San Diego Comic Con Wannabes

It’s been a long time since I have written. Life gets in the way of things like recording it sometimes.
There are some exciting adventures on the horizon, so i wanted to write about in case it results in some networking or tips in how to achieve all we want.
We are planning a trip to North America. We being me, my husband and my sister. Hopefully there are no major dramas during the time we are traveling. I sometimes fall into disagreements with each of them individually. What if they gang up on me?
Its been a goal of ours to attend the San Diego Comic Con for quite a few years, and we are hoping that 2014 is the year this will happen. Its quite stressful, as at this stage, tickets aren’t on sale so we aren’t sure if we’ll be able to go. But we have our travel arrangements sorted and accommodation arranged. We will be in San Diego during Comic Con and we hope that we will also be attending Comic Con.
Having done a bit of research, we have learnt that tickets to Comic Con aren’t all that easy to obtain, sometimes selling out in less than 2 hours. We are going to have to be pretty lucky to be able to get just three of those tickets. I’m not sure what time of day it will be happening, but I imagine it will be in the middle of the night in Australia and the three of us will be on our respective computers trying to make it happen.
We are trying to be positive and have made plans as though it will be happening, but we have some back up plans in mind just in case we don’t get tickets. I’ve read about some off-site events that happen during the same time as Comic Con so maybe we can check out some of those. We’d also love to see Lego Land.
In 2009, my husband and I went on a day trip to San Diego Zoo from Anaheim where we were spending the week. The bus that dropped us off continued on with the other passengers into Mexico. The tour guide raved about how great there day was going to be in Mexico and we were a little sad to get off at the Zoo, although we still had a great day. Maybe its possible to do a day tour to Mexico this time.
Last year, we visited the Adelaide Zoo and before we went my sister was excited about seeing flamingos and it made me think about that day at the San Diego Zoo as that is the first thing you see when you enter the Zoo. Adelaide only has too flamingos. San diego has a few more.
The day we went to San Diego Zoo and saw flamingos.
What do you recommend to do while in San Diego? Would love to have some more back up plans, or maybe recommendations for restaurants.
So there is much excitement in the future. There are other parts of the trip that we are also excited about, but I’ll write about them in the next couple of blog entries.

      1. I had about 20 friends stationed at their computers ready to buy tickets as soon as they were on sale. It’s not easy! But be sure to try…it’s worth it!
