you and possibly book the flight straight away.

I don't know if I'm asking too much or what not, but I WANT to come! I honestly do!

Nicolas - I'm glad you're able to join us!!! thumb
I found some flights in http://www.edreams.com/ website and the cheapest it's Ä300: Athens to Lisbon on the 04-July returning on the 06-July (direct flight, no transfers). If you don't mind about transfers you'll find lower prices. If you change the dates you may also find some differences.

Nikolas, I found a flight with expedia.com for 314 dollars (I suppose it is US dollars) I couldn't find a way to convert on the website but it should be about 225 in euros.

I also looked at other Airlines - but the prices were higher.
We are travelling with TAP and got a good deal (132 euros each) but we booked months ago. Unfortunately you couldn't be sure of travelling until now frown
I hope you can find something that fits the budget !!!

UKIkarus - Some of us are arriving on Thursday, some on Friday some are staying til Monday or Tuesday - I suspect some will be leaving on Sunday to be back at work on Monday.

Carlos, it would be great to meet your friend! I do hope that Nikolas can confirm 100%-- I think it depends on getting good prices for the flights - if he can grab something soon... I think it will work! yipee!

You can always try

http://www.skyscanner.net/transport...tional-to-lisbon-in-july-2014.html?rtn=1

changing where necessary.

On a side note: £450-500 for flight/hotel etc seems to be average for me from what I have found... hopefully just a little longer and I'll be good to book laugh

Due to changing priorities, I'm afraid I won't be attending the piano party after all. Please take me off the list. Apologies for letting you all down.

Well, I have sent off the passport app... they say 3 weeks minimum as it is a first passport, they also said I should try to avoid booking anything until it is processed in case anything goes wrong.

All well and good so long as the prices don't drastically increase between now and then eek fingers crossed everything goes smoothly!

Hello everybody!!!

Some words about our EPP:
The location and date it's closed but I'm in "negotiations" in order to get the lowest price for our EPP. As you understand, I need to know the approximate (or exact!) number of guests.
So, This is a kind of "intermediary call" because I need to start drawing a clean list.
Please answer: how are your plans?

Oh, and I added HBejinha, a friend of mine who will be with us in Lisbon.

Hi,

I will take holiday from work from thursday 3 july until monday 7 juli. The plan is to stay two nights in Lissabon, friday and saturday. The plain tickets I will buy end of may when holiday money is added to my bank account. Then it will be clear if I have to travel via Brussels or not, I think.

I too was looking over things to do in and around Lisbon, stumbled upon the exact same page about Fado and went researching... I'd be happy to check it out amongst other things, might as well make the most of the time. smile

Hello,
(I'm just traveling to Lisbon now. I was in the mountains on vacations without internet access)

So, sounds like everything is being prepared. That's great.

UKIkarus - An... interview? You need to do an interview to get a passport?

Casinitaly - Fado is great. It's a typical music of Lisbon region and it was inscribed in 2011 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Check here: http://www.unesco.org/culture/ich/RL/00563

more later.

Carlos, thanks for the link! I read about it in my tour guide book and got curious!

As for the passport interview... I can not imagine how exppensive that is for the government ...and look at this in the news for today: saying that it is , in effect, a waste of time!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukn...erviews-catch-only-eight-fraudsters.html

UKIkarus - I hope your interview goes smoothly and you get it soon - time is running down!!

I agree, it seems completely ridiculous and as you say is a complete waste of time for both parties involved.

Unfortunately, it has to be done in order for my application to be processed frown
My finger is itching over the booking pages, I have been looking for quite some time now but am stuck waiting for the all clear longer than I'd have liked.


I am still incredibly nervous about the whole thing, being a beginner I don't have much of a repertoire and last time I tried playing in front of a crowd I fell to bits frown
