EBS is awsome - meeting online friends in real life

Post by Allana » Sat Oct 10, 2020 1:11 pm

When I joined EBS, I couldn't imagine how it would affect my real life.
I mean, gaming was a hobby that took place in my home in front of my computer., talking to people and having fun included, but that was the end of the list.
The first year I didn't dare to go to the meet - I mean - it was only strangers from the internet. And everyone knows - everyone lies in the internet.
But the second year a friend told me to go there, dare something in life, keep it intersting, go on an adventure - whatever you wanna call it. And so I did.
The experiance was only positive. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and most of all - real. So I went to my second meet, and it was even better as I already knew more people.

This week, I experienced a new level of awsomeness.
St. Obivous messaged me a couple of weeks ago, if I could give him some hints of where to go in Switzerland as he would visit it. Of course I could, and we talked quite a bit about where to go and what to see. To make it short - he and his wive visited me (and my hubby), they slept at our house and we spent some awsome hours together. Obvious and his wive (or more, Obvious' wive and him) even cooked lunch for us before they left. I mean - what better guests can you have!
It was awsome having them. We talked for hours as if we were old friends. Before EBS, never could I have imagined to invite "strangers" from the internet to my home without even knowing their real names. But know I did. My hubby and I agree in "it was amazing".

You are too kind, honestly!

From our point of view this was one of the highlights of our trip (second only to “Jungfraujoch aka top of europe”).

It was so much fun and relaxed to meet you and your husband. Not at all akward or weird, just like you said; as if we were old friends. It just shows me/us that the ebs community is full of precious and amazing people.

Thank you again for the amazing experience, from me and my wife!

EBS is becoming like a biker community just more geeky. I've friends all over the world, that I've met, had a beer with and enjoyed good food, a beer and a laugh.
