Hello everyone and welcome to my Gamegune 2009 blog! My name is Joona or natu as they call me and Iâ€™m going to be blogging on crackclan.com site throughout the event. Weâ€™ve only just settled in at the city of Bilbao but letâ€™s go 13 hours back in timeâ€¦!
My beloved alarm went off at 6am, which is an ungodly hour to wake up at. An exception to a certain rule was made as I had already packed everything ready the night before our departure â€“ least thanks to myself, mostly thanks to a certain female who gave me no slack on the matter : (. My journey started at 7:10am sharp as my friend Hannu was waiting downstairs for me to hop into his car for an hour drive to the Helsinki-Vantaa international airport. After a brief stop at a gas station midway through, which involved a little coffee and gasoline, I was already at the airport where I found rest of the crew already waiting for me. As shocking as it may sound, everyone looked very tired and ready for some sleep on the planes : ). I mean gamers are often known to be people who havenâ€™t slept a minute around this time in the morning and most of our team hadnâ€™t due to excessive amounts of counter-strike the night before!
