Ok I probably wont go into as much detail as other people here have as I still haven't been home yet since the Con ended ;D Been to Crewe Heritage Centre and Liverpool since. Finally return South tomorrow. Either way left Thursday evening and stayed half way up.. I still have nightmares about the 9 hour journeys to BUCK so I prefer to break the journey in 2 parts now.. Yes I know I could Go by Rail or even Air but there you go. Anyway the crazy thing about Manchester for me now is that even though 12 Months have passed since I was last up there.. As soon as I get up there it feels like I've never left.. Other places I get this are Ludwigsburg and Germany and Glasgow in Scotland. On Fridays I can't resist a nostalgia trip just before the Pub Meet.. Drove past the venue of the Final BUCK and took some photos of the outside.. If you're a member of the GI Facebook you have seen me post them there last Friday ;D. Pub Meet was alright, I wish I didn't suck at socialising but alas there you go.. Least I met some familiar faces. The Con itself.. Honestly I thought it was better than last year.. I liked the edition of the 2nd building as well.. I got commissions from the likes of Ponebooth, Jowybean, BaDoodle and I do apologise for not remember the other one >.<.. I spent way more Money than planned.. and that doesn't help when you have a Galacon/Bronycon double coming up The Museum was a nice edition.. Whilst like many I jumped in on this generations I think things like UK Ponycon have helped me respect the earlier generations (Except you G3.5..Go play in Fire) The after Party was alright as well. I must admit I didn't realise how close we are to the main city where we were.. It's only as I met people I knew that we went into Town whilst waiting for the venue to open. It was alright, once again the fact that I really suck as Socialising made things a little awkward but was still able to enjoy. At least I was able to stay to the end this year unlike last year Where I had to leave early as I had work the next day. This year I'm still not home Lee Tocker did seem like a cool guy but I never met or spoke to him unlike Elly last year who immediately commented on my T-Shirt. So all In all I really enjoyed Griffish Isles.. Will I do it again next year?.. I don't see why not. Even though G4 will be finished by then and the sad fact is the Fandom is a shell of it's former self.. It's clear it still has it's loyal fans and hopefully it wont fully go away anytime soon. So yeah since GI ended I was at The Crewe Heritage Centre checking out the APT Train etc then at Liverpool where I visited the Beatles experience etc.. But that's all irrelevant to this thread .. But I just felt whilst I'm up this part of the Country why not go check stuff out you normally wouldn't have the chance to do? ;D I'll shut up now.
