(This is an entry I've wanted to write for a while, but never took the time to.)
In the last few years, my wife and me have had the pleasure to be invited for dinner/lunch by several Perl mongers, when we were visiting their countries. It's always been a pleasure to meet them (and their families), when we were half lost in a foreign country. This added a very personal and friendly touch to several of our holiday trips (in Ireland, Italy and Denmark so far).
This Saturday, we had a French mongueur passing by with his wife and kids for dinner (they were on their way back from holidays). Such evenings are always nice, and I realised that if I want more, I have to let the world know.
Therefore, if you are a Perl monger passing by Lyon someday, drop me an email to let me know. I'd love to meet you up for a beer or dinner (in a local restaurant or at my place).
