Hi there, Im from the UK and travelling alone but sharing a room. 

Any other Brits going as would love to get in touch and meet you at the Con too?

I am nervous as never travellled alone before let alone to Canada.

Pleeaaaaseee get in touch, even if you are from other countries.  |I'd rather not be a loner  :(

My name is Janet and i am 54 from Essex and probably be one of the older ones going.  I have a ticket for the banquet but only only the reserve list for the Cruise and Tour.  Would love to do other things too but initially photo/autographs of the celebs.

Thanks

Janet

Hi Janet. This is Jeannette again. I got your message and will send you a reply probably tonight but don't worry. There seems to be a small group of us 50 somethings that are attending and traveling alone. Maybe we can all share a table at the banquet so we don't feel so alone. l will write more later. Do you know yet when you plan on arriving?

Hi Janet,

Atlantia here. I am originally from Surrey and have a cousin who lives in Essex. I am ever so slightly older than you, but there are alot of us in this age group. I can remember my first con and traveled by myself. I thought that I would have no one to talk to. It turned out really great, thanks to a forum such as this. There will be lots of people organising meals together, chats and a whole pletherer of things. Just stay tuned, you won't be left out. I look forward to meeting you. ☺

🙌
The brightest light is invisible, it shines through your deeds and warms the Universe.

Hello this is William and his Dad. We are travelling over from England on the 8th Sept. We are coming over from Somerset. We would be happy to meet up with you at the convention. We are looking forward to seeing everybody there.

Hello everyone

I am from the UK and travelling on my own and a little nervous and a little shy and never travelled abroad on my own before.

I love everything about Stargate and Richard and all his other work and would love to meet up with other people from the UK and other countries.  I am on Facebook too. 

I am sharing a room at the Sheraton with a lovely lady from Oklahoma whom I have made friends with on Facebook and fan groups.

Anyone out there from UK too please, I live in Essex

Thanks

Janet

Hi again!

I posted earlier but since I'm now planning on bringing my dog, it was suggested that I post her name and a picture of her here too. She's a basset hound and her name is 'Hela' (Norse goddess of the underworld) because she was much darker when she was born. Her face was totally black! She's 10 weeks old now and has lightened up considerably! She'll be 9 months old by convention time and lots bigger.

(Now let's see if I can attach a picture...)

(Ok, maybe this time...)

Well, no luck.  "The upload folder is full" (whatever that means). The pictures are only about 50kb so that shouldn't be the problem. I guess I'll try again later.

To attach the picture, you'll probably have to load it to somewhere like photobucket or flickr, then link to it with the [img] tags.  I don't think we have photo-hosting turned on here.

Go here:

http://picpaste.novarata.net/

- In the middle of the screen should be a button that says: "Choose File." Click on that and select the file you want to upload.

- Then press the "Upload" button. Your image will upload and a new page will load... "Upload Successful" will be on the new page.

- Look for the third text box that says "Direct link." Click in that box, and the entire line will be highlighted. Right click your mouse and click "copy" on the menu.

- Come to your post you want to put on this site. Click the third button on the 2nd row (it says "Insert Image" if you hover over it).

- Paste your link in between the IMG tags that appear.

You are done!!!


*** Try not to upload a photo larger than 800x600 pixels - or it will be too large to see on most screens.

Thanks for everyone's help. (I told you I wasn't computer savvy!) Let's see if it works now.

The first picture is of Hela sprawled out on the couch. (Tough life, huh?) The second is a close-up of her face (isn't she adorable)!





I'll add more pictures as she gets older. I hope all the dog-lovers at the convention come and say 'Hi' - she loves people.

HI ALL, IM FROM UK AND COMING ON MY OWN.  I THINK I MAY HAVE ALREADY MENTIONED THAT.  I AM SHARING A ROOM WITH A NIE LADY FROM THE USA. 

I WOULD LIKE TO MEET AS MANY FROM THE UK AS POSSIBLE WHO ARE GOING AND OBVIOUSLY FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD AND ALSO MY FLIGHT BACK TO UK IS NOT UNTIL ABOUT 5.30 PM ON THE 13TH.  I WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING THAT DAY AND NOT JUST SIT AND WAIT FOR MY FLIGHT,  OBVIOUSLY NOT TOO FAR AS DON'T WANT TO MISS MY FLIGHT BACK.

WOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED IN ACCOMPANYING ME AS DON'T REALLY WANT TO BE A LONER, LOL. 

THIS IS MY FIRST GATECON AND VERY EXCITED.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT MY ROOM MATE'S PLANS ARE YET FOR THE 13TH BUT HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL CONTACT ME, PLEASE.

THANKS.

OH I AM 54 YEAR OLD WOMAN BY THE WAY.

HI ALL, IM FROM UK AND COMING ON MY OWN. <snip>

Hi Jel - It's a little early yet to make plans but don't worry - I'm sure a bunch of people will be in the same boat. My sister and I will be leaving on the 13th also but don't know the time yet. But don't worry - people will be around and going places/doing things. Most just don't have their plans firmed up yet. I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

I think Hela is going to steal the limelight in a whole lot of photos, and photo-bomb others.
Absolutely Everybody’s at Gatecon

Hey Janet and everyone out there I'm from the UK as well, Wales actually and I am travelling on my own. Gonna be heading for gatwick on the 6th and flying  out on the 7th then flying home on the 13th. I am interested to meet and chat to others. I'm quite a shy person so would be great to talk to others. I'm on Facebook if anyone else would like to add me, love to get to know everyone.
