I'll be there! I am very much looking forward to seeing you all again :D and maybe some others, too?

EDIT: I'm hoping to have actually improved my Finnish by that point! It will probably still be a NO, but I'd like to be able to at least tell people it's a 'no' in Finnish. It would also be great to have stronger German (existent German is probably more achievable) and maybe even some small amount of Dutch? I'll work on basic Slovak a couple of months before the gathering, hopefully.

Oh, I'd love to go! Reading about the different gatherings that have already taken place, it seems like such a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, I can't really plan future travelling at the moment due to my health situation. And even if I can travel, I also want to go to Ireland again next year, so I really don't know if I'll make it to Bratislava. Would be different if the meeting took place in Berlin again.

But I'm really considering it...

Yeah, but that would entail flying with Ryanair... ;)

The problem isn't really getting from Ireland to Bratislava (although I'd prefer flying from Cork rather than Dublin if it came to it). I don't even know when I'll be in Ireland, but end of May might just be the time. The problem is rather my financial situation and my health. I'm still in quite a delicate condition and I don't know if I'll be feeling better or worse in May. And then I probably just won't be able to afford both trips, especially so shortly after one another. But, as I said, I'll keep myself informed and I'm still considering it. I just can't make any promises right now.
