Tom Allensworth's trip to Scandinavia

Recommended Posts

Hi there fellow simmers!I have been away from the net for some time, and have not had the oppertunity to write Tom in person. There seems to be no useful follow up correspondence to Tom's message about going to Scandinavia.Are there any info available on possibly meeting him in Copenhagen?For one, I would very much like to meet mr. Allensworth.With Regards,-Niels Christiansen, EKRK

Hello Francois,Thank you very much.Should he find an outlet, I hope his equipment is voltagecompatible as well as connector compatible!(Hmmm, 130V ... 240V, oh what the *BzzZZztT!*)However I am afraid we're running low on time here. I have also corresponded a bit with Matt Johnson whoactually met Tom in the U.K., and TA's schedule lookedalready then tight, but fingers crossed all the same. 8)Thank you for your time, and fly safe.With Regards,-Niels Christiansen

Time is always an issue. I will be in Copenhagen myself a few times this year I reckon. My company just started a project in the Nordics and I think I will be over in August and early September. If Tom cannot, then perhaps I will be able to buy you a beer (yes, I know it's not the same ) :-outta Francois :-wave[table border=0 cellpadding=10 cellspacing=0][tr][td valign=bottom" align="center]"At home in the wild"[/td][td valign=bottom" align="center][link:avsim.com/alaska/alaska_051.htm|Don's Alaskan Bush Charters]"Beavers Lead the Way"[/td][td valign=bottom" align="center][link:www.avsim.com/vfr_center/mainpages/vfr_flights_main_page.htm]VFR Flight Center]"Looking Good Outside"[/td][/tr][tr][td valign=top" align="center]http://avsim.com/hangar/air/bfu/logo70.gif[/td][td valign="top" align="left" colspan=2]http://www.fssupport.com/images/moose2.gif[/td][tr][/table]________________________Francois A.

Celestial salutations Francois,You would be very welcome to buy me, or us, a beer.Should you do so, count on a return favour. ;)Also you say "yes, I know it's not the same ",just because it is different doesn't mean it'snot as good! 8)Stay well,-Niels

I have but just a short while on this computer. I am at the Strand Hotel in Copenhagen. I invite anyone who wishes, to me in the bar area of the hotel (which is just beyond the reception area) this evening (Saturday 29 June) here at between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m. I will be with a collegue and I will have blue AVSIM Staff shirt on. Please spread the word, as I will not be able to access email today or probably get on the net again before this evening. I look forward to meeting all who can make it.

Hi All.I had some trouble finding the hotel in Krak's. My best guess is "Copenhagen Strand Hotel", Havnegade 37 (that's in Nyhavn).HTHSven Sorensen, EKCH

Tom lives 2 hours from me, Francois. He invites us to a bar when he's 3000 miles from here! What's wrong with this picture? LMAO!!! Last time we saw a picture of him, he was seated at a bar in Japan watching the ceilings fall in during an earthquake. He invited us there too! I'm not sure I want to drink where this guy goes! LOL!!Don

Hi, AllYup, that was funny!!Actually, it did turn out to be a very nice, almost new hotel almost door-to-door with my favourite mexican restaurant - and just around the corner from Nyhavn, which I'm sure you know if you've been to Copenhagen in summer...Legoland is a bit further away - like 300 km from Copenhagen!Anyway, it was fun to meet Tom even if I only did have time for 1 beer with him - Carl's Special - of course!BRGDSSven Sorensen, EKCH

Hi there all!There where no other earth-quakes than those in my stomachafter what Tom and Andy bought me at the Mexi-restaurant! ;-)I am from Greenland, and you can imagine that the spiceharvestthere is, to put it mildly (!), sparse.I second the remarks about the hotel and restaurant anyway!Tom! I trust the next round is on me?! You guys never gave mea chance "to get the mole out" as we would put it. Anyways...you can collect with interest the next time Scandinavia is inthe travelplan.Thank you for a nice thread with an even better followup!Fly safe,-Niels Christiansen

Sven, it was nice to meet you! Took your recommendation and Neils, Andy and I had dinner there later that evening. Great food. Was a bit concerned about Neils' historic diet (being from a place where spices are a bit "tame", I was afraid we might poison him!). Anyway, things turned out great and the food was excellent. Trip went south from there; that is, we got REALLY time compressed, and we did the "planes, trains and automobiles" thing for the next four days. Made it back last night on an SAS 767-300ER into KIAD. Nice, quiet, flight.

Niels, nice to have met you and of course, you can have the next round! It was nice to meet you and swap tortillas with each other. Next time I hope to have more than a day in CPH. :)

Francois, trust me on this one... Stay at the Strand! It is just around the corner from Nyhaven, and a nice stroll in the old section of town. In addition to being just down the street from the Mexican place, the opposite direction and just around the corner is an excellent fish restaurant. That was worth the walk too! We stayed at the SAS Radisson Wednesday night before flying out Thursday morning. The Strand is mucho better.

Tom, You know... I've got one of those babies on my HDD, might as wellreplicate the trip when I get home. I don't know however what to thinkof the stealth cream colour thing."Planes, trains and automobiles"? So you did not get to meet Staffanand others then? What a shame, they'd have enjoyed.Strand Hotel in Nyhavn is well located, even if you are out of town.Easy to get to at any hour...more or less.Take care.Niels (that's i before the e ;)

Hi Niels,"stealth cream colour"...HAHA, that's a good one! Actually, I've come to get used to our new livery - I think the big problem with the new one is, that the old one was soo beautiful. I remember standing on a mountain top in Norway and one of our A/C's (prob. DC-10) flew past (prob. out of EKCH). Even at it's altitude you could see the white body and the stripes clearly...Remember, Francois will also be coming to CPH sometime, I do think we should try another get-togheter - maybe less spicy, maybe not...BRGDSSven Sorensen, EKCH
