Not for me, just a general musing on how people can actually get registered for what’s become the Unicorn of starting places!
In 2007 when I registered for the 2008 event it was fine, still open after a fortnight. But something has changed in the last 5-6 years whereby entry has become very hard if you try to do it Online, and not in person or via a tour package. I believe there were a lot more Online slots reserved for Foreign entries back when I did it, not sure what the set-up is now; as otherwise the German ‘locals’ just hoover-up all the places on-site. So options…
- go there the year before & sign-up on site (this seems the #1 way now)
- volunteer? I reckon that would be a total blast (but quite a time/money commitment)
- tour package
- somehow get lucky Online next Monday?
