HU Mini Meet for woman travellers. 19-21 August, UK
On 19-20 and 21 of August (2011) we would like to organize a 'Ladies Travellers Only' Mini Meet in South West Scotland, near Dumfries.
The idea is to create a possibility to meet woman who would like to start travelling or have been already on a trip. You are also very welcome if you are not riding your own bike, but are a pillion, as long as you are interested in sharing adventures and plans.
The key question of course is not where we put our hairdryer, it's about fulfilling your travel dreams.
If you have never been on a bike trip you can learn from others. If you have already enjoyed trips near and far, you can share your experiences and knowledge. It's about inspiration and also fun!
We can offer great camping (in Maya's BIG garden; beautiful surroundings, no neighbours) and we can cook inside the house. If it's dry we can have a bonfire.
Let us know if you are interested and if you have any ideas please reply. We can only create together a good Mini Meet.
'Us' are Debz and Maya (both sidecar fans). www.adventuresidecar.co.uk
Take some time of and come to Scotland, we have it all; rain, wind, midges...but it's absolutly breathtaking! I am born in the land of windmills, coffeeshops and cloqs, but when I am homesick while travelling I want to be in Scotland.
Hope to see you!
We have few questions:
Is this a Ladies “ONLY” meeting?
Will be other guys allowed to be there? Or will be only Andy strutting around the Ladies?
To make the story short we were thinking to travel to UK and visit some friends, on the way maybe to attend to the big HU Ripley meeting, then we considered the short time left to the event and the short money we have, we decide to re-plan it maybe for next year.
Now you pops up with this event and considering that will be in August, that we want to see you both, and the HU Autumn Mendip meeting in early September, we are again thinking about and considering all what is involve (our work, our sons, time to see the many friends we have in UK, all the places we want to know, money and all that s...)
Bike isn’t a problem we have some offers if we can solve the insurance, we hope few places to stay too, will see...
Keep in touch.
Javier & Sandra

Nice web site, interesting.
Have a good trip!
Hi Debz and Maya
what a great idea. Unfortunately I will be away in Portugal that week, otherwise I would have definitely come up for it.
I hope you have a great time and hopefully we will be able to follow it up with another one at some point.
Thanks for your support all the way from China (I just have been reading your post on the Hubb) and I hope you won't be stuck there for to long.
Years ago I went with my Andy to my first HU meeting in Ripley and the first presentation I went to was yours; you where riding in a chador, fell off your bike sometimes more then ten times a day. Bike maintanance was still a secret to you, but you got everywhere!
So eat a lot of 'good luck cookies' there in China and come back safely, Maya.
I would love to come. It just so happens I already have that friday off work & was looking for an excuse to go somewhere - now I have one!
As yet, I have no plans for a big biking trip but always open to ideas and suggestions.
Cooped up indoors in crap weather? Binge watch over 20 hours of inspiring, informative and entertaining stories and tips from 150 travellers! Check it out at the HU Store! Remember to order them both and use Coupon Code 'BoxSet+' on your order when you checkout.
