It´s the season of – a ToyPhotoSafari!

Ah, don´t you just love September in the northern hemisphere?

Summer is just rolling the dice trying to decide whether to stay or make space for autumn; still you have all these sweet memories of precious days off, maybe still finding some sand in your pockets from some beaches far, far away. The shelves of the supermarkets are being monopolized by Christmas cakes/cookies/chocolate.. (and did I just hear “Last Christmas” for the first time this year??)

This year September is feeling different for me. Every time I´m heading downtown I´m thinking about this month´s last weekend! Are there still better places to see? Will Petrus, our weather god, be merciful on us? Did we think of everything or what have we forgotten? If you´re asking yourself “Why? What´s going on in Hamburg on that weekend?” the let me reply” Oh my, it´s the weekend of the HamburgToyPhotoSafari”!

Yes, I´m already and definitely looking forward to be spending that weekend with old friends and new faces, roaming the streets of the city looking for interesting corners to take photos of plastic and to having a great time. I´m hoping to avoid some mistakes from my previous meet-up in the Archipelago last year (when near water, watch all your belongings; check on your equipment beforehand; local beverages,…) and am absolutely looking forward to meeting some attendees who so far I only met on Instagram. I´m also hoping to creating this a weekend to make those who will be there want to come back again-whether it´s for the people, the spirit, the architecture…


If you´ve already booked a flight/train/hotel-
better pack your gear and toys like PerryPanda- I can´t wait to meet you!

If you haven´t but are thinking of giving it a go-
go and join the SiP goes Hamburg Facebook group to get more info on when and where and to help us planning as precise as possible.

If you haven´t because you know you can´t make it this time although you had wished to-
rest assured we will be thinking of you and sharing some moments on the social media under hashtags yet to be announced.

Me too. I have a beginning of an idea of what to bring but I guess in the end, I will bring way too much and get ideas on the spot with minifig that I don’t have with me :-)

So true, especially without knowing much about Hamburg! Maybe I should just pack a box with some random minifigs :D

I wish that I could go, being so close to me, but I’m in Copenhagen the 24th celebrating a friend.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
