Today and tomorrow I am visiting the members of Kocke LUG in Ljubljana, Slovenia. We had a great evening together with 16 members with plenty of questions and great discussions around the LEGO hobby.
Earlier today I had the opportunity together with the AFOLs Gregor and Bostjan to learn a lot about AFOL life in Slovenia, to visit some stores that carry LEGO sets and to do a little nit of sightseeing in Ljubljana – definitely a very nice city!
Tomorrow I will have some more discussions and insights before I leave again in the evening.
I feel very welcome – thanks to all Kocke members to take so good care of me and ask a lot of questions!
Kim and I having fun building a Duplo structure to decorate the office!
Today we met with Centuri Chan and his wife from New Zealand who have been around in Billund. We got a nice little Kiwi made from LEGO bricks. Thanks again.
Look at those happy faces! 20 members of the Austrian LUG LGOe are visiting us in Billund.
Today I am visiting another AFOL Event in the Lisbon area organized by PLUG. It is in a sports arena approx. 15 min drive from Lisbon.
Already from the morning they welcomed many visitors – very nice to see all the happy children and adults.
50 AFOLs are participating and our LCP Dirk Denoyelle will visit the event later today.
I took already some pictures to share here – more to come.

Today I had the 3 designers (John for the set, Adam for the minifigs and Claus for the stickers and graphics) around in the office to sign several copies of the very nice set #79108 Stagecoach Escape.
We will use the signed copies in connection to AFOL Community activities.
Today Kim and I participate the LEGO Idea Conference and help our colleage Camilla with a little Build the Change activity for some conference participants.
