Whew, so now that's done, what next?
Eve EventsCharity Dinner - I figured I could put off buying these a bit longer while I figure things out. It sounds pretty good, though I know I've heard mixed commentary in the past about the "dinner" part of it being pretty cheap and the implied access to CCP Devs and such being scanty. Honestly, I'm generally of the mindset that if you want to give money to a charity, just do it directly with cash, so this would be about the event more than the charity.
Pub Crawl - I don't know if my liver is ready for this. Seriously, I'm not a huge drink and mob scene kind of person, so I'd probably pass on this one anyway. It does seem to be quite the scene for the Eve players running rampant through Iceland.
Sisters of Eve Tour - Now seeing Iceland is indeed part of the plan, but the question here is if I want to do it under the context of Eve or just on my own before or after Fanfest. I'd be interested to hear anyone's opinions of the Tour indeed.
LodgingI probably ought to get in on this quick too. I have a coworker who is a big fan of visiting Iceland, so I'll get her opinion on options in general. I'm hoping a bit that if I get a place for a longer period spanning Fanfest it might not be quite so crazy.
AirBnB type settings sound best for the group reservations rather than the solo traveller. I should note that I'm sure I'm going to be completely socialled-out, so I don't intend to try to work out a group-lodging situation.
Beyond EveA good part of the appeal here is seeing Iceland, which I've heard so many cool things about. The real question is how much time to spend on one side of Fanfest or the other to do that. After Fanfest will I be too burned out (or too excited) to enjoy seeing things? Before Fanfest seems like a better idea - then it's a matter of how much time to set aside.
If nothing else, it will be an adventure...
