Halfway Through 2024: Summer Travels

We are nearly halfway through this year and my summer has gone from busy at home to a busy travel season, too. As you know, I usually spend a week in July in Las Vegas, but this year we won't be doing that. I made it to Vegas in March for the Travel Goods Show, where I was able to meet up with friends and family, along with doing some solo things and spending 2 1/2 days at the show. 

An update on my upcoming trips for the summer/early fall.

This July Leaky Con is coming back to Portland, which gives me another weekend to indulge in Harry Potter. The other weekend of Potter goodness is our annual Wizarding Weekend at the end of July. That's all at home. Eric's fam is having a reunion, too, so I'll be heading to Sacramento to do that and get some quick sightseeing in before I have to be home to set up for my own Harry Potter celebration.

In August, Eric has a work conference in Denver and we had been talking about going there for a few years now in order to check out their Meow Wolf installation, Convergence Station. If you've been following for a while, you might remember our trip to Omega Mart in Vegas. That was so amazing, we've made it a mission to visit all the Meow Wolf locations. 

So, we've booked ourselves into a new vacation rental for a few nights before his conference started and we'll be doing Convergence Station and a couple days of quick touristy things. We'll be there for 3 full days before I come home and he has to do work. I'm definitely looking to pack my days with the best of the city and I'm open to restaurant recs, though I have already made a reservation for brunch at Linger.

After this, I'll have a pretty big break from travel that will include working our non-profit booth at Rose City Comic Con and repacking my bag for my next trip to...Nashville! I haven't been since I was very little and I don't think Eric has ever been. We'll be seeing all that the city has to offer, but also doing a side trip to Pigeon Forge to do Dollywood and stop at a couple places along the way back. 

That might be the end of our summer, but possibly not the end of our travels for the year. We have talked about the possibility of going to Vegas in early December, but we don't have solid plans for that yet. I'll keep you updated though. And, as always, you can follow me on Instagram for more photos of my trips, closer to when I'm actually on them.

Where are you going this summer?
