See you at the Top of the World!

Well it's done! In less than 120 days I'll be flying to Iceland for the 5th EVE Online Fanfest! Earlier this week I booked my flights and hotel. The only thing that's missing right now is the actual Fanfest pass, which isn't yet available for purchase on the EVE Store.

So I'll be staying at the Grand Hotel Reykjavik for 4 nights, arriving on the morning of Nov. 5th and leaving on the evening of the 9th. If you're also staying there, drop me a comment and we'll try to get together for a beer or something. I chose the Grand based on the fact that it's close to where the event will be held, though I later learned that it was far from the downtown nightlife. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find a few guys (and gals) to share a cab with.

After talking with my wife about it, we decided that I should go by myself this year. Maybe she'll join me next year and enjoy the Sisters of EVE Program. For this first time though, I'll be on my own!

If you're curious to see what the 2007 edition of the event was like, head over to Winterblink's photo set and get small taste. Or read about it in EON issue #10.

As for myself, I just can't wait to get there!

See you there mate. Me and the wife will be staying elsewhere, and are going for a week XD, but I'm sure we'll get the chance to meet up over pizza and beer during the event itself.

@Ombey - I'm sure I will! Hopefully we can meet up during the '09 edition.

@Mandrill - That'll be sweet!

I've always wanted to go to the Fanfest in theory... But it's right smack in the middle of the busiest time of my semester, and it's Iceland... How am I gonna tell my friends that I'm leaving to somewhere colder than the Midwest for a... computer game festival? I'll need a hole in the ground, lol.

I'm sure you'll have tons of fun. Some pics are definitely required!

That's a promise Bri - lots of pictures and details on all that I see and learn!
