Getting a Golden Ticket to today’s Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory aka the San Diego Comic Con
I have visited San Diego more than any other vacation destination but it’s not for the warm beaches or the California sun. It’s to be crammed into the San Diego Convention Center with thousands of happy nerds, embracing their inner geeks, to attend the San Diego Comic Con.
In 2015, 130,000 tickets were sold out in one single hour. You almost feel like you have a better chance at winning the lottery than getting a registration ticket. There is no better depiction of this experience than this clip from the Big Bang Theory
This is the place where I recharge my creative batteries. If you like comic books, gaming, super heroes, costumes, or seeing upcoming television and movie programming, it’s the best 4 days you will ever have on vacation. For this blog post, I wanted to try to share that experience with you. Armed with only my iPhone, here are two clips from my favorite panels:
1) )Outlander Panel: Anything Sam Heughan says with his Scottish accent comes out sexy. So when each panelist was asked to read a quote, the audience was ready to be entertained by the actor who plays Jamie Fraser.
2) Marvel’s Agents of Shield: Chloe Bennet (Skye/Daisy Johnson) is asked to talk about the moment the cast found out that Agent Grant Ward (played by Brett Dalton) was a Hydra Agent.

What has been your most memorable vacation? That one that has helped inspire, relax, or revitalize you?
