    Wish I could go, especially after having to miss last year (for Reasons) - sadly, real life is getting in the way so my Euro-con fix will have to wait another year.

    I didn't get to go in 2015 so I'm looking at going this year. I'll probably provisionally book a hotel with free cancellation for now.

    Looking forward to it. Think I will do what I did a couple of years ago and spend Friday doing tourist things in Stuttgart before the con.

    Let's see ticket booked, hotel booked (staying at the Ibis as it's cheaper!) and flight is booked. All I need is some Euro's saved up and an unopened Rainbow Dash figure for Ashleigh Ball to sign and I'm good to go!

    I've booked the Ibis budget in ludwigsburg. Used it last time - Clean, cheap and close to the con. Pretty basic but hey, how long are you gonna be spending in your room?

    Yep! Used it last time and it was nice plus spent an evening in Stuttgart looking around! Plus I'm a member of the Accor club and get a few perks that I can't get in the budget!

    A warning to earth ponies who need flights(and cant fly there themselves..or teleport). The manchester ryanair flight has now gone up from 48 return to 61 (flying out friday and back monday) (flying out thursday and back tuesday still 48 quid) So book now if you want to take that route.

    Awesome news. However I'll now need to get an unopened Rarity or Luna or Octavia to get signed (my poor wallet! )
