ClexaCon 2019 has drawn to a close and now is the time to get everything together and head back to your life away from The Tropicana. I have some quick suggestions and tips for your travels away from Sin City, that is unless you live in Las Vegas in which case I’m guessing you are having a pretty quick trip. Get your toiletries together and get ready for your plane, train, automobile, or however else you are heading out of town.
Conventions are a place where people often indulge in a bit of spending from the attendees. If you are finding yourself struggling to get everything in your suitcase you might still have time to ship some things to your regular address. If you can’t manage that there are some ways you can minimize your packing. I always roll my clothes when I travel, which helps keep the amount of space my clothes take up to a minimum. If you aren’t sure how to do this you can find tutorials on YouTube and even articles. You also might need to do some layering of clothes, in case you really can’t roll some of them.
Before you leave the hotel, or wherever you are staying, make sure to double check that you’ve gotten some sort of contact information for the new friends you’ve made. Either make sure you’ve gotten some sort of social media handle or if you did exchange numbers make sure that you’ve got the right name and contact information down. If you find out that some friends are also traveling out of the same place as you consider carpooling or going together so that you don’t have to leave alone.
My other travel tip is make sure you’ve got some podcasts or shows to keep you occupied. My favorite way to pass the time while I wait for my flights is to read the books and comics I picked up at ClexaCon. I also listen to podcasts, I even recommended some yesterday that you could check out. I hope you have a safe trip back to wherever you are going and I look forward to seeing you at ClexaCon next year!
