Run, run, RUNNING!

So the final mad dash of getting the inbox reduced as much as possible has begun.

The past days since coming back from the US – I do promise a recap of that travel at some point – has been focused on reaching a spot where I can spend my vacation with an eased mind.

Even though it has been somewhat hectic, I do believe I’ll get there by Friday and I even had the time to say “Hi!” to Carlos from Hispabrick Magazine as he paid us a visit.

I think I was still a little “off” from my travel and the massive inbox to be fully “there” but Carlos was quite forgiving.

What has Kim been up to lately?

Good question.

So beginning of May I had the pleasure of supporting Eurobricks in celebrating their 10th Eurobricks Event Anniversary which happened to be in Billund.

The schedule of switching between LEGOLAND Billund, LEGOLAND Windsor and LEGOLAND Günzburg for their events “luckily” placed them in the heart of LEGO for this special edition.

While the hard working event organizers planned most things, I did help out in planning a visit to the moulding factory and also the print and packing facilities.

It was a great pleasure to have more than 50 AFOLs from all over the world come to Billund and share their passion and joy in a couple of very intense and hectic days.

And since so many AFOLs were in one place we grabbed the opportunity and had a meeting with all the Eurobricks staffers there and the Community Engagement & Events team members in office.

2 hours and a bunch of pizzas later we had to stop the meeting as we had a tight schedule, but I think it is safe to say that everyone got a lot from it and that it served well to strengthening the bonds between the AFOL community and our department.

Below is a round of images from the visit, and yes I am fully aware that the digital camera on my iPhone is not all that awesome…

Lipno Event 2014 – Czech Republic

The past 2 days I was visiting the Lipno Event 2014 in Czech Republic. This event is held in the Lipno Point vacation center right at the shore of Lake Lipno in cooperation with the Czech LUG Kostky.org.

When I arrived Friday afternoon from Prague the over 40 participating AFOLs were eagerly setting up to be ready for the Grand Opening the next morning.

It all came together in time after a night shift so the event opened at 10am for the public.

You can see awesome MOCs all build by Czech AFOLs. They outpace themselve over and over again!

Here some impressions!

I want to say thank you to all people who made this incredible exhibition happen!
If you want to visit – which I strongly recommend – you have time until September 30th.
