In July, 2014 I travelled to Europe with my wife Marija for an 8 week holiday. During that time we stayed without very good friends Marnix (OP7M), his wife Martine, and son Goan. We also spent a lot of time with Eddy (ON6ZV) and his wife Carine, who are friends with Marnix and Martine.
One of the events that was organised was a 'Meet and Greet' at the local radio club. This was a fantastic evening. I met a number of hams that I ahd spoken with over the years. And now I got to share a beer with them in person. Marnix and Eddy did their very best to get me drunk that night on Belgium beer.
