Just popping in to say how exciting it is to me how far away some people come from and that we have so many great people in town during SDCC. It is thrilling!

Agreed. I just read through all of the posts and I can't believe how far some people are traveling!  I'm happy they get to make the trip.  Maybe I will bump into some of you at the Con!  Enjoy and be safe!

For all of the people who travel from very far away, do you also travel to other international cons, like Tokyo and Paris? Those are cons I would love to attend some day, but don't, due to the distance involved.

I've been to London Comic-Con, but I didn't travel there specifically for that (in fact, my friends and I kind of stumbled upon it).

I wouldn't go to a con in Tokyo, maybe Paris because I can do it by train or a short flight. I'd consider other US cons, if I could combine it with a citytrip or something. For instance NYCC might be a nice trip together with some NYC sightseeing.

Friends Of CCI Forum: Map 2014 UPDATED!
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Hi, everybody! It's been a hell of a year, right?

Well, here we are with now less than ONE HUNDRED less days to go before San Diego Comic-Con 2014 and, as I agreed with myself, I would come back and update the map and links for this thread.

By this point, we should all know if we are able this year to make it to the Con in July, what with Badge sales all done and dusted and accommodation getting sorted, slowly but surely. So, to that end, I've gone through and added all the names and locations to the map that needed putting in and we now should have a comprehensive map of the truly international audience of this amazing event!

Don't forget - while the title of the thread is 'Where are you coming from?', it's more of a Friends Of CCI members map (I'm wondering if I should change that...) so you don't neccasarily have to be attending SDCC in 2014 to be listed on here. Do check and see if all the data I've entered is correct, especially if, for example, you may have moved since this map was last put together.

And, of course, if you'd like to be added to the map, simply reply to this thread with the location you're coming from - we're not wanting street names but if you could add a city, that would make the map a little more accurate.

I'm glad people have still been taking part in this thread and I hope to see a few more pins added as we get closer to July!

You can find the map - and share it with your friends - here:

The map is a great idea.  Wow...didn't realize how many countries were represented on the board.

So do we have two maps?  I'm in the Del Cerro neighborhood of San Diego, for this one. I recall another one we could pin ourselves onto and I think I got that one.

Ahh, right - when I first put this thread together, I created a map which was linked in the first post but looks like someone's set up another map in my absence! That's what happens when you disappear for a while!

It's a bit late here in the UK, where I am... In the morning, I'll look at the pins in the stand-in map and transfer them over. Thanks for pointing it out, cracks.
