Folsom Europe (Berlin) ’15
Well, another year and another Folsom is over and done with. This year we had a week in the city of Berlin staying with 6 other guys. We met up with Master Mac and Pup Parker again, and it was great to hang around with them for the week. I didn’t get chance to play with Parker which is a shame and a regret, but I’m glad that they had amazing times in Europe. I was glad @tazipup was there with me for the company too.
We mainly did the the bars and clubs this year avoiding the main parties, but again I have regrets about missing some of the things that I wanted to do. I didn’t do the rubber party at Lab on the Saturday night, which sounded amazing. I also didn’t do Qualgeist on the Sunday, opting to go to the Sports Cruise Sneaker party that was happening at New Action, but couldn’t get into a sub headspace with the predominantly younger crowd in there, and ended up just having a couple of guys at my feet for a while. I was also pretty unimpressed with the Wednesday night pup gathering (so much so, it put me off attending Friday when I believe it was busier). Maybe the Pup Social experience has spoiled me in terms of what to expect from a pup event.
I did really enjoy the time I spent in Woof! though this year (and outside of it on the Saturday). I was unhooded for most of it, with just my leather bone for company and it was nice to get so many head scritches from all the passing bears. It also allowed me to chase after the bartenders socks and trainers, when I wanted to 😉
It was good to meet up with the Tskinpack though on the Sunday for our annual get-to-gether and it was good to do some more sightseeing and I am really proud that I finally got to go up the Berlin TV tower and take some pics. In all, I had a great trip but will definitely plan it differently with set event in the diary for next year.
