Does anyone have an accommodation in/near Esinio Lario they'd like to split?
I realize now I probably should have booked earlier...
I would be glad to pay half the cost of a hotel room or airbnb, you can
have the bed, and I'll take a couch or even the floor.
(Apologies for a non-typical use of the mailing list!)
children between 6 and 10 years old can join the green week at Wikimania Esino Lario (from the 21st June to the 28th).
Priority is given to the volunteers organizing Wikimania but anyone can attend it (and I am pretty sure adults can join the excursions too with their kids if they wish so).
you find the description of the activities and the costs here https://wikimania2016.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programme/Green_week_for_the_child…
if you want to register your kids please contact Lara Pensa at wikimania2016(a)wikimedia.it
all the best
For those of you who have received a full or partial scholarship from the
WMF to attend Wikimania '16, I want to let you know that we will be
emailing you all directly with more information concerning your travel
preparations to Esino Lario (transportation, accommodation information,
insurance, important contacts, helpful hints, etc.) in the coming week.
This will also include information about the direct shuttle bus service
from the airports that is going to be provided on June 21 and 23, as well
as the return on June 27.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions concerning
we plan to have direct busses (if there are reservations) to Esino Lario on Tuesday 21st and Thursday 23rd
* from Milano Malpensa at 11am, 3 pm and 9pm
* from Linate at 3pm
* from Orio al serio at 7pm
The direct return busses will be on Monday:
* To Milano Malpensa at 5am (estimated arrival at 7.30am), 9am (estimated arrival at 11.30am) and 2pm (estimated arrival at 4.30pm)
* To Milan at 9am (arrival at 11).
On Sunday there is too much traffic and it is much better to use the train from Varenna to Milano Centrale and then trans/public busses to the airports.
please contact me also off list if you have any suggestion we will try to accomodate. We can not have busses every 2 hours otherwise the cost for a one way ticket is around 150 euro. We will probably add more busses when Wikimedia Foundation will have figure out the tickets for the scholarship recipients and staff members. Please also consider blablacar (car sharing system) if you travel from Italy or if you rent a car.
