Squeeeeee Odyssey Trip Report (VERY LONG POST!)

OK, it only took nearly a month from the time I got back, but here it is.

Participants may feel free to correct any details I get wrong. I was in a daze the whole time and not taking notes as copiously as I usually do.

I know I've said it before, but the two people most responsible for my Barrowmania and therefore the trip are timbershiver who asked me to beta her Jack/Wilson fic before I had any clear idea who or what a Captain Jack Harkness was (I may have had him confused with Captain Jack Sparrow) and hllangel who became my Barrowman Guru after I'd seen the pictures and had the *GASP* moment.

The actual Odyssey came together the day of THIS POST when the Barrowman Panto/Burn in Oliver thing made it virtually impossible NOT to plan the trip.

Then in August, came Hubby's motorcycle accident, and the six month nightmare that followed, but somehow we got through it, I got the time off and on January 12, 2009, I left for the UK.

LONG narrative and pictures behind the cut.Collapse )
