OMG IT’S BACK! After not doing a 5 Fandom Friday for quite sometime, I thought it would be fun to bring it back to my blog. 5 Fandom Friday was started by The Nerdy Girlie, and provides prompts for every Friday to write about (Click Here for more info & list of prompts). This weeks prompt actually goes along with #igglechat’s topic as well (there’s was Wonderlust), so it all just ties in together.
~My 5 Nerdy Places to Travel To~
I’ve been to Disneyland. My mom, one of my friends, and I went in December of 2009 for my 18th birthday. It was so, so much fun. We were there when they had the Haunted Mansion all decked out in Nightmare Before Christmas stuff, and the whole park was super Christmas-y. We stayed through New Years and one of my favorite memories I have from the trip is dancing at midnight in downtown Disney with one my greatest friends.
My mom recently found out that the Star Wars section of Disneyworld is being redone, and she really wants to go see it. I’ve never been to Florida, and I think it would be really fun to see the differences between the two parks. Plus STAR WARS lol.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter:
Also in Florida (can you sense a theme of I really want to go to Florida? lol). I know there is one in California now as well, but if I’m already going to be there for Disneyworld, might as well as hit up Universal Studios as well right?
I am a HUGE Harry Potter nerd, and I have been wanting to go ever since the park opened. Just haven’t had the time/opportunity. Hoping that will change though and I get to check the place out!
221B Baker Street:
Home to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and now there is a museum in London, England of the detective who was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and has had a bit of a resurgence in recent years. For me it’s primarily from the BBC’s show of Sherlock staring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. The show started in 2010 and I found it in 2011 because of my very good friend Kat, who “made” me watch it with her at her apartment when I would stay there in college.
The American Claassic Arcade Museum (ACAM):
Found in New Hampshire, this museum has all kinds of arcade games from 1980’s and up. “The American Classic Arcade Museum will be a one of a kind facility that will keep this part of American history alive for those that experienced it and for those who were too young to remember.” As a child I didn’t get to go to arcades, I lived in the country, my arcade was the great out doors. Which is fine, but as an adult I think it would be cool to see all of the machines and games, and how it’s all changed as technology has gotten better.
Home to one of my amazing friends, and also home to the Witch Trials of 1693. Not only would be awesome to be able to visit my friend but to also learn about the Trials and experience some of that education and culture. I just think it would be really interesting!
