It’s been a rough time trying to plan out some farther from home adventures, a big part of it being the struggle with chronic illness and trying to function like normal. Hence why there wasn’t a trip to the Superman Celebration this year, and instead a trip to the hospital.
BUT! Fear not.
I’m planning a trip. A proper trip. Finally.
It’s the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars. The geek community is buzzing still from Star Wars Celebrations. We’re a few months from The Last Jedi. Disney World and Disneyland are hard at work on the Star Wars expansion. It’s an amazing time for any Star Wars fan.
And, with all of this, is the knowledge that there are LOADS of Star Wars merch out there, including some that are perfect for those of us that travel quite a bit, or even folks heading to Disney sometime in the near future, that want to be as decked out in geeky things as possible. I always do! (Seriously. All the way down to Star Wars shoes for Star Wars Weekends 2015)
So, here’s a list of some handy items for any travelers heading to a galaxy far, far away:
Star Wars Boba Fett Mimopowertube 2 Portable Charger: Tired of your phone dying while you’re on the go? I know these things are SO helpful for trips to Disney, for me. I kill my battery before my day is halfway over. But with one of these babies in your bag, you can keep your phone alive well into the night.
Next year begins a grand adventure, with my very first trip to Canada! I’ve been wanting to go to Fan Expo Toronto a few years now, and I’ve finally decided to go for it next year. While the con is definitely my main purpose while I’m there, I’m hoping to see a few things in Toronto if I can, and possibly stretch my trip a bit to visit a few other areas in Canada. One particular place being a comic shop in Windsor I’ve been dying to see.
This is one of my bigger trips, and definitely one I need to be strategic about financially to pull off. I’ve already began the good old change jars for spending money. I need to do some extra shoots, sell some art work, maybe have a yard sale or two, just to help cushion my wallet a bit over the next year. But, I’ll make it happen, and keep updating on the progress as I go over the next several months.
Stay tuned for more the next few weeks, including more on Halloween Horror Nights this year!
