My *V*Birthday with VB friends in Spain! (Lisa Feigenbaum)

My *V*Birthday with VB friends in Spain! (Lisa Feigenbaum)

  • Comments 8

Yesterday I turned a year older, and spent the day meeting new people at user groups in Spain. Here's how the day went:

07:45 Meet our host, VB MVP Pep Lluis Blano. Leave the hotel in Barcelona and head to Vic in our van, rented for the week.

09:30 - 12:30 User group presentations in Vic.

12:30 - 14:30 Lunch with user group members in Vic. Chocolate birthday cake for all. :)

Streets in Vic outside the restaurant:

My birthday gift from Pep. (Very nice scarf!) Marta, a woman involved in the user group, picked it out. :)

14:30 - 17:00 Drive from Vic to Tarragona, waiting in traffic for an accident.

17:30 - 20:00 User group presentations in Tarragona.

More on the Tarragona meeting in this post by user group leader Marc Rubiño Ramírez: 

20:00 - 20:30 Drive to the hotel in Tarragona. Here's a view of the Roman wall from our hotel in Tarragona:

20:30 - 21:30 Drinks with Tarragona user group members.

21:30 - 23:00 Dinner at the hotel.

Buenas noches!

  • Hi Lisa:

    I hope you enjoyed your short stay in Tarragona.

    And... happy birthday!!!!

  • Thanks, Cristobal! Nice meeting you.


    (sorry I'm late to the party)

  • Happy Birthday Lisa!

    My apologies,  I couldn't be in your event in Madrid because I was too busy working. I'm sorry. I know from the feedback attendee's that the event was very interesting.

    Thanks for all. Is very important for all users groups to have the opportunity of attend to these type of events from the Visual Basic team and other Microsoft teams directly. Thanks for all your efforts.

  • Hi Jorge!

    Yes, I was hoping to see you in Madrid. Too bad the schedule didn't work out. Perhaps we will meet in March at the MVP Summit?
