This trip seemed so long in the planning, but here I am at last in Brighton UK, waiting for World Fantasy Convention 2013 to begin. I’ve registered, picked up my load of books and pamphlets, met a few people and looking out at the wet, windy weather, wishing I could bring it back with me during the Perth summer.
Getting to the con has been a month long effort. Phil and I decided to take a holiday in France and Italy, starting out in Paris:
Before heading down to the fabulous village of Loches, where the sights, history and food kept us busy for a full five days:
Then sur Le pont d’Avignon
And on to Cinque Terre (Italy)
And finally Firenze:
After WFC, we’re touring south England for a few days, before heading to London until mid November.
