Hello! My name is Alpe, and I’m the official BlytheCon Europe 2012 travelling blythe.
I’ll be visiting some European cities till the BlytheCon Europe event in Berlin (June 30th 2012), where I’ll be raffled so you can take me home too 🙂
My journey starts in Zaragoza, a medium-sized city right between Madrid and Barcelona.
Zaragoza was born as a roman city -called Caesaraugusta-, it was populated by Muslims -as part of the Emirate of Cordoba-, and later in time it became a Christian city -capital of the Kingdom of Aragón- , so there’s an interesting mixture of styles and cultures, specially in the Old city.
Zaragoza is well known for:
– The Basilica del Pilar (a HUGE Roman catholic church nearby the Ebro river), the Seo Cathedral and the Aljafería palace.
– Being a terrible windy town.
– Goya. He was born here.
– It’s football team. (It used to be good… Long time ago).
– It’s gastronomy. Tapas here are delicious.
– It hosted the 2008 Expo. (And we had amazing concerts back then. Even Akron/Family showed up, sigh).
– We had a tram. They dismantled it in the late 70’s. We are constructing a tram again. Therefore, all the city is “under construction”.
We woke up with great news today: Stallholder tickets are sold out!
Soon we will publish more information about our marketplace, but here’s an advice: Better start saving your pennies for BCEU, cause there are gonna be amazing goodies 😉
If you were planning to purchase an stallholder ticket but you couldn’t do it on time, don’t panic. There may be cancellations and extra stalls at a later time.
Send us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get in touch with you when that happens.
Regular tickets are still available, so get yours fast, and see you soon!
