Going to Sweden!
Last week, on Friday, I flew over to Gothenburg, Sweden to join my fellow 501st and Rebel Legion friends for my first troop in a very, very long time. I had taken a break for a while, when I noticed that I lost a little bit of the trooping spark there for a second, but not to worry, I knew it would come back. And what better choice than to join the Sci-Fi convention that the Swedes are so lucky to have four times a year! So since I don't feel...fit enough after the winter for the Battle Arena outfit yet, I decided to wear my beloved Packing Gown costume. I was excited to go to Gothenburg, since I had only been there once as a child. It truly is one of the most beautiful Scandinavian cities I've seen, at least what I saw of it. I was lucky with the weather also, which of course makes a huge difference. I stayed at a fellow troopers place, in fact, I think we were about 12 people there, which of course brings lots of fun to the weekend, and after getting out stand ready (in fact, I was just goofing around) in the convention center, there was "Spaceballs", Pizza and laughter to be had!
