Whoa! I'm back here at last. After zero updates for so long, I'm not sure if there's still anyone reading this but it's good to be home after a couple weeks in the US, or Indianapolis and New York to be exact. I was actually back around the end of last month but was busy writing about my once-in-a-lifetime Gen Con 2014 experience for local geek site Here Be Geeks. You can read the 5-part article I wrote here.
I'll probably repeat the same old things as my geek posts but I don't care. Hah! I had an amazing time there, good food and everyone I met was extremely gracious so where do I begin? I guess it'll be more personal and foodie stuff here.
First up is that Indianapolis was a blast. Even though I stayed around Monument Circle and only ventured within a tiny part of the city, I enjoyed every minute of it. Just across the road from the hotel was a row of restaurants, a Starbucks and most importantly, a comic book store!
What I absolutely love about Indianapolis (at least in my vicinity) were the wide open spaces, no high-rise buildings and the relatively tranquil surroundings. There was also hardly any traffic around and I can imagine if not for the convention, the streets would probably be almost empty most of the time. I can honestly say that I like the all-round slower pace of life.
Just look at that! How can you say "no" to clear blue skies like that?!? I gotta admit I was pretty apprehensive about the trip like I mentioned in my last post before leaving the country, but am really grateful that everything turned out, not just fine but fantastic.
