Budapest Winter Camp 2009
Posted November 18th, 2009 - 7:41 pm by from Budapest, Hungary (Permalink)
U P D A T E!
REGISTRATION: http://www.couchsurfingbudapest.com

The 6th annual Winter Camp will be held in Budapest, Hungary, from December 29, 2009 to January 3, 2010. Bath houses, ice skates, insane dance parties, concerts, massive quantities of alcohol, and the maddest DJs this side of Cimmeria (Europe) may all be involved in the festivities this year.

The Winter Camp is an annual new year's celebration held in a different city each year, which brings together members of several online hospitality networks. The first five events were held in Vilnius in 2004; Riga in 2005; Warsaw in 2006; Istanbul in 2007; and Berlin in 2008. The gathering aims to foster cultural exchange, sharing, and global friendship, through mass intoxication, wild partying, and collective good times.

"It's going to be fatter than pure zsír and hotter than your mama's Paprikás chicken," said one Budapest organizer. "It's going to be unforgettable... at least after you have been reminded the next day of what you did the night before!"

Join this event for programs, announcements, and early word when registration opens!
