arrivals board were write the plane will be on time.
About 14:40 Thomas called to Cathy and said the plane is
just getting fuel and it will be late, because it has
some technical problems. So our waiting was much prolong.
Can we meet him? We know what he will wear, but we are
not sure he will not escape our eyes?
We are four, but it is easily to miss somebody in this
big crowd... So we are waiting impatiently.
The rest of Fans will come to Wieliczka tomorrow, it is
mean on Saturday, July 9th.
15:10 is closer - the time of arrival..., there is no
information on arrivals board the plane will late...,
pretty good "mill" on the slab of the airport -
some planes are arriving, some planes are taking off...,
buses are going round and round - they bring and take
back the passengers..., and maybe Thomas is here and we
did not see him??? But he has a number of Cathy's mobile
phone, so we hope he will call...
Time - 15:20..., silence..., stillness at the airport...,
no planes ..., it is tremendous heat..., some minutes of
uncertainty and flutter..., we have never see each other
..., but we know Thomas from his website and photos ...,
so we hope we meet him :)
It is 15:40..., plane of EASY Jet is moving slowly
towards slab of the airport . It is Thomas' plane from
Berlin. We are straining our eyes. Two buses with
passengers drived up to entrance. Some of us said: "There
he is!!!". We all go down to wait for our Guest from
Dresden. Fortunately inside was even empty,
so we have no fear we will lose him.
Thomas is going out. That's him! Happiness, a short
welcome and meeting. Than we all come back
to the motel, Thomas have to unpack and we all have to go
And then??? And then we will see...

19:00 our Fan Meeting was finished, but only this part in
confernce room. But nobody is going away. There was a
time to paying for a confernce room and a projector. The
prices were larger, because of people
they did not come. We are SORRY for this!!! But it was
not our fault, it was fault of irresponsible people
they clicked for button on our website.
Ashamed for this!!! And wish you were not here !!! But
this incident did not spoil our great party.
tell us about a hill where we can see a beautiful view to
Wieliczka and Cracow.
Trip in Wieliczka
it was light we decided to go to this hill. We made a few
commemorative photos, then we went to
The Salt Mine and come back to the motel. And there???
And there we were a great evening under sunshades, in the
garden, by the music of Sandra, we had some disco lights,
beers, sausage and long conversations till midnight.
Thomas showed us some unique photos from his journey to
Ibiza, he had a few copies of DVDs with Sandra's TV
appearances from France, Spain and her concerts etc. - so
he gave these DVDs to Fans as a gifts. We all would like
to THANK YOU for DVDs Thomas!!!
Evening party in the
midnight we all went to our rooms. In the morning we had
some breafast, we paid for our rooms, made some photos in
front of the motel and we all went to the airport to say
goodbye to our foreign Guest.
was without Pawe³ and Mariusz, because they left at 10:00
to visit Crocow.
We spent a moment together in Balice. We gave a small
gift to Thomas as a memento of a nice moments
we spent together - a small figurine of a Wawel Dragon,
we hope he will remember us forever:)
Leave-taking at the
the last handshake and we go to the way back: Thomas to

to THANK Marek for taking them to the train station!!!],
Misia with Samurai, Rexor and Rysiek went to Warsaw and
our four, Cathy, me and our beloved husbands went to
and then to our homes.
Till the next
hope , we will remember so nice our first Fan Meeting in
And what do you think about it??? Read yourself :)
"First - historical meeting. It was
great to meet people, who adore Sandra like me.
To talk by her music and the unforgettable
concert of Samurai, that
I met him in person!"
with I would like to stress, that I will not beat
about the bush
and to avoid sensitive subjects. I admit, that
I am very surprise this nice atmosphere, which
was on this Fan Meeting. I haven't participated
in this meeting for a while, all people showed
a proper standard of personal culture. First,
there was not drunken party and some riots.
Second, people can smoke in conference room, but
they go out to smoke and they respected some
non-smokers. Third, no one made cutting remarks
at somebody, no one insulted somebody and no
one tried to show its superiority, no one made
fun of somebody, too. In this points I listed
some elementary principles, every Pole apply to
these principles, but you have your ups and downs.
There were people form abroad, so this I wrote up
becomes bigger importance, because it was a small
contribution in the structure of Polish positive
image, which is very pitiful.
The technical preparation of conference room was
very good: projector, a good loudspeakars. Rooms
had a high standard. In a word the technical
organization was beyond reproach. But it is
something to reprimand.
I mean payment in the motel. As it turned out the
prices are agreed. After arrival it is correction
of the price list, I do not know if it is on the
basis of opinion people's financial state or on
the basis of price list rises. In any case we had
to sink money into different things. Motel and
gastronomy are in high standard but the payments
are total amateurish. It is worse than in the
bazaar, there they fall some prices. I shudder to
think what is the price list for foreigners :-P.
In the end I was in different parties and I
turned a blind eye to typical Polish manners, but
sometimes somebody hurt me or my relatives and I
mentioned about this in report. But in this Fan
Meeting manners of Fans were very good and it was
a nice time we spent together, I hope my concert
made the time pass more pleasantly for you."
I awaked in the morning, it is 5:00. Damn! It
is time to get up, pack some things to the car,
because we are going to the Fan Meeting.
When I walked into the conference room and I
saw all these nice faces, became me warm in my
heart and I knew this dream go on, reality!
Really I do not know what to say, I felt I came
to my family I have not seen them for a long
while. Uncle from Germany even came! Dreams come
true, but we have to help them. This is going
on at Sandra's Fan Meeting!
Party was started with a little skid, because
of these people who clicked on button to voting.
But you wish you did not come, it was so great -
we had a chance to watch and listen excellent
materials of Thomas - music, videos, concerts and
a concert of Samurai who played his
compositions. It was a pleasant team, we can call
ourselves Sandra's Fans. In the evening we go
to a trip to Wieliczka and for the end of the day
we had sausages, beers and of course we had
Sandra's music and conversations to midnight. Forget
about a motel "Na Wierzyna" in
Wieliczka. I say more, let's round it so far as
you can. You will not tempted by great
conditions, the boss if this motel is a
disgusting boor. He is a man, who was a
distributor of milk. He grew rich and he thinks
the whole world belongs to him.
