On Saturday, we did a quick shopping round (after a mandatory, but lighter breakfast at the Patrician of course!) before we went to see another bunch of dueSers for lunch at the Pickle Barrel. Naturally, quite some nerding ensued… though we had had the pleasure to see some of them for a bit on the night before, as they returned after seeing “Domesticated” for the second time.

This Friday, it was finally time for us to head for the top… well, technically not the *very* top, but rather the observation deck of the CN Tower! And what a thrilling experience it was… Continue reading In which a Swedish lighthouse gets to meet a relative, we walk on glass and find some Nemos.
After another breakfast at the Patrician, we all headed for the Distillery District again to meet up with Tom Melissis. We first met him at the RCW 139 convention last year and have been chatting with him on and off on Facebook and Twitter since then. Tom is known as detective “Dewey” from the last season of due South (or last two seasons if you’re from the US) and is currently starring in Degrassi, the (live and interactive) mystery dinner show called “Spy School” in Toronto, and more. And he’s a very funny guy; we got to laugh a lot. 😀 Continue reading Of many meetings, some partings… and a dyslectic Santanist.
The day before yesterday we finished the evening going out and having a light dinner at the food court at the Eaton Centre. Tiffany had some poutine, and I settled for a Subway sandwich. Erika got some sushi… which unfortunately turned out to be a very bad choice. Continue reading Of bad sushi and BRILLIANT theater… theatre, um yeah!

After sleeping for eight *wonderful* hours in this fantastic bed, I woke up to a cold, but lovely Toronto morning! We weren’t exactly in a hurry to get out, but when we did, we headed straight to the Patrician Grill for a late breakfast, or an early lunch. Continue reading Breakfast at The Patrician and some shopping!
So, today was the big day that we’d been waiting for since May, when we booked our flights and tickets! 🙂 Continue reading Checking out high tech “snyrtingar” and chasing sunsets!
I’ve put this off for *far* too long, and though I should have posted a full convention story, it just didn’t happen! Part reason is that there already are many great convention stories out there, available via rcw139.org. I just sort of let the pictures speak for themselves! 🙂
I can’t believe it’s over already!!! :’-(
These are my pics from the third and last day of the convention. Tomorrow, around 4 PM, we’ll leave Toronto, flying to New York, where we will spend the night. On Tuesday evening, we’re flying back to Sweden via Oslo (Norway).
Words can’t describe how grateful I am for all of you who made this into one of the most memorable weekends I’ve *ever* had! And of course, a special heartfelt THANK YOU KINDLY to the fantastic convention crew. You’re *amazing*!!!
I’ll update with my full convention story as soon as I’m home!
Here are some pictures from day 2 of the RCW139 “Thank You Kindly” convention. No time to add comments, but as I mentioned in my first convention related entry, I’ll give you a full story once I get home!
Oh, and before we move on to the galleries, here is our contribution to the RCW139 documentary–“Ride Forever” sung by the Great Joy Gospel Choir of Vasakyrkan, Umeå! Feel free to share the link if you like it. 🙂
We arrived in Toronto on Thursday and today, on Friday, was the first official day of the RCW 139 convention. Since our schedule is packed with lots and LOTS of interesting and fantastic events, I won’t be able to make very detailed updates until I return to Sweden. These are some pictures I took from the Thursday picnic and distillery district tour–and the Friday events. Some of the pictures are not of great quality since I didn’t have time to edit them much.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
