@Fiddlerman - yes indeed - "long after we have all put our bows down" ( silent bows, if you know what I mean - well - it comes to us all )
@SethroTull86 - in the post above, after the dance band finishes, I give a long chat about how the fiddle is shared, what we can do with it as hosts, and so on. Trust me, you will have a lot of fun when you finally receive her !
I am totally on board with a never ending journey. I can only imagine how much character she has.
Would be awesome for someone that knew the providence for this violin to tell The Traveler's story. Perhaps one of us should write a book about it one day?

@Donald - community member and fiddle-brother - it would be useful if you could possibly give us some kind of update on the community fiddle, you know, "The Traveler" - like tell us exactly where she is on her "slow boat" to Brazil.... I assume you have the details...
Much Appreciated man, thank you !
EDIT: Of course - I also meant to reference @augustoad - I assume you have not yet received her... Because I KNOW you would let US know... Equally - if you (Augusto) have any news - which I assume you don't - please do let us know...
This just feels "bad".... A whole year has passed by, and more, and all we managed were 5 players (well, not counting Donald who didn't actually play her) - all the 4 UK hosts held her for the agreed 4 or so weeks...
Let's get this sorted....
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
I tried looking but couldn't find anything that gave ship information. I think @BillyG tried looking once, so maybe he had some luck finding the ship info?
@fiddle chick Can you add me back to the list? I'd like to host her again 🙂
On a journey to learn the fiddle since July 24, 2015
I'm sorry I don't have the time to take part in the forums as much as I want to. I've just recently paid the tax for receiving the violin (120 USD, ouch! but totally worth it) and it's on it's way to be delivered to my doorstep. As soon as it arrives, I'll make sure to post here again. Also, I'll be recording (hopefully) a few videos of me playing with it. I'll try to take it to a cool location, even though I don't live in "postcard Brazil" as I like saying - I pretty much live in a concrete jungle, but there are some interesting nearby places that I can make some videos on.
Again, as soon as it arrives I'll be posting here! Is there anything else I should know or do with the violin?

Woooooohoooooo!!!! I’m so very happy to read your post, Augusto! I’ve been so upset and worried about whether it would actually ever arrive in Brazil after all these months. I hope you enjoy hosting it and get lots of good pics and videos. I’m sorry you had to pay such a high tax to receive it, but remember we talked about that ahead of time and you said it wouldn’t be a problem. I hope that’s still the case. If you need help with the expenses, please send me a PM. I’ll be in touch in a few weeks with instructions on where to ship it to next. Enjoy!!!
Let the bow flow.
