Hi aventine,
Even though this topic was set up for Newbies of the last
couple of months I shall also jump on the band wagon.

With me, it was way way back sometime in the beginning
of last year.
I decided to join this thing called the internet :user:

Sorry :D I will get straight to the point

I used the i-net to find out more about our girl, this led me to
the RED HOT Vanessa-Mae Home Page which then lead me here.

So blame loverly Glenn :D
Only joking Glenn :)

How did I find VMF?
Quite long story but I'll summarize them. :p

I searched about our beloved Vanessa-Mae on internet, found lots of her fansites, signed their guestbooks, and then Aventine found me on one of those guestbooks, visited my old site and left some message in my guestbook. :laugh:

So I visited Aventine's "Four Seasons of Vanessa-Mae", and gotcha ...! I found VMF. :p
Keep storming in the spirit!

I found this forum by searching for VM links. First I did not know what to think about this forum. After some contacts with Rijko, one of your well known members, I got convinced of the value of this forum. So, what this proves is that the value of this forum is made by the active members!

I read this forum 2 (?) years ago but I don't think I posted much. Then I lost it for a while... did you change address or something? Anyway, I found it again after a lot of searching and following links. I probably still won't post much, but it's nice to know I can come here for news :)

I think I was just surfing the net, searching for info on Vanessa Mae, when I stumbled upon the forum... and here I am!!!!

*listening to Vanessa Mae´s version of Vivaldi´s "L´Inverno: I. Allegro non molto"
Cuando el sol se oculta
el viento me acaricia
las estrellas aparecen
el mar me susurra amor.
When the sunset comes
the wind caresses me
the stars appear
the sea whispers me love.

I'm an oldy too, just did a search on 'vanessa-mae' and found this great Forum. Nice to see a lot of old friends too! :grouphug:

Since I became a fan of Vanessa-mae in 1996, a lot happened in 9 years! But one thing remained the same: for me VM is still the no. 1 violin queen.

Greetings to all Vanessa-mae fans,

Think I've told this story...

When I discovered Vanessa, I searched online for any info i could find about her (actually I was lookin for an MP3 of Red Hot, but I didn't know the song title, so I just kept searchin for Vanessa Mae) Eventually I stumbled onto (WEEEE GLENN) :bow: which offered great info, and links etc... I then followed every link, eventually coming here to this great community :grouphug: back a long time ago...thinkin bout 4/5 yrs ago (give or take a year or 2) and I've been here ever since. :user:

Hi all.

You probably remember me, the annoying english chick who posts useless stuff lol!

I found in a really silly way. Well, it can't be that silly, cause I found it didn't I? (Bet you all wish I hadn't... :( ) Anyway, I kept typing stuff in the address bar, (cheers glenn! :) ), etc etc you get what I mean, and ended up typing one day, and here I am!

So, now, and in everything else, I did it the hard way!

Love and licks, :kiss:

Love ya lots and lots like jelly tots and vodka shots! :D
