005 – Go To A Sci-Fi Convention

Storm Troopers at Elstree Studio

This was another item on the 40at40 list this year that I was not sure I’d get done. Most conventions of this type I hear about happen in The States. Yet Sci-Fi has played such a huge part in my life, especially when growing up, I felt compelled to include it. I have been fascinated […]

002 – Eat in a Ukrainian Restaurant
