I got back from vacation almost two weeks ago, and here I am only now getting around to posting photos and writing something up. In my defense, I got back and we had an aikido seminar the next weekend. And I've also got around 2,000 pictures to go through (I'm about half way, I think -- there's a lot of junk).
The World Con was fun. I still feel like an outsider, but then, it was only my second one. I'm a panel junkie, but I bet part of that is coming to each panel ready to discuss or hear discussion. They're new to me, not a continuation from somewhere else, so it doesn't feel like a repitition. purplecthulhu and purpletigron introduced purplejavatroll and I around some places. I certainly never lacked for people to talk to or things to do. The two panels I sat on were enjoyable, so that was an interesting new experience, too. Not too different from work, except with an audience actually.
purplejavatroll's mom stayed in London during the con, too, but spent her time going on tours, nearly getting lost, and I think generally enjoying herself.
I've got some photos up on Flickr from in and around Bath, but I'll post something about that when I've got more material from the places went to see posted.
One of my co-workers mentioned Blurb when I was talking to him about how many pictures I took. I've made a photo book there using photos from our Berg Lake trip last year. If it looks ok, I think I'll do something similar with some of these vacation shots and print copies for a few family members.
