It all started at the IntSaab 2022. I was hoping to make contact with some Portuguese Saab enthusiasts there. Sure, if so from Saab then preferably anywhere in the world. think! That was the mild paraphrase of - no one from Portugal was in Luxembourg. (Are you from Portugal and know Saab clubs or meetings? Please message me) 😉
Instead, initial contacts were made with Spain. Promise - if I'm in the area, I'll be happy to take part in a Saab meeting.
Only two months later on October 03.10.2022rd, XNUMX the time had come. A short message to the Saab Club Spainwhether there will be a SAAB meeting in the next few days. And what a coincidence, only 3 weeks later an autumn meeting in Trujillo was announced.
So briefly confirmed the participation and used the meantime to prepare another Saab statement.
On October 21.10.2022, 400, it was about XNUMX km in rainy weather Trujillo. Since we were only able to leave late due to personal appointments, all the Spaniards were already in the restaurant.
But the saying came true that if you come too late, you park right in front of the location 😉 which was only an advantage given the heavy rain that evening.
In the restaurant we were then received very openly, because it doesn't happen that often that a German travels to Spain to a Saab meeting at short notice. Two hours and many pleasant conversations later, we had the impression that we had always been there.
The next morning, in bright sunshine, 17 Saabs rolled into the Plaza Mayor in Trujillo. Except for a 9-3X in beautiful red, it was only 900s and 9-3s. After many greetings and nice conversations we went on the road to Guadalupe.
There were a few clouds, but the weather gods had an understanding. The rain from the previous day stayed away.
On the Plaza Mayor in Berzocana there were already 21 Saabs, which must have multiplied somehow on the way. We treated ourselves to a small snack in bright sunshine.
From Berzocana we then went on to Guadalupe, where part of the group got involved in a city tour and another part with a glass of wine and a good cheese Cured just had pleasant conversations.
After lunch together, we went back to Trujillo, although some of the group had already said goodbye because they had to go back to Madrid or Barcelona.
And yes, there it was again, the rain. For being gone all day, he came all the harder now.
In some places the road was no longer visible and water skiing was probably even possible. In the evening there was a dinner together and the promise. It was the first Saab meeting in Spain, but definitely not the last.
